    Without question, the Creed 1948.

    The Guerlain is a fine and enjoyable fragrance, but the Creed 1948 Vetiver is in a class by itself. *It is amazingly fresh and masculine, as uplifting as bottled sunlight, wearable anywhere. *Smooth and timeless.

    Quite possibly the best Creed ever made.

    I have them both, the Guerlain for evening and dress-up occasions, and the Creed for daytime wear and less formal occasions!

    Hands down, Creed Vetiver 1948! This was the easiest choice I have made in a long time!

    Guerlain is much better and more complex and rich scent.
    And if you could reach the vintage version of it - it`s just a piece of art itself!

    Creed V 1948 is simple and monotoned: ginger, vetiver, some mineral note...

    I don't see this one as an either/or. Two very different scents, each excellent in its own right, with the only similarity being their moniker. If you love vetiver, both have much to recommend, as has been well described by previous posters, but the vetiver in the Creed is much gentler and stays in the background more. I have found that people who are not as enamored of vetiver as I am tend to prefer the Creed.

    Good point. The vetiver in the Guerlain is more "up front" and a bit more pungent; in the 1948 Creed it's more of an equal partner in the overall blend. So the 1948 could be considered a vetiver for those who like their vetiver more "well-behaved".
