    Grey Vetiver is very classy and clean. Even though it is very different, Sycomore is the ultimate vetiver by far.

    +1 for the TFGV, but the OV don't suck.

    has a poll ever been this close? amazing!


    for what it's worth, i own and love both of these fragrances. I wear the CREED when i want to have that ultra-clean fresh feel. less dressy and very casual. i wear the Tom Ford when I want a little more attitude and swagger along with the traditional clean vetiver vibe. more dressed up style.

    drydown on the Creed is much better.

    longevity on the TF is much better.

    i'll keep and continue to enjoy the heck out of both. :-)

    Weird comparison because I don't really think of OV as a vetiver scent, I just like the scent better than a majority of anything I've tried before. Which includes Grey Vetiver - however, if we're strictly talking which rendition of vetiver do I like better, it's Grey Vetiver.

    I own both.
    My fav is the OV.

    I find GV to be a much cleaner vetiver than Creed's offering. To me OV is a softer, more muddled scent with less of the crisp, soapy green that I appreciate in a vetiver. Tom Ford wins this one.

    If you are looking for a true vetiver scent, Sycomore is the best there is. Period.

    But between these two, I would choose Original Vetiver. Nothing original about it but a nice clean, soapy smell that is superb in the summer. Definitely vetiver in there but a lot more going on with bergamot & ginger in the top notes and various woody notes in the base. As with most Tom Fords, this one is powdery, cloying and something in there that just doesn't balance out well. I know many do like it as it's a take on a classic but I just can't give it the vote.

    I like both, but I would have to side with Grey Vetiver, something about the top notes when first sprayed always makes me go back for more...

    I am not a fan of Grey Vetiver at all, something about it irritates me thoroughly. I have not smelled Original Vetiver, but my top vetiver choices would be Sycomore and Vetiver Extraordinaire, which are both five star fragrances to me.

    Creed OV is a fresher more casual fragrance, TFGV is more formal and serious.

    Got them both - love them both!

    Grey Vetiver is more traditional vetiver, and Creed is just different. I like them both quite a bit, but I will go with Tom Ford because it's more traditional and represents vetiver better.

    How odd. I don't think Grey Vetiver is very traditional. It's much fresher, lighter and more modern than Creed's to me.

    GV smells better in the bottle, but OV smells better on the skin. GV can be cloying if too many sprays are applied.

    OV for me...It's truly a beautiful fragrance...I can smell everynote listed in the dry down. Is versatile as all get out and shines in the hot weather...TF GV not a versatile and more traditional to me...IMHO...

    Original Vetiver has really taken off for me... I like it a lot more than I used to. It's moving it's way up toward Sycomore and Vetiver Tonka. I really like all of my vetiver scents a lot more than before...must be growing on me.

    Has to be one of the closest polls ever... And I would have expected OV to landslide it. I like both, but prefer OV.

    Grey Vetiver by a country mile.

    One of the best spring/summer scents for men ever IMO and one of my personal favourite scents of all time.

    Having got both OV and GV recently, i should say GV works better for me. OV is all soapy whereas GV is clean and crisp, how a vetiver should be.

    OV. GV smells like a phoney/ nauseating aroma chemical.

    Grey Vetiver has better skeletal structure and amazing longevity and Duhhh, cost less: GV is my pick A no brainer!
