OK so I have a friend that recently discovered my bottle of VE in my wardrobe and has fallen head over heels for it. However he refuses to buy a bottle at such a high and price and he keeps using mine! What is a cheaper smell alike I can buy him? He's a very close friend but I'm not about to drop $140 on him lol
Lalique' s ENCRE NOIRE, the best vetiver out there and also my favorite
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

You know despite being a vetiver lover and trying countless suggestions I've received from this board I have yet to try Encre Noir, so I'll definitely have to check it out and maybe buy a bottle for my friend so he stops using my expensive VE! lol What stores could I go to to pick up a free sample or just try it out?
Try Vetiver Extreme by Guerlain
Ok, Encre Noire might be an obvious one. But Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford is the closest thing to VE I've found. Not very cheap though.
