    Default Guerlain Vetiver 4.2 OZ for $29...Good Deal?

    I bought this at Marshall today...found it in the clearance section in the women's section... $29 for a 4.2 OZ bottle... good deal?

    I sniff this one a few times on a card at Sephora, but never on myself...

    Ok, I just sprayed 2 spray on each of my neck...let is sit for a minute or so and then took a wiff...smells very green and grassy... similar to Encre Noire, but not dark and inky...it's more green and fresh...somewhat citrus....i think this one will work great in the summer time on a cooler day... very fresh...i'll give it an initial grade in a few hours...

    It's been about half an hr now and I no longer get the citrus note...the fresh bright green scent is also gone...now I smell just vetiver and a woody base in the background...I think there is also ISO Super E in this one...so far it's nice....

    Guerlain Vetiver is one of my Favorites! That's one helluva deal and I would have thought I'd died and gone to heaven if I'd found that. Gee, I need to go to Marshall's more often!

    I visit Marshall once a month or so to see if they got anything new in...also it seems like the Guerlain is always in the clearance section...I got a large bottle of Habit Rouge EDT a few weeks ago for $29 too...

    Give it some time.

    I came close to selling mine that I bought in winter. Just didn't like anything about it.

    Then one warm day and I suddenly got it. Wonderful scent

    Good deal! I got Vetiver fairly recently myself, and although I almost sold it at first (weird repulsive note to me first time I tried it), I was encouraged by fellow basenoters to stick with it for aosme time and have now come to love it. It's a classic, and even if you don't find it wearable, I believe you'll find it a good collection piece to get a good mak on other scents. It's certainly expanded my horizons a little bit

    wow, nice score. I've seen them on ebya for like $45 best case, so good job. and give it a few wearings before deciding. if you don't like it, it'll be easy to move on the B&S.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    It's s staple in the American diet of perfumery. And for good reason too.
    I personally prefer my tobacco and vetiver more in tense.

    No Tobacco???

    This version is infamous for its tobacco note among many basenoters...which I like a lot.....

    On me..it is usually a dry cut grass...with some tobacco smoke....I don't get it all the time...It is like Terre d'Hermes....You are totally unaware that it is there and suddenly you get a whiff of that dry green vetiver with tobacco.....and what to say...just Love it....

    That whiff always gives me feel as a rich person...or something extra ordinary....or Very Special.

    I'm not getting any tobacco with this Vetiver...I'm going to give it a few more wear to see if I can get the tobacco you're talking about....

    I get the tobacco from Guerlain...but definitely not from Terre d'Hermes.

    Great deal IF you like the juice. I don't care for GV's drydown so...

    Definitely yes! The going rate on Guerlain Vetiver is usually costlier, so it truly was a good deal

    That was mere correlation saying Terre d'Hermes has this quality such as you don't think its there and suddenly you can get a whiff of mineralic/orangy/vetiver note and that gives a charisma to it.....

    In my personal experience wearing Guerlain Vetiver, many times I think its not there....and suddenly from somewhere I get this tobacco+dry vetiver sharp smell...which I makes me feel good-feel special.

    I was comparing that quality...not the dry down.

    I hope this cleared your confusion.
