    Default Recommend something like Montale red vetyver

    Hi all,

    i received a sample of Montale's red vetyver and i liked it, except it seemed slightly "sharp" or harsh at the opening. Sorry I can't find a better way to describe this. Anyways, I was hoping to have 1 or 2 recommendations (beside Terre d'Hermes, i have that) on a similar kind of fragrance, thanks!

    Try Guerlain L'Homme L'Eau Boisée, it has a very similar vibe, but it's much smoother, no sharp notes.

    Normal thoughts are Terre de Hermes Parfum which seems like a carbon copy and doesn't seem to be as edgy.

    Terre d'Hermes has a similar vibe.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    To a nose that is as bad as mine, TDH and Red Vetyver are pretty much the same

    thanks ill try that.

    i agree with the many who have stated that Terre de Hermes is similar somewhat, and i just wanted to see whether there are any other scents that give similar vibes.

    Yep, Terre d'Hermes EDP is pretty much spot on

    Guys, he is looking for recommendations *other than* TdH as he already owns it. Ten points to JiveHippo for reading the whole paragraph.
