Just tried Nuit de Megeve and yes, the opening reminds me of Vetiver Tonka and it dries down to Bal d'Afrique.

I got very inspired by Mythrol's thread HERE who decided to review a lower amount of frags, but do an in-depth work on each one. I will try to make an Google Sheet and post a link, including approximate pricing, and I will give access to the commenters here to edit it, before locking it, so it can be used as a reference every time one asks "what is the best vetiver frag..."

I think we could do that for each major note. For the tobacco one, I would strongly suggest that Brooks Otterlake takes the lead on that, given its expertise in that field :)
Brooooooksss? Do you hear meeeee? ;)
I second the nomination, both of the note to survey and the BN member to oversee it.

... .. and here are some Vetivers with photos that are worth mentioning:






... and once my favorites, unfortunately no longer in production, but sometimes still available from online retailers:
(... and sorry, both are not in Basenotes Directory!)

I know Vetiver de Java and thought it was terrible.
I owned the Absolu concentration. It lasted FOR-EV-ER.

Bortnikoff Vetiver Nocturne the original version. Knocked my socks off when I first tried it and it still does

Any other take on Vetiver d'Hiver from Armani Prive, aside from price?

I own Vetiver Babylone (before the name changed to d'Hiver) and it's probably one of the most versatile fragrances you can own. A slightly sweet vetiver that is leaning towards powdery rather than grassy (but not too much so), and with an opening that revokes citrus peel rather than the tart juice. It wears well in both formal and casual settings, and across all seasons.

It lasts for ages, but it is subdued and soft, similar to D&G The One EdT. If you want something stronger then this isn't one for you.

As for the Murdock, I'd invite you to post a full review, as there is little opinions shared on that one. Looking forward to hear your thoughts!
I wore Murdock Vetiver yesterday as part of my survey of Murdock samples. The first two, Avalon and Black Tea, were quite pleasant due to what I perceived as quality ingredients, but they were not particularly exciting compositions, and they did not excel at either longevity or projection. So, wearable day scents that won’t interfere too much with a switch to something more interesting in the evening.

Murdock Vetiver is a somewhat different story. For one thing, it’s more of a performer: decent longevity and great projection. Also, I found it a more interesting blend than the lemony citrus of Avalon and the spiced tea of Black Tea. This Vetiver isn’t strictly vetiver. Rather, it moves from an opening citrus to a blend of vetiver, herbs, and patchouli. I still found the vetiver to be the star, while my wife felt it was too far in the background. Perhaps that’s because she doesn’t care for the spices as much as I do. In any case, I was rather taken with Murdock Vetiver. It’s the first Murdock I’ve tested that seemed worth $100+ a bottle.

My only caveat, aside from the ensemble-player nature of the vetiver, is that it’s fairly linear once it gets past the initial citrus-to-herbal transition. If you like the way it smells after 20 minutes, then that’s a plus. But if you’re looking for a fragrance with an arc, you might tire of this one.

Being a huge vetiver fan, I am starting a comprehensive thread to inventory and discuss under-the-radar vetiver-centered frags that are currently available to buy (retailers or ebay). Please no discontinued/historical fragrances. In order to avoid endless discussion on the usual suspects, I'll clear them immediately, so we can focus on the more "stealth" frags. let's go:

