Wow, that's a big turnaround! What changed?
Speaking of vetivers, I tried Le Labo Vetiver 46 at the Le Labo counter at Saks (Houston) the other day. I wasn't a big fan at first, but throughout the day I found myself enjoying it more and more. It's strongly masculine, with a smoky, somewhat rough feel, but it's also nicely rounded out with some ambery notes. I won't be buying a whole bottle, but I could imagine getting a decant at some point.
EDIT: I applied some 1932 again this morning, and I'm not finding the opening quite as bitter as I did last time. There's a sweetness at the top that I'd missed when I wore it yesterday. Still find it quite soapy and aldehydic, reminiscent at least a little bit of the opening of Chanel No. 5.
