A stunning classic. Originally this was released by Guerlain in 1959. It has been reformulated over the years, and gone through many bottle changes. The current bottle I have is from 2018, in a...

Vetiver by Guerlain is one of my personal favorites from the historic perfume house. Maybe this is because I’m enamored with the vetiver note and all of its green, smoky depth. This classic...

The perfume of the earth... Jean-Paul Guerlain's Vetiver was one of the the first fragrances composed primarily around Vetiver, and it has become a classic ever since. For me, when I first...

This is supposedly one of the classic, defining vetiver scents. However, I have to say I'm not all that impressed. Guerlain Vetiver just smells "unclean" to me. Admittedly, I am no vetiver...

This is a fragrance that defies gender. It smells like the roots of plants ground up in a blender with a dash of lemon--not necessarily edible, but it fresh and fantastic. It makes me imagine a...

Opening is a little sharp, drydown a little sweet. In the middle is vetiver, with a "nutty" tone to it I don't care for. (If you do like that note, FM Vetiver Extraordinaire is like that from start...

I love it and always will. My French dad has worn this all his life and I have fond memories from that, but it also differentiates enough on me that I wear it too - especially wonderful in summer....

I think this is a great scent...but not for me. I was hoping for a clean, crisp, green scent that would be great for daily use. But on my skin it's definitely a masculine scent. I love Gendarme...

On me this smells like smokey banana. I love it. I wonder if there's any Ylang Ylang in this. Great for summer, man ánd woman.

Hmm. I didn't expect this to be quite so...soapy. I like vetiver (I'm loving Chanel's Sycomore). But either my chemistry brings out the soapy notes in fragrances or it's just something that I don't...

Wonderful Vetiver- so Guerlain and very unisex. I don't care if this is at the men's section at Sephora ! It's a lovely rendition of Vetiver done well and it's a classic.

On initial application, there is a burst of lively and refreshingly tart citrus. YUMMY! Then it starts to change rapidly and dramatically to spicey nutmeg within just minutes. Later, orange blossom...

I have tried this so many times. I want to like it, but I just can't, no matter how I wear it. I like citrus, and I love vetiver. While this is very grassy (which I enjoy), it has a dry quality,...

I had a sample of this incredible Guerlain a few years ago, and I loved it! I can see why so many French women love to wear this one geared for men! Ooooh, la, la! Talk about a fresh, sexy,...

Love it after 2-3 minutes--vetiver heaven with a nice soapiness (Irish Spring?). As it dries down, however, it becomes more powdery and mellow. Wonderfully balanced. After 15 minutes, it's like...
