    Etro, Jo Malone and Fréderic Malle got my votes. Would have voted for Annick Goutal if it had been included.

    When I think Vetiver I always think there's actually two scent classes of it,
    a. the raw type scents like Villoresi, Etro, Roccobarocco and
    b. the highly refined types like Guerlain, Creed, Azzaro Pure Vetiver, Carvens, Malizia Uomo etc (I have difficulty detecting it in Lanvin's).

    Anyhow, I haven't tested all the one's that can be polled on, but my favourites are
    Villoresi (raw)
    Guerlain's (refined)
    Azzaro Pure Vetiver (as good as Chrome)

    I love Lanvin Vetiver (vintage)
    I still must try the new one though, they say it's different
    I like l'Occitane Vetiver
    Guerlain Vetiver and Vetiver Ice
    - nice colognes, easily wearable
    I like to apply and forget about them during the day. Should they be noticed
    by others, it will be ok but not really intended. Best for work and in the summer.
    Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver - 'to test' I heard it praised so much that
    I believe I may not know the 'best' yet!
    Puig Vetiver - 'to test' I like the house

    This is maybe a bit off-topic, but I bought a pretty expensive 100% genuine, essentual Vetiver oil. This stuff is brown and out of the 5ml bottle stinks like hell. Very, very damp and earthy, no Vetiver or grass notes at all. It almost made me run to the toilet! I couldn't resist to try it on my skin, but it's of course for the use with a diffuser. Longevity was around 48 hours (only two drops!). The evolution was mindblowing to say the least. It changed the whole time for about two hours, then stayed more or less the same. What also made the testing on skin quite interesting was the fact that after the two hours it was exactly like the old Guerlain Vetiver, maybe slightly more intense, but the smell was identical IMO. They say it's bad to use an essential oil on skin, but I will do it again. Can't wait to try the 100% genuine, essentual indian sandalwood oil on skin ....

    It looks like Guerlain's Vetiver is the winner, but which one? The old or the new version??
    Probably we need a new poll.

    I smelled Creed's Vetiver today and it smelled very
    'green'. Did not care much for it at all. Still preferred Guerlain.
