    Default Tom Ford Grey Vetiver vs. CREED Original Vetiver

    I'm curious as to which you think is better?

    Like both of them but OV way more as the citrus aspect just comes alive more on your skin in the heat and projects really well.

    looks like the 2 choices are a battle of equals ... one a C+ and the other a C- ... reluctantly will choose Grey Vetiver ... mediocrity rules ...

    Have not tried OV but Jack likes it so I probably will too. But I am a big Grey Vetiver fan.

    CREED Original Vetiver by far IMO.

    Both are nice....I bought OV over GV though. I plan on adding GV soon. I decided to get Black Orchid first instead.

    I don't see these as having much in common. It's hard to even compare them.

    TF Grey Vetiver gives me a headache, and Creed OV doesn't smell much like vetiver to me.

    I'd go with Encre Noire, Sycomore, or CDG Vettiveru instead, or Guerlain Vetiver if you want to stick with a more "traditional" take on vetiver.

    Went for Original Vetiver myself. Bought both from a fellow BN'er (oh hi, Oslo_Fjord) and just found more at ease with Original Vetiver myself. Gray is something quite else in my book. A fantastic frag, just not for me at the current time (and my girlfriend by far preferes the soapy cleanliness from O.V).

    I love Grey Vetiver. I can make my own OV from the water drained off the boiled potatoes, and at a fraction of the cost!

    Grey Vetiver is the only vetiver that I would wear.

    Hilarious. +1 for TFGV.

    Got both, and like them both.
    But between them I go with CREED.

    Have sampled both. My nose is not highly trained, but I think in a way that is a good thing. Creed is more citrus and fresh. Could picture wearing it on a hot summer day. The Tom Ford is not musky, but to me smells more rich and manly. Probably more formal. Seems like it would make a great work scent

    I own and love both. But when reaching for a vetiver, I generally do not even consider OV. I view that as a more clean, soapy scent (one that I love). Grey Vetiver is truer to form, reminding of Guerlain Vetiver. As such, will have to abstain from a vote.

    Grey Vetiver. OV starts out great but gets irritating after awhile.

    Both great but i enjoyed the creed a little bit more

    My vote is for OV. IMO, it's bottle worthy. It projects well too.

    GV is nice, but a bit too chalky for me.

    I like GV, but Creed OV is one of the few Creed frags I LOVE.

    Have samples of both and plan on getting full bottles of each in the near future, if I had to chose I would probably go with OV

    This is about right. They're both shooting blanks.
