    Default Dior Vetiver or Tom Ford Grey Vetiver

    I'm looking for a nice springtime vetiver, and was eyeing these 2 fragrances. So, any opinions? Thanks.

    Grey Vetiver is a modern update to Gurlains old vetiver and is fresh and clean. Diors Vetiver must have passed me by as I have never seen one available locally.

    You're gona end up with both!
    Grey Vetiver is an EDP with power sillage - a modern take on vetiver.
    Dior is simply a "classic" in my book.

    Both top notch in my book, you can't go wrong with either. The TF is cheaper, of course.

    I agree, you'll probably end up with both. I prefer Dior Vetiver most of the time, but TF GV's bitter-bright citrus is excellent on hot days.

    Both great. The Tom Ford is perhaps fresher, more direct, the Dior is halfway between fresh and rooty.

    The Dior is in the private collection, so it is only sold at Dior's boutiques.

    I consider the Dior to be a true vetiver. A soliroot so to speak. A rich rooty vetiver supported by willing notes.

    Grey Vetiver is a modern eclectic take on vetiver. Smoky and grapefruit notes with a very synthetic (good quality) vetiver.

    I enjoy both but prefer the Dior.

    I have both, like both and recommend them. They are different. I personally like the scent of Dior a little better - it reminds me of what I think of as natural green vetiver scent. You just have to pick.

    BUT on the other hand, Tom Ford gets more frequent use by me! The bottle is definitely much easier to handle. Those huge Dior bottles are very unwieldy and hard to accommodate. Tom Ford Grey Vetiver has a nice clean tartness with a very dry finish - kind of like a vetiver martini with a twist of lemon peel- extra dry

    I would go with Grey Vetiver. It really is a straightforward, crisp, clean scent that means business.

    Grey Vetiver was not to my personal taste for similar reasons Guerlain's Vetiver (that it frequently is compared to) isn't. It was super fresh, and when I tried it on skin in Vegas this week on day two of my sampling binge there, I just felt it lacked any type of character. I could see it as very versatile and I can't imagine anyone being offended by it, but in my case I kind of thought "why bother wearing anything if it means something *this* fresh and subtle?" I prefer raw and distinctive vetiver scents, and Grey Vetiver is just not my thing, I guess.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driů) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Dior Vetiver. I love the way the coffee plays out with the vetiver, making it less sharper than TF's Vetiver.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Dior, no doubts for me. Just wondering...why your choice is restricted to these two?

    I'm pretty new to Vetivers, and the notes in the Dior, mainly the coffee and grapefruit sounds really pleasing to me. The Tom Ford, well I have other Tom Ford's and I know they're quality to my nose at least. I guess I'm just going with what I know.

    That's perfectly fine but be aware that there are a lot more (and overall better IMO) at any price. Maybe you could go for a sample haul and then decide which one to get...(just a friendly suggestion)

    I went ahead with the Dior. Just received it today, very nice. I like the grapefruit top a lot, and the coffee in the background is very nice. Though with 4.25 oz being the smallest size available I have more than I know what to do with. Thanks for the help guys!

    Dior Vetiver is much smoother and will most prolly be my 2nd purchase after Bois D'argent.
