I like Vetiver Extreme much more than Guerlain's original Vetiver because it does not contain the tobacco note of the original. I'm not a smoker and find the tobacco note to be off-putting. In my opinion, Extreme is a beautiful expression of what vetiver should smell like.

This is essentially Guerlain's Vetiver, with the tobacco notes removed and a flinty, fresh-mineral light note of incense added. The base is mostly that metallic incense, which isn't among the better incense accords I've tried. The opening and mid-phases are quite nice, when the vetiver and other green notes are still perceptible, with the incense in the background. Sillage was close but consistent on my skin, and duration was reasonable at over five hours; in fact, it is stronger and lasts longer than the original (which is too faint, at least in its current formulation).

Vetiver Extreme is more of an incense than a vetiver; and, there are better vetivers, or incense fragrances out there, not to mention vetiver+incense combos such as Timbuktu or Dzongkha. Vetiver Extreme is perhaps worth a try for anyone looking for a simpler, straightforward vetiver and incense perfume, and doesn't have high expectations.

Probably the last Guerlain I'll try. Smells OK at first, but smells like B.O. after about the 5th-6th hour.

Creed Original Vetiver was definitely better, but without the longevity and sillage.

Masculine fougere fragrance from the house of Guerlain.

Smoky and dry vetiver fragrance with good longevity.

Thumbs up!

A beautiful, fresh vetiver. But a flanker that's considerably more rounded and soft than Guerlain's Vetiver. The citrus in Extreme is toned down a lot, and the incense note certainly softens it and gives a creamier feel. There's still a fair amount of soapy fizz to this mind. Yes, a bottle-green bar of soap would be a fitting mental picture here (lime green or yellow for it's sister Vetiver). I love them both, but this gentler, less astringent one edges it for me.

Starts off with strong citrus and herbs. As the vetiver enters the picture, so do the woods and spices. In some ways this is as much a wood fragrance as a vetiver fragrance. I think it's a good scent for those who don't like the "pot" smell of the original vetiver. In a lot of ways this is the most wearable vetiver, next to Zegna's Haitian Vetiver. Both fragrances recommended for those who don't like the worst elements of vetiver.
