Thread: CdG Vettiveru 2

  1. #1

    Default CdG Vettiveru 2

    Has anyone tried this yet? How does it compare to the original? Better / worse? Stronger? Longer lasting? Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    Very interested to hear about this. Might check out the CDG boutiques when I’m back in Japan in a month or so.
    When I looked towards the end of last year the entire cologne series had disappeared from the boutiques.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Report back after you get to the boutique.

    I recently saw it listed on Luckyscent.com. I liked the old formula when I had it, but it was very light and disappeared off my skin quickly. Per the site, it is a more concentrated formula. Curious to hear reviews from those who have tested it out.

    Agree. Love the old formula, but still have half a bottle, so it will be interesting to see how it has changed. Last I looked only Vettiveru was getting the update.

    What!? They made a new Vettiveru? I have to try this. I doubt I’ll get it though, I still have almost half a liter left in my huge bottle

    Yes. It is on Luckyscent.com. Not much info though. Would love to hear some real world feedback on this one. Though, it is tempting to just order it...

    It's a reformulated version of the original apparently -- so not really a flanker

    More concentrated sounds good -- I used to use about 25ml for a single spraying when I wore it before

    LOL. I love sousing myself in it, especially in hot weather, although I find about 5 sprays will give me EdT like performance and longevity, so I’m not sure I need or want it to be any stronger.

    Ditto, a handful of sprays gives me more than adequate performance.

    Need to remember to request this from Luckyscent as a free sample with my next purchase. Sounds interesting.

    I just bought a secondhand bottle of Vettiveru but (shame!) I don't know if it's the original or the re-release. I will check and follow up. Whichever it was, it was excellent and surprisingly lasted all day. I'd only sampled from a dabber vial before, years ago, and was impressed based on that. Giving it a full wear was even more impressive.

    Hoping it's the re-release! I good reintroduction is always welcome news.

    [Edit: Mine's in a glass bottle, 125ml, and if the original was in fact only in plastic and the new one is only glass, that means it's new one. I see from the Luckyscent pic that the new one isn't actually labelled "Vettiveru 2," so that may be the answer.]

    The old 500mL bottles were made of glass, and I believe the small bottles were as well.

    Hmmm. Is the cap the difference? In many pictures online, the 125 ml bottles have a black cap. In the Vettiveru 2 pic from Luckyscent and on my bottle, it's a black sprayer with a clear cap.

    Also, it seems that my version lasting all day is a point toward it being the newer one. I didn't realize increased longevity was a goal of the rerelease, per Kilgoret above.

    I get solid performance from the old EdC, so I can’t help you in that regard, it just murkens the water even more.
    The cap is probably the difference, it definitely had a black cap before. Or maybe there were both clear and black it seems?

    Alright, for future clarity let's call it unless further information comes to light: Assuming mine is the re-release, which I am until further notice, it's great and lasted all day!

    So happy this wonderful fresh vetiver is available once again!

    Good to hear, especially for lovers of vetiver, affordable quality scents, the ones that got poor performance from the old one, and for you of course

    It looks like I'm mistaken. There was something very basic about the original 125ml bottle which explained the cheapness - was about £25-30 I think. Maybe it was just the concentration of the juice.
    I hope Vettiveru 2 retains it's soapiness and doesn't veer towards 'green and clean'

    I would say both of those attributes apply, but I thought the same about the original. I wish I still had that sample of the original to compare!

    My 125 ml bottle is glass and has a clear cap and black sprayer. There’s the possibility that Luckyscent is using a picture of the old bottle.

    This seems to show the new bottle using the name Vettiveru 2

    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.

    I also picked up a 10 ml size of Mon Vetiver by Essential Parfums. I have not seen any reviews of that one yet. Sounds interesting. I just hope I did not make 2 mistakes. At least shipping was free.

    Well, the package just came in the mail. Due to the polar vortex- it is freezing cold but in tact.

    I put a few drops on my wrist (did not come with a separate sprayer attachment like the old bottle) and I have to say, it is very similar to the old formula.

    Luckyscentís revised description appears accurate. It seems a bit richer, denser and stronger. Vetiver is a bit darker and more prominent. Itís comes across as less white floral than the old version to my nose.

    All in all, I think it smells great. Looking forward to wearing this one all year.

    Side note- I have been itching to get a bottle of Malleís Vetiver, and Vettiveru may have fulfilled the want and saved me some cash! Iíll have to see how it performs after a few wears.

    Thanks to everyone who weighed in / participated in this thread.

    Sounds nice, although more EdT than EDC in style. I liked the florals and the effect of spraying myself with copious amounts in really hot weather. I’ll still check it out if I can find it in store.
