    1. OV (pretty darn special)
    2. STH (close second, and one of the only fragrances to ever garner unsolicited compliments from strangers for me)
    3. Ciel (not a fan)

    Straight to Heaven would be my pick of the 3. Original Vetiver is really nice also, but would be a clear second choice. Ciel Man wouldn't finish in the top 50 if you added about 50 more fragrances to the list.

    6. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven

    Original Vetiver would be my pick, by a pretty good margin.

    Straight to Heaven and Ciel aren't anywhere near the top of the booze and floral games, respectively.

    To be fair, Original Vetiver isn't at the top of the vetiver heap, but it is an excellent and very pleasant soapy/green/smooth scent, which is misnamed.

    For versatility it's hard to beat OV

    I would try:
    Straight to Heaven Splash of Lemon. It's a bit more versatile and, at least to my nose, infinitely more appealing than the original

    Dia Man Interesting Vetiver and Peony combo that is very wearable and super refined. A love....for me at least

    Of the three, my favorite is Original Vetiver. It's perfect for this time of year and extremely versatile.

    My vote for Straight to heaven, but more because I dislike the others. Ciel feels a little too sporty, especially given that it's an Amouage, and Original Vetiver too soapy. (Perfume critic Luca Turin gives praise to Ciel saying that there is an interesting dirty note in it - but nothing of the sort to my nose, whether it's reformulation or what).

    I think Mega Mav secretly loves Creed's Original Vetiver but thinks he must not give Creed too much praise due to their prices.

    I have not smelled Amouge Ciel. So I am effectively disqualified from giving an opinion. There is a stark difference between Creed Original Vetiver and Kilian's Straight to Heaven. If you like woods, then Straight to Heaven is very nice. If you want a sweet vetiver fragrance that appeals to more noses, then Original Vetiver. I prefer the new flanker Straight to Heaven "Extreme" over the standard version. Original Vetiver is more versatile. STH is classy, elegant and sophisticated. I don't own STH extreme yet, have tested samples of STH and smelled both head to head more than once at Saks. I wouldn't likely wear STH in the summer, but would rock it in the winter over Original Vetiver.

    Tough because they're all very different.

    I've never really cared for anything from Kilian and Ciel didn't work on my skin. Truth be told I did enjoy Ciel on paper though...

    With that said, Creed OV would be my choice.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
