    Though not much praise so far (in it's small time it has been out), I do enjoy Comme des Garcons Play Green.

    Vetivera Herbacea by Berdoues. Sold as a feminine but absolutely unisex.



    Vetiver Pour Elle is divine, too. Getting harder to find, tho.

    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme

    I would suggest Villoresi Yerbamate, although it has many more notes than just citrus and vetiver.

    Yeh, this one gets my vote. Stock up now if you like it.

    PS The Dior Vetiver is also pretty nice for hot weather.

    There are about a zillion. The Givenchy Vetyver is a nice one.

    Racine is One of my all star top five. But somehow I wear it in the fall, not summer. Many votes for Freds. I remember trying it when it came out but felt that it was a pricey version of Mugler Cologne. A lot of basenoters felt the same then but maybe time and trend shifted in favor of soapy, floral vetivers.

    Sel de Vetiver by Different Company - Upon application, one is treated to a refreshing mixture of tangy grapefruit commingling with the mild spiciness of cardamon. A vetiver undercurrent imparts its reedy and grassy facets, and carries the almost airy opening to its metamorphic heart. Here, parsley-like liveche imparts its celery-like and faintly anise facets and interplays with the cardamon to foster a medicinal and salty illusion, while geranium add its lemony and slightly peppery, herbaceous quality. And, a creamy floralcy from ylang-ylang flutters about the fragrant, rooty and woody aspects of a pronounced vetiver. Transitioning to the comforting base, iris with its violet-like and powdery character interplays with a musty, yet peppery, earthiness from patchouli. Salicylates impart a faint odor of sunbathing lotion, while the smoky aspect of the vetiver now comes into its own. A mellow drydown ensues. This somewhat light composition have average projection and longevity.

    Love to wear Sel de Vetiver in the summer! Its perfect. I think Guerlain's Leau Boisee is nice too.

    Sel de Vetiver (mineralic and soapy), CdG Vettiveru (citrus-incense), Givenchy Vetyver (classic), and Original Vetiver (soapy/modern) in that order.

    In the summer you need to go with Tom Ford Grey Vetiver from what you've listed, but if you're looking for citrus, make sure you check out Jo Malone Vetyver Cologne. It is Grey Vetiver, but with a citrus twist.
