    Default Grey Vetiver, Lubin Vetiver or Kenzo Boisee

    How would you rank these 3 frags in the order of your preference and why:

    Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford, Lubin Vetiver by Lubin and Kenzo Homme Eau de Toilette Boisee by Kenzo.

    I am thinking about buying only one of these frags but still can't decide which one is better in terms of sophistication, compliment-getting, longevity and projection...

    There are better Vets than Ford and Lubin. I'm not a Kenzo fan at all, but I get quite a few compliments on Boisee and that's with me rarely wearing it.

    I have GV and KB. I would say GV is the most sophisticated and projects well for the first hour or so before quieting down. Quite 'sophisticated' also. Have to say though that I prefer KB. It's just a bit different, though does not project that well.

    I, too, only have GV and KB and would choose GV as I absolute love the scent...it just does not last as long as I would like. However, KB is a nice scent that I wear and enjoy on more casual days.

    I don't know the Kenzo. Between GV and LB, I prefer LB, which is fresher and more vetiver-rich to me.

    Only Lubin Vetiver or Kenzo Boisee worth considering IMO.

    I only tried kenzo boisee and I think it's ridiculously devoid of any character. Worst frag with the name kenzo on it as far as I'm concerned. People will know that you are wearing something, but that's about it.

    Rather derogative description of Kenzo Boisee. Olivier Polge, the perfumer behind this creation, will be disappointed

    Haha, that's the only one I've smelled. It's a very solid vetiver.