- Guerlain Vetiver - dark green with tobacco (my first vetiver, and still my favourite)
- Guerlain Vetiver Extreme - dark green with incense
- Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisee - fresh light green
- Lalique Encre Noire - Earthy black, black, and black
- Lalique Encre Noire a' l'Extreme - Grey/brown, very similar to Chanel Sycomore
- Lalique Encre Noire Sport - Fresh black with a drop of white, with a pleasant subtle lavender twist
- Carven Le Vetiver (white bottle with grey woody cap) - light green with florals , quite complex and a little old school. I love.
- Carven Vetiver (green bottle with silver cap) - one of the few I hate. nose irritating sharp citrus. Unbalanced.
- Dunhill Icon - more a neroli-centered fragrance, but in which the vetiver is quite strong supporting note in the heart/base
- Franck Olivier Black Touch - Dracula's powdery (very) synthetic take on Encre Noire + Terre d'Hermes
- Givenchy Vetyver - classy mid-tone green/grey, hazelnut feeling. Drydown similar to Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire.
- Mugler Cologne - soapy light green (actually, does not contain vetiver oil at all, but the floral/musky accord tricks the nose in an impression of vetiver leaf, and the results is very similar to Creed Original Vetiver)
- ELdO Fat Electrician - sweet brown with a hint of dark green (this one is 80% sweet creamy chestnuts supported by some vetiver, not the opposite)
- L'Artisan Parfumeur Timbuktu - smoky grey/green
- Hermes Terre d'Hermes - orange/green
- Hermes Terre d'Hermes Eau Intense Vetiver - metallic green/grey
- Hermes Terre d'Hermes Parfum - asphalt/orange/hint of green (more formal and better projecting version of the original)
- Dior Eau Sauvage - you know it, no need to talk about it
- Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum - great fragrance, the 2012 version's opening being a little more full bodied than the 2017's, but the drydowns are identical
- Dior Eau Sauvage Cologne - an adapted version of the original, fitting more the current tastes, with improved performance
- Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EDP - a sharper Guerlain Vetiver. A little overpriced imo
- Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EDT - very similar to the previous one, thinner and less interesting though. Discontinued.
- Hermes Bel-Ami Vetiver - sharp green opening, brown red drydown
- Creed Original Vetiver - light airy green in the sun. Creed uses all parts of the plant (both roots and leaves), but it's often considered a reference in the "vetiver leaf" category, that only a few houses did. Mugler Cologne is similar to this one, in "lower definition".
- Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait - pure perfection, but overpriced
- F.Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire - hay-ish, yellow/brown, not identical to, but similar to Etro Vetiver, Givenchy Vetiver and even shares some similarities with Guerlain Vetiver Extreme. Very overhyped and overpriced imo.
- Chanel Sycomore - the top is 80% Encre Noire Sport, the heart is a 95% Encre Noire a' l'Extreme, the base is 80% Encre Noire a' l'Extreme +20% Lutens Vetiver Oriental.
- Dior Vetiver - a great one. Shares some vibes with the cheaper Elie Saab Vetiver n.6. In that high price range, I'd opt for Sycomore tbh.

Since we're done with those, let's start the interesting part. I'll throw a few here that are much less discussed in forums, and that I own or that I previously tested: (feel free to rediscuss them later)

