I wore this on Valentine's Day (for no special reason though). For a first-time wear i liked it so much that i reapplied when i got home from work (unsual). Vetiver is a prominent player in this frag but it honestly cannot be categorised as a vet frag along the same vein as the heavy hitters. Creed's Original Vetiver and Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver can be described as raw and brutal compared with Noble Vetiver. If i were to compare it with any other frag, it would be the new edition Lanvin Vetiver, though NV smells much better IMO.
Sillage is "office-friendly" by Western standards, but for me i wish it were much more powerful. Longevity is quite respectable though.
Is NV groundbreaking? Certainly not. It is however a good vetiver frag "for those who do not really like vetiver" and when one wnats some vetiver but is not really in the mood for the Guerlain, MPG, F Malle kind of vetiver.
