So something more like Encre Noir or maybe Sycomore is more in line. Ford's is a cleaned up Guerlain's, both of which are rather citrusy and fresh, though the tobacco (especially in the Guerlain) gives it a little dirt, but they're both rather liquidy and sparkly. Something like L'artisan's Couer de Vetiver Sacre has elements of what you want, though I find it rather fruity and jammy too, so it's not quite right. MPG's Route de Vetiver might get close to what you want, though I find it's rather oily and sticky and pungent, so it's not as dry but it does have that assertive sharpness of Malles, so that's probably the one I'd recommend after Encre Noir, which personally I think will be the closest version I can think of. I don't have a strong memory for the Villoresi one above but I think it might be in the same veins. I'd stick to niche and 'natural' etc. Also check out Turtle front/back.

Basically you want raw/grainy earthy dry vetiver, nothing fresh or citrus, all cool and earth, etc

If you've tried it, how would you describe Heely's Vetiver Veritas compared to the ones you describe here?

I ordered from h. lorenzo in LA. Baby & co in seattle carries a little bit. Really hard to find, i tried the whole range in berlin thinking i could find it elsewhere, only to get back to the states and realize its impossible to find. Their candles, diffusers, packaging, complete lack of marketing, everything really is exactly what I look for in a house. Highly recommended.

SOTD is CB I HATE PERFUME at the beach 1966.
Sun is shining and so is this scent. Bright sandalwood, salty, and sweet notes of coppertone.

Une Fleur de Chanel. This is a fragrance that Chanel released in 1998 and discontinued about a year later. I hadn't even heard of it until recently, but when I did, I got really excited about it and blind bought a bottle for a fairly large sum of money. It's a sharp green floral, focusing mainly on jasmine. The sharpness recedes over time to reveal a creamy, warm jasmine that's not very indolic at all. (There are other flowers in the mix too, but I can't pick them out.)

My first impression was that it was okay, but nothing spectacular. But then I returned to my office after having been away for 10 minutes or so and the office smelled wonderful. I think the less pleasant aspects of the fragrance are more prominent when I put my nose close to my arm, which I shouldn't do anyway.

I never even heard of this one.

Today, I'm wearing Terre d'Hermes - this is a bottle I bought about ten years ago and haven't worn it in a long time because of its ubiquitousness (ubiqutousosity?). It's such a great fragrance, though.

Une Rose Vermeille by Andy Tauer is what I am wearing today.

Today I wore Amber Absolute, and a girl at work called Amber liked it. Yesterday I wore French Lover, but no French girl liked it.

Today I wore Terre d'Hermès Eau Fraîche because I felt like wearing it.

Serge Lutens Bois et Fruits. I skipped my Habit Rouge Friday for it. Not bad, a little sweet but I like the wood and the fruity mix.

That is not a good enough reason. I am wearing ELDO True Lust Rayon Violet de Ses Yeux because the Creator appeared in a dream and advised me to do so.