- Tiziana Terenzi Ursa - a leather-centered fragrance, that has a strong vetiver support in the base
- Gucci Guilty Absolute - very similar to the previous one
- By Kilian Dark Lord - very similar to the 2 previous ones
- Elie Saab Essence n.6 Vetiver - classy, perfectly tailored green, slightly powdery
- Etro Vetiver - earthy green/brown, with a roasted chestnut note, but no creamy sweetness like ELdO Fat Electrician
- Montale Red Vetyver - metallic green/black, similar to TdH Eau Intense Vetiver
- Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental - beautiful sparkling green/orange with a sweet background (not unlike Timbuktu)
- D&G Velvet Vetiver - light purple. Very luxurious feeling, but a sweet fig is the main player here, vetiver is just a supporting note
- Monsillage Pays Dogon - superb light green with orange/pink background, a masterpiece
- E.Zegna Haitian Vetiver - It's the high-quality version of Guerlain's Vetiver, with a carrot seed twist
- Le Labo Vetiver 46 - yellowish/brown, an hay-ish vetiver. A masterpiece, but very pricey
- CdG 2 Man - very similar to the previous one and cheaper... what else?
- CdG Vettiveru 2 - very nice earthy vetiver kept fresh by citrus. Below average performance (it's and EDC), but honestly priced
- James Heeley Vetiver Veritas - the reference in the earthy/rooty vetivers dept imo, and the purest vetiver around
- Diptyque Vetiveryo EDP - a beautiful earthy-rooty vetiver, a little smoother than Heeley's, and an added subtle rose that fits very well imo
- Diptyque Vetiveryo EDT - not as interesting as the EDP, and all Diptyque's EDTs suffer of performance issues
- Jovoy Private Label - the king, beautifully supported by patchouli. Bold, powerful, masterful. My love.
- Jovoy Incident Diplomatique - a great great one too. My preference goes to the previous one though.
- Robert Piguet Bois Bleu - similar to Guerlain's, with a noticeable supporting violet that gives a great twist. A very green/blue impression, the name is spot on!
- Lush Smuggler's Soul - earthy vetiver with a nice sandalwood twist
- Lush Breathe of God - fruity vetiver, it's a mix of two oils previously released by the house (Inhale and Exhale)
- Verduu Matthew Miller - wow. My runner-up to Jovoy Private Label. A great earthy soily vetiver
- Mark Buxton Emotional Drop (fka Emotional Rescue) - the perfect version of Diptyque Vetiveryo, with an iris twist. Masterful!
- Mark Buxton Devil in Disguise - really great, smoother than the previous one, with a beautiful rhubarb support.
- Aedes de Venustas (original) - the alter ego to the previous one: rhubarb with vetiver support. Very nice.
- Escentric Molecules Escentric 03 - great fresh gingery vetiver fragrance. Sparkling. On my to-buy list
- Escentric Molecules Molecule 03 - pure (or nearly pure) vetiveryl acetate. very bitter. To be layered with the previous one to increase the body, but not so great by itself.
- Escentric Molecules Kinski - a rounder, greener and more complex version of Escentric 03, with rose, blackcurrant and castoreum support
- Lubin Le Vetiver - with support of frankincense. It has not left me a lifelong memory
- Andy Tauer Vetiver Dance - I now own a full bottle. Unique, but a love or hate kind of fragrance. A love for me.
- Vilhelm Smoke Show - very similar to AC Emeraude Agar, with a noticeable vetiver/incense twist in the base. Not really vetiver centered thouh.
- Lorenzo Villoresi Theseus - beautiful grassy vetiver with a celery twist, beautiful.
- Armani Prive Vetiver d'Hiver (fka Vetiver Babylone) - nice clean take on vetiver, but very soft and overpriced for what it is
- LT Piver Vetiver - thin and old school. Good in that category
- Fragonard Vetiver - same as the previous one
- TdC Sel de Vetiver - changed my mind completely... this one is simply stunning, salty, crystal clear, fizzy, unique
- Prada Infusion de Vetiver - very light and soapy. Smells of clean
- Yves Rocher Cuir Vetiver - low performance, and pretty common
- Atelier Cologne Vetiver Fatal - light vetiver with fruit support, unisex leaning feminine
- Byredo Bal d'Afrique - similar to the the previous one, but fully feminine
- Hermes Vetiver Tonka - nice take on vetiver, with tonka support and a hint of booze also.
- Eight&Bob Nuit de Megeve - similar to the previous one, but low performance
- De Nicolai Vetyver - very clean on vetiver. Too clean maybe? Not sure, but overpriced for sure.
- Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vetyver Haiti EDP - a very nice earthy vetiver surprise that I may put my hands on when it gets discounted
- Mizensir Mythique Vetyver - I had high expectations for Morillas' line. Disappointed.
- Roger & Gallet L'Homme Vetyver - thin orange with supporting vetiver, old-schoolish
- Montale Vetiver Patchouli: tried it but no clear memories... will retry
- Paul Emilien Vetiver Indien: nice citrusy dominant vetiver. Clean and subtle.
- Murdock Vetiver - green mossy vetiver with patchouli support. Not groundbreaking, but still, very nice.
- L'Artisan Parfumeur Dzongkha - meditative incense/vetiver masterpiece
- Lalique Hommage a l'Homme Voyageur - top of bergamot, then heart of patch/cardamom/vanilla trio with stong vetiver support, and then a vetiver/payrus duo takes the lead in the base. Great value, but misses the masterpiece grade just by an inch.
- Ormonde Jayne Zizan - sparkling vetiver with rooty (but not dirty) base, a high-end take on Escentric 03. Stunning.
- Miller Harris Vetiver Insolent - opens very resinous, and drydown to a dark earthy vetiver. What Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum 2017 should have been. In my top 5.
- Bruno Fazzolari Lampblack - clean, dry smoke (styrax), not really vetiver-centered. Quite thin. Will please people looking for a minimalist fragrance, disappointing at that price point in my book.
- Bruno Fazzolari Vetiverissimo - straightforward high quality vetiver, middle of the road between freshness and darkness. Good, but nothing new here.
- Bois 1920 Vetiver Ambrato - amber forward with vetiver support. More an oriental than a vetiver frag. Was expecting more tbh
- Creed Vetiver Geranium - mostly geranium. Good, but I prefer Malle's take on the theme (Geranium pour Monsieur), if forced to choose. Actually a pass for me on both.
- Oliver & Co. Vetiverus - clove-forward fragrance with support of orange and a subtle vetiver. Not sure what to think of this one... a piece of art, or totally unbalanced?
- Floraiku My Love has color of Night - a fantastic woody/resinous frag with a dark earthy vetiver in the base. Very high quality but not unique, and its price is simply outrageous.
- Masque Milano Hemingway - top notch metallic vetiver with rhubarb, reminding of gunpowder, cold leather base. In the same ball park as Malle's VE and Heeley VV (both in terms of quality... and price unfortunately). Etro Vetiver is a great cheaper alternative to all of these listed!
- Cartier Declaration Essence - the tea/vetiver take on the original, with a toned-downed cardamom. Very very nice, especially given its price.
- Byblos September Morn - L'Essence de Cerruti / Dunhill Icon Elite with a vetiver twist. Nice but not groundbreaking, and below average performance (very cheap though)
- Jo Malone Vetiver & Golden Vanilla - very nice nutty vetiver with vanilla base
- MPG Route du Vetiver - a dark, damp, earthy, unapologetic take on vetiver, for hardcore vetiver fans only
- Annick Goutal Vetiver (vintage, still some decants available) - a stunning sunny vetiver
- Rogue Le Canotier - fruity/sweet light vetiver. Not a fan, but many are, and I respect the art
- Nishane Sultan Vetiver - starts grassy and damp with a strong note of anise (and dried fruits/sage possibly?), closes rootier (but never eathy or dirty). Superb!
- Mona Di Orio Vetyver - vetiver with noticeable nutmeg, ginger, and cedar. A high end, crystal clear, "cripsy" take on Etro Vetiver. Stunning (but not cheap)

