    If you're up for a strictly masculine targeted fragrance, I would say Derby but most Guerlains are perfectly unisex.

    Guerlain Vetiver, for me anyway.

    I'd say Guerlain Vetiver (never smelled Derby)
    +1 on above, having never smelled derby either. i might add that the vintage vetiver is far superior to the current, watered down formulation.

    I agree, for me they are actually tied with Guerlain Vetiver.
    I own both in vintage formula and the edp lasts 24+ hrs! Amazing stuff!

    It entirely depends on your tastes.

    Myself, I love civetous perfumes, so Mouchoir de Monsieur is my favourite.

    I have not had the pleasure of smelling Derby,so, I would have to choose Habit Rouge EDC vintage or Jicky for it's fantastic drydown.

    Mouchoir De Monsieur might just have the edge in terms of scent but I will go for Heritage for also having magnificent staying power and drydown. ( I haven't tried Derby though..)
