    Is there anything available now that is similar to the vintage Guerlain? You know, besides the current Guerlain.

    Not sure, I had a decant of cdg vetiveru a long time ago and I think it was in the same style. Do they still make that one?

    Yeah, they do - an eau de cologne that's probably the best buy of all vetivers at $52.

    The Guerlain was the first I tried. I liked it so much, I was sure I would adore all Vetivers, but alas, I don't. Some vetivers have a sulphuric note that rubs me the wrong way.
    Anyways, the Guerlain EdC in the clam bottle is my favorite. I also really like the zingier Frozen flanker. Tom Ford's Grey Vet is similar to the Frozen, in my mind, and is a wonderful work day scent.
    I have a split of the Dior I have been hoarding until summer. Looking forward to that!

    Starting my 3 day Easter holiday weekend with Azemour les Orangers, a tart orange citrus riding on a leather saddle. PdE does a nice job. Looking forward to trying their new releases.

    Someone mentioned Malle's Vetiver being a bit boring and it kind of struck a chord. I've tried a handful of Malle scents now and I've yet to discover one that I really, really like. Some of them are interesting, like noir epices, but I haven't been tempted to buy anything more than a sample so far.

    Today, because of all the vetiver talk: Coeur de Vetiver Sacre.

    I find Noir Epices to be a bit odd. Actually the only one that I neither love nor dislike.

    Portrait of a Lady, Musc Ravageur, En Passant, French Lover, Lys Mediterranée, Le Parfum de Thérèse, Carnal Flower, Géranium pour Monsieur, Dries van Noten are all pretty damn good to fantastic. The others, I simply haven't worn often enough (or at all) to comment on them. I can understand that you think some of these seem to lack the special something, but I find they are very well crafted as well as balanced and have a clear focus.

    Pre-shower: Fat Electrician. Since I'm a man of honesty, I have to admit I don't really enjoy this.

    I'm sure you are right about the construction and focus part, but I just haven't found any that I really liked for myself (with the possible exception of Poal). I just dabbed on a bit of musc ravageur and I just don't dig it. Seems odd because I have really enjoyed some of the other things you like. Of course, scents are intensely personal which is what makes them interesting.

    Yeah, I get that.

    PoaL is really great. Hence it'll be my SotE. :)

    For a cold spring Saturday night out, I chose Neela Vermeire Trayee, a terrific oriental featuring a nutty, saffron infused, sweet sandalwood.[​IMG]

    My pre-shower walk the dogs scent: LaVia del Profumo Tawaf, my favorite jasmine, very rubbery & indolic.

    After shower I am going to shoot photos of wild flowers pushing up through the leaves in the woods behind the house. Slumberhouse Mare shall be my SOTD. Enjoy the weekend guys.
