    While the Vetiver is quite transparent and it comes off as more of a bergamot tea (Earl Grey) driven composition, Coeur de Vetiver Sacré by Amouage is an oft overlooked masterpiece that should fit the bill nicely.

    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)

    If you don't like TdH, Sycomore might not be your cup of tea either, but I do think it's a beautifully crafted vetiver and sandalwood scent. Very woody, dry and great just about any time of the year.

    Another one that is very good is Route de Vetiver by MPeG. Very slick and smooth dry down. Not keen on the berries in the opening myself but you may like it. Very imaginative and totally worth the price tag.

    Both you can wear anytime and do not smell like other vetivers.

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Acqua di Parma: Colonia Leather
    - Mancera: Cedrat Boise
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Revillon: R
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Ferrari: Essence Oud
    - Knize Ten
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Aqua Fahrenheit

    Le Labo Vetiver 46 is a beautiful, smoky vetiver. Not vetiver prominent though.

    Also these are worth a look.

    Guerlain Vetiver
    D&G Velvet Vetiver
    Ramon Monegal Umbra
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    Escentric Molecules - Escentric 03

    I love vetiver however, so I think almost all vetiver fragrances are stylish. But these are pretty versatile and office safe.

    Today have been in TKMaxx tried two unusual bottles - one was Cedar, another - Vetiver - 100 ml for just £15 pounds. I wonder why I didn't buy. Cedar that I sprayed on my arm keep opening up - better and better, beautiful wood and amber, I guess with Vetiver would be same story
    One of those things - you see the box and bottle and you know something nice in it...
    I might go back and get it(
    Also was written the name - Pierre-forgot-surname(

    French one((

    Dior Vetiver is my absolute favorite, if you can find a bottle. It's been discontinued as of recent, however, some people say the boutiques have limited bottles. Turtle Vetiver BACK is the only thing that comes close to Dior Vetiver for me, it's a straight forward vetvier that's coupled with violet, mimose and musk. Turtle Vetiver BACK smells like you're seaside in the tropics wandering near jungle vegitation. Awesome stuff.

    L'artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu is a nice vetiver that's coupled with incense and a resinous berry vibe.

    Chanel Sycomore is more of a smoky vetiver with aldehydes on top, similar to Lalique Encre Noir, minus the ink notes and super rich in nature. Which also brings up the fact that Encre Noir is a good option...dark vetiver coupled with ink and tons of ISO-E.

    I think this is going to be missed by many Basenoters once it's in fact gone. A great one.

    Dior Vetiver- without question is my favorite as well. So much so that I wear it sparingly.
    Guerlain- the current EDT is decent if you like classic vibe, soapy vetiver. The vintage EDC is another animal completely. Its the EDT but with a dose of awesomeness and a touchy of dirty added in, and some soapiness removed. Hit me up if you want a sample of it.

    Sycomore and Encre Noir- very popular and smoky but not my cup of tea.

    Diptyque's Vetyverio is bright, clean, fresh, with a citrus top note. It's very wearable.

    Dior's Eau Sauvage EDP and Malle's Vetiver Extroadinaire(hard to beat even though you have it already.)

    Red Vetyer by Montale is very stylish in it's own right.

    ^^ This. If you want a *different* take you might also give a chance to Oliver & Co Vetiverus,

    Also check:

    Nu_Be Oxygen (abstract, incensey and avant-garde but *very* easy to wear)

    I'm throwing Vetiver Fatal by Atelier Cologne into the mix.

    I just picked up a bottle and it's a very fresh, mildly sweet, smooth vetiver mixed with plum. Gorgeous stuff IMO.
