    Amen to that, I love Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver. Clean, fresh and real vetiver. I also like Red Vetiver, a little kinky and man it last at least 12 hrs on me.

    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.

    I've sniffed:
    -Encre Noire
    -Guerlain Vetiver
    -Vetiver Extraordinaire
    -Grey Vetiver

    My favorite is probably Encre Noire, followed by Grey Vetiver and the classic Guerlain. Didn't care much for the Malle.

    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

    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.

    Hermes Vetiver Tonka

    Waiting on LesNez Vetiver Turtle Front to arrive.
    I don't get much if any vetiver out of Sel Marin. It's mainly salty lemon citrus with seaweed to me!

    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.
