    Mike, have you tried ELdO's Delicious Closet Queen? Violets, iris and rose over Haitian vetiver.

    As I`m wearing Vetiver by Adolfo Dominguez today, I feel like it is flowery (jasmine + LOTV) vetiver.

    Would Modoc by Xerjoff qualify as a vetiver/floral scent?

    I would definitely consider this a vetiver floral. The Haitain veritver in this mixes with the artemisia, Florentine iris, orange flowers giving a woody floral scent.

    I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned Timbuktu by L'Artisan. It's all about floral vetiver. The floral note is refreshingly abstract (does anybody know what karo karounde smells like, anyway?), but the overall effect is lovely, if a bit on the formal side. It's one of my favorites.

    I do.

    The closest thing I've smelled to karo karounde in an easily accesible fragrance is the dirty-floral notes in Tabu's heart. Karo karounde has sort of a creamy-dirty floral smell smell with a weird, slightly mustardy edge. It might be in Timbuktu, but it's overshadowed by the spicy mango accord to my nose ( Timbuktu is quite nice, though, it just doesn't last on my skin ).

    I too was surprised that Timbuktu hadn't been mentioned.

    I am not sure what Karo Karuonde smells like but its definitely floral with vetiver and incense.
    for swap/sale:

    Majmua 96, vetiver blended with 2 flowers in it, screwpine and kadam flower.
    Timbuktu is excellent too.

    I already like Timbuktu, but I really don't think of it as a vetiver/floral scent, rather to me it's an exotic incense scent.

    Smells like vinegar to me.

    How about 28 La Pausa? Sort of a tidy vetiver with iris & florals. More on-point - Me, Myself & I by Ego Facto.

    28 La Pausa is nice, but it's SO iris prominent on my skin the vetiver is sort of pushed to the back. Sort of the reverse of No. 19 EdP.

    That Ego Facto has been on my To Test list for a while now. I remember Octavian calling it 'extremely original'. Will try!
