I don't think either is "better" than the other, just different. Definitely sample, but you may very well enjoy it. It's a much darker scent and having both (as I do) makes a lot of sense for when you want an ebullient, citrusy vetiver (Guerlain) or when you want a brooding, earthy vetiver (Lalique). I am running low on both of my bottles and I was wondering if I should just replace one or look for something new. Chanel Sycomore is the only other vetiver I've sampled that I think I like as much or better, but I could even see having all three in a wardrobe as not being repetitive. At half the price of the Chanel to get replacements of both bottles, I think that option is best for me, but keep sampling and see if one really grabs a hold of you.
