    Default Armani Privé Vétiver Babylone

    Can someone tell me what the vetiver in this smells like upon drydown. I am having a little bit of difficulty as the lemon creaminess is skewing my assessment a bit for me. IOW can someone provide me with another vetiver that is very similar (MPG Route du Vetiver being very different from Grey Vetiver e.g.)

    It's been a while but the couple of times I tried it I thought of Original Vetiver - in other words a very pleasant, bright scent but with not much vetiver to speak of - if at all. I like OV, by the way, but I wasn't too impressed with VB. Those were my thoughts back then - best I can do

    This wears better on my skin than OV by Creed..... They are alike for sure.....VB last longer..... Another Vetiver that comes to mind is Mugler Cologne..... On my skin VB and Mugler Cologne are very much alike..... VB lasts longer than MC..... When I first wear any of these, my Wife will always ask what I'm wearing..... She knows Mugler's Cologne and makes the connection..... She does like VB the best also.....Gary

    Any more thoughts on this one?
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    It reminds me of Carlo Corinto Vetyver.

    Its vetiver smells like Paul Smith Story. Sadly discontinued, Story is much better than this one. Vetiver Babylon is nice but boring, ended up selling my bottle after using up about 10 ml.

    I use to love PS Story and miss it.. It was linear and reminded me somewhat of Pert shampoo.
