    Default Creed Original Vetiver vs. Chanel Sycomore

    I'm considering one of the following for my next purchase and have heard nothing but great reviews for both, thus making my decision even tougher.

    Out of the 2, which do you prefer and why?

    Thanks!

    I love them both and own both but I prefer Creed Original Vetiver as it wears better on my skin.

    Sycomore by about 60 trillion miles... It's one of my absolute favorite vetivers, while OV seriously underwhelmed me and smelled just boring and generic...

    Chanel Sycomore - because everything about it is infinitely better than Original Vetiver.

    I much prefer Sycomore. It's a bit more complex and i simply like it more.

    Creed is garbage compared to Sycamore.

    Garbage? Rather harsh!

    OV is a fantastic fragrance. I have both as part of my collection, and enjoy both of them equally. Really depends on my mood which I will wear.

    OV - because everything about it is infinitely better than Sycomore. Or not ... sigh.

    They're both great, truth be told. Sycamore is harder to wear, weirder and could garner you less compliments. They're not even remotely the same fragrance anyways, so why not get one and chill out and wait - then get the other one?

    They're both excellent. You can't go wrong with either of them.

    Interesting question, as I've only just sampled the two of them pretty recently - and I think they're both very good indeed (I have a bottle of OV on order).

    To me, OV is greener and fresher, and Sycomore is more "rooty vetiver" and woody, if that makes sense - they are very different.

    LOL


    Close one for me. I would side with Sycomore having better quality fragrance.

    Chanel Vetiver, of course. Creed Vetiver to me is a big waste of money.
