    Talking Guerlain Vetiver vs Green Irish Tweed [Gonna make a purchase in an hour]

    I like citrus and floral tones.

    Is GIT worth the extra.

    Yes GIT is wonderful and a classic for good reason and would be my recommendation. I find Guerlain Vetiver to be unpleasent and dated though Tom Fords Grey Vetiver is a good modern interpretation on Guerlains offering.

    The violet note in GIT is very nice, but that's all that's good about it to my nose. Guerlain's legendary offering is good for what it is - a scent from the 1960s. It is outdated and has too much tobacco for my liking. I would vote for GIT but only because it's the best of a bad bunch!

    GV isn't floral. You can try LaCoste's Challenge (aftershave formulation) for strong citrus and violet/lavender, if you want to save some money. GIT isn't especially citrusy, at least beyond the top notes.

    Guerlain's Vetiver is a great scent and a must have. Make sure you enjoy vetiver though. Never tried GIT.

    Yes, GIT is the better option. Especially since Guerlain Vetiver is a shadow of its former self.

    I like both but vote for Guerlain Vetiver, a timeless classic. But I expect you made your purchase by now!

    If the citrus and the floral tones are the main point, I'd say Vetiver has, at a lower price, even a richer variety of tones and notes (this being said, GIT is still an outstanding fragrances, however, not so heavy on these notes, as GV is).

    Guerlain's Vetivert was the best Vetivert ever. It has been reformulated and is no longer the same.

    GIT by a mile, even for the money. I never have liked GV and think it is much less wearable.