Some others I heard about, but never tried. I'd love to hear some feedback (please add a descriptive line when commenting on them, or I'll update based on your comments):

- Miller Harris Fleurs de Sel - aromatic and salty
- Karl Lagerfeld Bois de Vetiver
- Pascal Morabito Bois & Vetiver

Feel free to express your opinions, but please focus on the descriptive part, and possibly compare them to other ones.

Thank you in advance! 1...2...3...gooo!

PS: special thank you to moon-fish's for his very useful thread HERE and to Mythrol for his reference thread on vetiver HERE, which helped me a lot choose my vetiver frags, and tailor this list.

This list is amazing... this is why I love this board!
Fantastic reference and sharing of knowledge.

Just purchased Sel de Vetiver and VE.

Agree! What a great thread. I own Sel de Vetiver and Guerlain Vetiver. Considering Vetiver Oriental (I want my next vetiver on the sweet side). This is a wonderful reference list which I am cutting and pasting into a word document so I can easily find it. Thank you!!!

Awesome list... so many vetiver fragrances.

In my quest for a couple in my collection, I settled on the following vetiver fragrances.

Vetiver Extraordinaire
Sel de Vetiver

Such great knowledge and experience shared by all... Thank you!

Hi all, great resource.

I'm looking for something like Terre d'Hermes Eau Intense Vétiver without the (persistent) orange in the topnotes and mid: any recommendations?

Obviously, the scratchy norlimbanol doesn't bother me. I'm looking for a woody vetiver that is:
—not sweet/ambery
—not musky/powdery/soapy
—not floral (esp. violet/lavender)
—some smoke or patchouli is ok, but I’m after intense and austere vetiver + woods as predominant notes

I have and enjoy:
EN (inky vetiver-cypress is great, but looking for less buzzy, more woody scent),
EN à l'Extreme (very nice, mostly vetiver-patchouli with some cedar, will probably pick up a full bottle),
Lalique Equus (nice vetiver-cedar but honeyed beeswax in the drydown is a bit sweet),
Wonderoud (nice woods but not enough vetiver),
Vettiveru (great, fresh citrusy vetiver but no woods).

I find Sycomore and TdH too powdery. I've tried classic vetivers such as Etro, Givenchy, Guerlain, Goutal, MPG Route. Jovoy Private Label is excellent but primarily patchouli with some vetiver. Woody Perfecto has a pleasant bergamot-tangerine and light vetiver opening that fades to minimal sandalwood-cedar scent in ~1.5 hrs.

I'm thinking next candidates are:
Pierre Guillaume (formerly Huitième Art) Monsieur
Montale Red Vetyver

Any other suggestions? TIA!

Really appreciate the research and work that went into that extensive list, but your thoughts on GUERLAIN VETIVER sort of sum it up for me.

I've tried more than a few and nothing unseats GUERLAIN.

MALLE VETIVER EXTRAORDINAIRE is different enough that I also like it, but still....

I really appreciate you stopping-by here, and thank you for the compliment. I'd rather keep it as a listing here, and not a suggestion thread. I suggest you copy-paste your post and create a new thread, that may be more helpful to you. Thanks!
