I have samples of both and never took the plunge for Vetiver Tonka… though I’m about to buy Fat Electrician.
VT is more tonka then vetiver. I actually get very little vetiver at all… its just there to ever so slightly offset the, IMO overly sweet tonka. I find VT a bit too feminine for me to wear comfortably. Lots of round, sweet hazelnutty tonka. Very little vetiver.
FE on the other hand has more sharp vetiver to justify being classified a “vetiver”. The vanilla in it isn’t overly sickeningly sweet, and the vetiver give it an ‘electric’ feel some describe. More a balancing act of two contrast.
I like FE better.
