I've never smelled a real life Vetiver plant, and I'm fully aware that vetiver is in a ton of frags.
But 2 frags that i simply can not stand are Creed Original Vetiver and Encre Noire. Both of these have this bizarre almost sweet smell, that hits me right in the back of the throat. I'm assuming its the Vetiver in them.
It really nauseates me. Its a real shame for Encre Noire, because i really like where they were going with it. I can detect some other very interesting subtleties that are very nice. But the overpowering Vetiver kills it.
