    Default Help regarding current and older Guerlian Vetiver

    Hello all,

    I've been reading about Guerlian Vetiver, and there are many people on here who regard it quite highly. I've been looking on eBay, and there seem to be three different bottle designs of the EDT. I have three links below, and I'm just wondering if anyone out there can help me, by telling me the qualities of each. I know the last link is the current formulation.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I have a 100ml that looks like the second link. Don't know about the others but the one I have is wonderful.

    Make sure you have the option to return the item to the seller on ebay. A lot of funny business going on when it comes to frags.

    I have the 50 ml in the second link and the smell is great and I can't tell much of a difference between that bottle and what I used to wear - I have a 30 ml bottle which is in a completely different shape which had Eau de Cologne on it rather than Eau de Toilette. There may be subtle differences in the strength or longevity but if you have not used the vintage previously, I wouldn't worry too much about the current formulation. I haven't come across the one in the thrid link and Guerlain used to have different shape bottles in the 30 ml bottles in the past as well. I also have another version in a square bottle with ribbed lines frosted across the bottle and I don't detect much of a difference as well. A earthy and woody scent with a great citrus top note - very easy to wear. Don't know which vetivers you have tried but there are many different types of vetiver scents out there to explore as well.

    All are great and masterfully made

    I own the current version of the Guerlain Vetiver Extreme which as it's name implies has better longevity and sillage and I love it!
