Doing 'compare and contrast' with vetivers this week. I have Creed on one wrist and the Le Labo on the other and like both, but am finding myself really drawn to the Le Labo (which actually comes across as virtually identical - at least on my skin - to the old formulation of 1903 from the J. Peterman folks.)

The new Marc Jacobs Bang. This one makes Gendarme seem ferocious in comparison. Silly print ad and completely over the top bottle for such a stealthy skin scent.

Anyone tried Gucci Pour Homme II or Gucci by Gucci? I'm trying to find something versatile (for office and evening wear) to complement my YSL Pour Homme, Bvlgari Aqua and Sexual.

I tried Gucci by Gucci and went away quite underwhelmed. Given that you have Bvlgari Aqua, I think you can do without it.

For office/daytime, I'd recommend you look at a vetiver: Guerlain, Givenchy, Carven.

For night, perhaps - depending on your preferences/weather, hmmm, I'm running out of ideas.

....

today: Back to the civilized/working/clean-shaven world. Aramis New West.

Gucci Pour Homme II is a perfect office fragrance. It has violet and black tea notes and it isn't overwhelming. Its actually one of my best fragrance. Gucci by Gucci is just blah

Creed Himalaya.

Trying it in the office today and it seems suitable for a work environment. It's not bad, but it's nothing special, much like all the other Millesimes I've tried (GIT, SMW, Imperial). Good but lacking character.

Can anyone keen on Creeds explain why all the Millesimes smell pretty much the same? Or is it just me?

Yes, I got a sample and it's nothing special.

Which Guerlain, Givenchy or Carven ones in particular? The sales people just want to sell you what they make commissions on.

They all ought to be named "Vetiver" or - to make things interesting - "Vetyver" (no, I'm not being snarky, I realize my previous post was ambiguous). Think: green, cleanish grassy smell. The Givenchy and Carven may be tough to find but a decent Guerlain counter (Sephora, for that matter), ought to have Vetiver. It's been in their line-up for 40 (?) years now.

They all dry down to the same creamy, dumb, Ambergris base. That's the main complaint I have as well about the "modern" Creeds. Aventus and Windsor are very new Creed scents and don't dry down to Ambergris.
