    Default Thierry Mugler Cologne vs. Original Vetiver

    I know they are both very similar and some say one is better than the other despite the price difference and house, but i'm curious as to which you like better and realistically what is the main difference you sense between the two?

    I suggest you also try Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver Hombre which should be cheaper than MC (but doesn't last as long). The top notes of OV reminded me more of VH than MC.

    I will look into it, thanks. However it is the drydown of OV that I really enjoy. The soapy clean smell is awesome!

    Hednic what is the major difference? I have maybe 1.4 or 1.5 oz. left from my 4.0 of OV so I need to buy a new one and am considering the TMC or the aforementioned Vetiver Hombre.

    A little while back, I did a side-by-side wearing to compare these two, with one on each arm. I wrote all the details herehttp://www.basenotes.net/threads/238...ay-November-09.

    I hope it helps.

    I ended up liking OV better.

    Wait a minute, the "S note" in MC is SEMEN? W-H-A-T?! That's a joke, right?

    Once, when I had both in my wardrobe I realized, I was always choosing Mugler Cologne over OV. Hence I sold my bottle of OV.
    Mugler Cologne is perhaps the liveliest cologne I own. It just perks me up on those dreary days. OV is more woody, particularly the
    drydown and as a result of that ambergris, it does make it a bit depressing to me.

    You wouldn't happen to have a link would you? I found a user named Dimitri, but he had no blog entries.

    They are quite different, at least to my nose, if compared to each other, both both have, at least after me doing some sampling, very good longevity and both are very classy, contemporary yet understated elegant frags

    Both scents are extremely similar, but I like OV better because it is more complex and evolves more than MC. MC is good, but very linear.

    They feel different enough to me. Mugler Cologne sparkles and projects better but is a touch synthetic to my nose compared to the smoother Original Vetiver. They are both easily wearable to me but in a head-to-head OV has the upper hand, quality-wise and suits my preferred style. But if I'm after a little more projection and longevity, I'd go with MC.
