    Default Just Found a Replacement for Old Guerlain Vetiver

    I love Route du Vétiver, so don't get me wrong. But still, it's an earthy, almost "dirty" vetiver frag in comparison to Guerlain's old formulation.

    I just bought a bottle of Barbier des Isles by Comptoir Sud Pacifique from PaulSC, and WOW is it just what I was looking for! (I wanted a crisp, clean, sharp vetiver along the lines of the old Guerlain -- something I could wear with a shirt and tie.)

    Barbier des Isles really seems to fit the bill perfectly. Not an identical frag, mind you, just very, very much along the same lines as the old (and regrettably re-formulated) Guerlain.

    Thanks again, Paul!

    Oh, hooray! I'm so glad you're enjoying it. It just wasn't for me, so I'm pleased it's found a new home where it's more fully appreciated. Cheers!

    Your clean crisp vetiver description of the CSP sounds like Original Vetiver by Creed (although I'm sure the CSP is cheaper...), no?

    It's about $45 plus shipping for a 50ml (the CSP), retail.
