    Guerlain Vetiver deserves the esteem in which it is held. However GV and I have never been comfortable bedfellows therefore GIT gets my vote by virtue of the fact that we always get along famously. Havana takes Group A.

    I find Guerlain's Vetiver nauseating and GIT is an equally classic fragarance - the one Creed that is genuinely historically important, in fact, for pioneering a new fragrance style. Go, GIT. Not a fan of Havana myself, but I respect it and expect it to win hands down.

    Hmm. While I respect GIT, I don't actually like it and I do enjoy G-Vet -so its got to be that. And havana over TF Grey V every time.

    Guerlain Vetiver in any concentration/incarnation rocks GIT's puny little world. But I know I am perhaps in the minority in this opinion and they are both great, classic frags--a real horse race.

    Vetiver is a shadow of its former self, mainly due to a drastic decrease in quality of materials (the tobacco note is even more off-putting than ever). GITs soft iris-green violet accord is still one of the best rendered in the industry. But Vetiver is older and has more fans and would win this one.

    Havana vs Grey Vetiver..i like GV more and can't stand Havanas toxic mixture of notes, but once again Havana has more fans.

    Vetiver and Havana go through.

    I voted Gray Vetiver. It was the worst experience of a fragrance ever. Thick as aspic, utterly dead, doomed as a tiger in the cage.

    I agree, AND I firmly believe GIT to be more culturally important and even a bigger classic than GV.

    The champ (GV) is content to do just enough with his erstwhile challenger, while saving his strength and power for his inevitable run much deeper into the tournament!

    Even though I voted for Guerlain Vetiver, I thin we need a Creed to go a bit further and GIT is the only one that could. Hence, go GIT! It is merely 7 votes behind now, so who knows.

    Wow, sure looks like it, GV had it more than doubled when I left this afternoon. Still a bit too late to pull off the shocker upset.

    Guerlain Vetiver is such an overrated fragrance it's ridiculous. There are so many better interpretations of vetiver but that's brand name loyalty for ya right there.
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.
