    I disagree....well after the first hour.

    RV gets creamier and the citrus less sharp.

    I REALLY wanted to like TdH more as it was cheaper when I was getting ready to buy my full bottle, but longevity was not nearly as good, and I just preferred the drydown of RV more.

    Never say never but I see RV as always having a place in my wardrobe.
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    Creativity is more than just being different. Anybody can plan weird; that's easy. What's hard is to be as simple as Bach. Making the simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.

    If you compare Terre d'Hermes Eau de Parfum VS Red Vetiver (it's an Eau de Parfum) You will pay slightly higher for Terre d'Hermes Eau de Parfum (about 130$). Red Vetiver directly from Paris is under 125$ and you get a free 20mL travel bottle of your choice plus free shipping. So do the maths...

    I forgot to say a thing; Terre d'Hermès Pure Parfum is 75mL not 100mL like Red Vetiver. So you gain 25% with the Montale choice.

    p.s. Terre d'Hermès Eau de Toilette don't match the power of Red Vetiver.

    It's VERY VERY risky to buy Creed on eBay. Many false there. I hope you got the real one
