    From a woman's perspective, I would much rather smell Vetiver than Habit Rouge on a man!

    Lately, if I pick it it's guaranteed to lose... So it looks like it will be a Vetiver / Sultan finale!

    Vetiver, definitely, even though I respect both greatly.

    In the last round I voted for No 88 because Guerlain Vetiver is impossible to wear for me. Now I vote for Vetiver because Habit Rouge makes me physically ill. And I used this in my teens...Huh!

    edit: somewhere I do understand they are both great but just not for me. And Vetiver is a little more wearable...

    I find HR to be much more wearable for me, despite that they are both excellent frags.

    HR all the waaay!

    Two great frags, but one had to choose.

    never smelled habit rouge, but voting for uncertainty is better for me than voting for vomitous coriander

    Impossible for me to choose. Can't vote. They are both awesome. With a gun to my head I'd say Vetiver though. I NEVER tire of it.

    Habit Rouge for me!

    This was a toughie.

    I've voted for both these in previous rounds.

    My decision was decided on which fragrance I can wear anytime without having necessarily to have to be in the right mood to wear it.

    I love both immensely but in the end the most consistent performer for me by a cigarette paper's width was...




    .... Vetiver.

    Guerlain Vetiver is staging a comeback!

    After wearing HR EDP all day...I must say, for anyone who has a hard time deciding, choose HR. The EDP smells to me like it has vetiver in it, so both your cravings can be satisfied

    I used to own both but only HR remains, it has my preference...

    Habit Rouge looks like it is through to the final.
