    Guerlain Vetiver would probably not make it to the top spot, but would actually manage to be in an honorable top 3 or top 5

    Reason: while definitely NOT the smokiest vetiver fragrance around, it does have a slight tobacco leaf drydown, reminding much more of dried and unsmoked pipe tobacco or ciger tobacco, also including some suggestion of tobacco/tobacco mix with vanillic and herbal touches

    I haven't tried Sycomore yet (shamefully), so I have to say that my absolute favorite smoky vetiver is by far Profumum Fumidus. Then it's Etro Vetiver, Villoresi Vetiver, and Encre Noire.

  18. #18

    Sycomore is the best I've tried so far.

    I'll add Givenchy Vetyver. To me it's beautiful and wonderfully smoky.

    Sycomore is the absolute best.

    Encre Noire is good for the price.

    "Smoky vetiver" makes me think Sycomore and Timbuktu.

    Am I the only one who gets almost zero sillage from Sycomore? It smells great but it just kind of sits there on my skin. I'm going to try my sample again.

    I've smelled alot of good ones; the smokiest vetiver by far is fumidus.

    i agree with this man, givenchy vetyver (i've only tried the vintage) is super smoky.

    Chanel Sycomore. I just bought vintage Givenchy Eau de Vetyver, and while it is a wonderfully rich vetiver fragrance, it does not have the smokey prominence of Sycomore.

    Sycomore has a lot of sandalwood which definitely takes it out of the one-note vetiver category, even though it's amazing. I like Encre Noir for a really pure (not particularly smoky) vetiver.

    For smokey vetiver it is pretty hard to top Encre Noire by Lalique.
    Villoresi Vetiver is up there too.

    The newest reformulation of Sycomore is not smoky at all, I have a small decent from 2009, and it smells like burning woods, the 2012 bottle I bought, is very sandalwood heavy. Does anyone know of a good smoky vetiver besides EN and the old Sycomore formulation.

    I'm on board the smoky Sycomore train..woohoo! But as for smoke in general, I find Fumerie Turque from SL hard to beat. Smells like the inside of the smokehouses along Chemin Royale, Ile d'Orleans, here in Quebec (minus the fishiness, of course). They smoke river caught sturgeon as well as whitefish, trout, and salmon, using hard maplewood and sweet fruit woods. Fumerie Turque does have a cherrylike accent that puts some folks off though.
