    VG is beautifull, if you can stand it. It has much more character than 212, it is more complex and less popular.

    I find I do not wear Vetiver very well, and it seems 212 goes well on lots of folks so if you were to have just one ...

    Too many people own Vetiver... I don't really like that smell either. It is a good scent but I would choose 212. That is subjective because I've been wanting to buy it. I say smell both side by side and pick for yourself.

    Not the best choices, no offense... 212 is so-so, Vetiver makes me puke, so I guess 212 by default...

    No offense taken. What would you recommend for the warmer weather? (Something fresh but not floral).

    Me, too. To be fair, I don't remember 212 for sure. But I love Vetiver and wear it often.

    Both scents, 212 Men and GV, are the representatives of the chypre family, however, 212 is one of the most synthetic scent and Vetiver is one of the most natural scent I know.
    My choice would be Vetiver, of course.

    To stick with your question, because you've tried the two and like them both:

    I personally love Guerlain Vetiver, if you have the maturity to give into it. But to me it's a cold and dry scent. Fall/Winter.

    Therefore, for spring, 212. It is very springlike to me. Metallic, grassy, fresh.

    Living in a climate with hot summers, once the weather warms, Vetiver doesn't suit. 212 cuts through the warmth like a spring breeze.

    And, as for the other recommendations such as Clinique Happy, unless you're under 25, please clog your ears.

    Hey! Well... then again, I am under 25, by 5 years lol. Clinique Happy is one of the last designer scents that I own, I've pretty much sold the rest and bought their niche counterparts. For a budget spring scent, it's very refreshing! I'll go ahead and sorta agree with you egoscentrick, I'd say under 30...
    --------------------------------------
    212 is being considered here, so I naturally assumed under 30, under 25 even lol. Guerlain Vetiver screams 'old man', at least to my nose.
