Thread: Your favorite vetiver?
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

Gotta go with Dior's Vetiver as a clear #1, too bad it's now discontinued. LesNez Turtle Vetiver Back is a close second for me, wish I had a sniff of Front and Exercise 1 before production ceased.
✔️chanel Sycomore here!!!!😜

My favorite is probably Encre Noire, followed by Grey Vetiver and the classic Guerlain. Didn't care much for the Malle.
Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young,
How come I'm never able to identify where it's coming from,
I'd make a candle out of it if I ever found it,
Try to sell it, never sell out of it, I'd probably only sell one

By season, these are my choices:
Autumn: L'Occitane Eau du Vetyver
Winter:Maître Parfumeur et Gantier Route du Vétiver
Spring: Carolina Herrera Sensual Vetiver
Summer: Guerlain Vetiver
Of course, this is South Florida, so I pretty much do whatever I want
Eau de Vetyver de Givenchy. where any discussion about male fragrances starts and ends.
I voted for Encre Noir and Vetiver Extraordinaire, but there are many great ones on that list!
Ah... so many vetivers... so little time. For me it's Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver. And while Guerlain's
Vetiver is a stone-cold classic I don't find it as wearable to TF's. I've always viewed Grey Vetiver as a
modern take on the classic by Guerlain. For a dark smokey vetiver I really dig Sycomore and
Encre Noire. I would love to sample Dior's version. I also adore Creed's Original Vetiver but
don't consider it a vetiver-centric scent since the note sits in the back but it's still such an
amazing clean and green soapy scent.

I can't tell EN and VE apart so I'll say EN.
Voted Sycomore. People say it smells like Encre Noir, but I'd rather have Sycomore.
Vetiver Extraordinaire is very nice too. I should also mention that Vetiver Tonka caught my eye in the Hermes Boutique, it's a different take on vetiver. It's good!

To me Sycomore is so similar yet so much better than Encre Noire. I am surprised, given this, that EN gets so many votes.
