    Default How many bottles of Gueralin Vetiver (or flankers) do you own?

    The thought just occurred to me that I have a bunch of these bottles (5) but rarely wear them! Perhaps this is a good indicator of how much of an aficionado you are. LOL.

    I have only one. For some reasons, I and GV just don't get along.

    I own Exteme and I'm getting through that gradually. I also owned the original but have sold it.

    Just one, the mid-90's ribbed bottle. I honestly never took-to the vintage or any other iteration of this fragrance.

    Guerlain Vetiver was one of the first bottles I bought when I got heavily into fragrances. I bought it blindly because of all its fans on here.

    I returned it ASAP and learned not to buy fragrances blindly.

    I have 2 of the ribbed bottles, +1 more ribbed, almost empty. I have previously finished off a gold-capped bottle that smelled great. I still feel the juice in the ribbed bottles is very nice, though.

    Same here, actually! My splash is an 'after shave', though.

    Also have 4 or 5 Vetiver Pour Elle Bee Bottles - decant for summer trips but I'm slowing down on usage now it's discontinued.

    Not that much of a vetiver lover here, at least in its straight form.
    I much more enjoy Vetiver Extreme and own a bottle, so 1.

    Just one at the moment, a recent-ish (2012?) 100ml silver cap bottle of GV.
    Will likely pick up a bottle of Vetiver Extreme at some point.

    Two.. early 2000s GV, recent GV Extreme. Would love to try the discontinued Sport version.

    And the ribbed bottles are so classy. The newer bottles just don't compare

    I have one, mostly for reference. While I like it, then elements I like the most can be found in other Guerlains, and I usually prefer my vetivers to be a bit more on the minimalistic side of things.

    I have the original EDT from 20 years ago, and an EDC splash bottle from that period.
    Curiously, while the EDC is weaker in output than the EDT, it lasts about twice as long as the EDT on my skin.

    And I have a bottle of the next EDT version which came along - which smelled a bit greener than my earlier EDT bottle, and which lasted longer than it did.

    I wore the original EDT about a week ago.
    Regards,
    Renato

    The ribbed bottle is not mid 90's but 2000-2010. Before 2000 there was the Habit Rouge shaped bottle with golden cap.
