    Default Your favorite vetiver?

    I'm a total vetiver freak, it's my favorite note and I'm crazy about vetiver-heavy things and vetiver soliflores. I'm really curious to see which vetiver-centered frags you guys prefer these days.
    I cannot just pick one and have to split my own vote - it goes to smoky classy Sycomore and fierce rooty Route du Vétiver. But which vetiver frag is your favorite? Vetiver is vast territory - maybe I didn't even list it?

    Voted Givenchy Vetyver and Other (for Bois 1920's Vetiver Ambrato).

    I now realise i like vetiver in two ways: Straight-up sometimes, and as a main note with other dominant notes other times. the Givenchy was my first vetiver ever and favourite straight-up vet.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    My favourite isn't there - Original Vetiver. Bright, crisp, clean, sharp, fresh. Not in the least bit earthy or stanky. Very wearable.

    There's no way I could pick from that list...my most recent acquisition Turtle Vetiver Front certainly ranks up there is a big way, as does MdO Vetyver...but then there's Dior's which is super nice and one that brought about my love for vetiver in general. Vetiver Tonka...Sycomore...ugh

    It's probably a tie between Turtle and Vetyver though.

    So would you say Sycomore is particularly feminine? What notes are responsible for Chanel marketing as a feminine fragrance?

    If you have ever smelled Sycomore you would not make that assertion. Sycomore is " marketed " to women however this is in no way a femminine scent by any means!
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    That's a great list. I love several of them, but when push came to shove, I had to go with Lorenzo Villoresi.

    From this list: the ones by Guerlain and Etro, further faves of mine not listed here: Creed OV, Chpard Noble Vetiver, Lanvin Vetiver, cheapie evergreen Vetiver Carven, plus the discontinued Eau de Vetiver by Yves Rocher and... the vetiver notes in Mugler Cologne.

    Creed's Original Vetiver then Creed's 1948 Vetiver in that order...I just ordered a sample of Mona D'Orio Vetiver frag and am hoping I will enjoy that one too...
