    Default Vetiver fragrances ( easy to find ) similar to Guerlain H. Boisee and Sel de Vetiver, rcmdtions.

    Im looking for something similar to Guerlain Homme Boisee or D.Company Sel de Vetiver.
    Not neccesary the classic or famous vetiver fragrances with Vetiver name and vetiver is dominant note as,
    Vetiver Extraordinaire , Encre Noir but noticiable and pleasant.

    I have Guerlain Vetiver, Adolfo Dominguez Vetiver Hombre, Prada Vetiver, Carven Vetiver, a decant of Profumo Vetiver de Java Osmo and my next
    purchase is Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.

    I dont try Dior Eau Savage Parfum but notes sounds nice ! Bergamot, Myrrh, Vetiver but unfortunately is not available
    here in Tokyo.

    ideas, recommendations ...not hard to find fragrances.

    Perhaps Bois Naufrage by Parfumerie Generale. Has similar vibe.

    Etro makes a nice smokey, earthy vetiver. One of the most wearable is Givenchy's Vetiver. It's not "challenging," per se, but it is quite nice.

    One that combines both leather and Vetiver well is Hermes Bel Ami Vetiver. It's not a vetiver-centered fragrance, but the Vetiver note plays an integral role in this scent's supporting cast. The nice thing about this one is that it's much different from all the fragrances you'd named. I personally really enjoy it and reach for it often.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    Piver Vetiver is a very under the radar fragrance worth trying.

    Tuaer's Vetiver Dance although it's quite strong on vetiver. Reminds me of rainforest.

    Carven does some nice vetivers old and new. Vetiver dry is my favourite from this line. It's more aromatic and herbal.

    + 1 this! My SOTD, great stuff. Also Prada Infusion de Vetiver (from the new Infusions collection / 2015). It's great and the vetiver note is bright as in Sel de Vetiver.

    X2 Encre Noire Sport and Infusion De Vetiver. The second is a very clean soapy vetiver.

    I don't get any vetiver in Eau Sauvage Parfum. Very musty smelling. One of the few frags I own and do not like very much.

    Grey Vetiver EDP is my go to vetiver. An all season scent.

    Love the Piver -- hate the Tauer -- the Carven is a great 'bang for the buck' vetiver

    Le Vetiver by Lubin is gorgeous and sexy imo

    Annick Goutal Vetiver Cologne (the new one) is very nice in a light, citrusy, salty way, not a million miles from SdV. Shouldn't be hard to get hold of and it's not expensive.

    Most of these may not pass this "easy access" part, but excellent citrus vetivers are worth the extra effort:

    Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier - Racine / A citrus vetiver, bright like a neon light at night. Tender dry down of Javanese and Haitian vetiver with sandalwood and musk.
    Hermes - Terre d'Hermes EDT / Vetiver is moonlighting here, good for those days where you're wanting a more mellow vetiver with a mineral spring and citrus spash.
    Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver EDP / Easily accessable sharp grapefruit and smoky Java vetiver.
    Parfums de Marly - Byerley / This one is more smooth and slightly sweet, but has the nice smoky dry vetiver with a fuzzy smoothness from benzoin like resins.

    If I had to pick one of those 4 to go after based on your post it would be Racine.

    Good luck!

    Yes bal d'afrique is built around vetiver but has many other notes which compare somewhat to Guerlain Homme Boisee which the original post was asking for similar fragrances. I like bal d'afrique a lot. This is the Luckyscent blurb about its ingredients: " At center stage is the ever-bewitching vetiver, earthy and spicy, and smoothed with sweet amber and warm musk until it becomes velvety and almost edible."

    Thanks for the info. I will revisit this for sure....as u rightly pointed out ...it's a fantastic scent irrespective ....something about it makes me come back to it again & again but I never bothered to look at the notes details so thanks for digging it out for me....will look for it as soon as I reach home in some time later today

    Among the many great suggestions, let me tell you which one will NOT work - Eau Sauvage Parfum.

    NOT a vetiver fragrance.

    Since you're in Tokyo and although I know it doesn't get a lot of love around here, there is a nice subtle vetiver hidden in the basenotes of CDG's Amazingreen:



    I think many expected too much of this fragrance, I think it's quite easy to wear, can be worn for most occasions and it has a few interesting notes in there that are subtle when many expected it to be more bombastic or out-there especially coming from CDG.
