Perfectly balanced everyday fragrance, Vetiver at its best
With Vetiver it's always such a thing - either you like this kind of scent or you don't, that's up to you. If you like that, the selection is still relatively large and then the individual providers differ enormously. Because too much of the good often seems counterproductive (you hear statements like: Uahhh, that stinks). If not enough other notes then often cover up the actual target.

GV from TF is a very big player in the segment of Vetiver agents. Although only really dominant in the base note, it is present right from the start. An enormously fresh start immediately creates a good mood and one notices from the beginning that equally fine ingredients have been arranged here with great sensitivity.
After one hour at the latest the fresh and fruity appearance is then history and Vetiver takes over for the rest of the event. And firstly, it takes a long time and secondly, depending on the dosage, it also communicates clearly to its environment. As with most TF fragrances, two to three sprayers are sufficient.
When will I use this fragrance? Basically one for every day that works both in summer and winter. As an office fragrance always right, because - appropriately dosed - accompanying the whole day, but always there but never intrusive. Probably rather something for the age group 40+, also h suit-wearer, I can imagine a teenager rather heavily in the smell cloud.

For me, this fragrance is unrivalled in the vetiver sector. If you are still looking for alternatives: Eau Intense Vetiver by Hermes (for me no option because too much of the good) or Vetiver Extraordinaire by Frederic Malle, the latter I would even call unisex, whereas GV m.E. is and remains a classic men's fragrance.

A Balanced Citrus Vetiver...
I really like this version of Grey Vetiver. I actually find the original a little formal (still a good thing) although I find this more versatile for warmer and hot weather.

I love the brightness of the grapefruit, lemon and bergamot. I think that pairing citrus with vetiver works and, although it's not an original combination, it's very well done here. I think that for versatility I would recommend this over the Eau de Parfum, however for value for money (in terms of lasting power etc), then the original lasts longer. I would suggest wearing this version year round as it's very versatile. For very formal wear and colder/winter weather the Eau de Parfum. I tend to like citrus very much and I love the way it's done here (it even almost reminds me of a cross between the original Grey Vetiver and Terre d'Hermès). The original is both more woody and more spicy, however this has it's own charm. I would suggest it for any age range and all seasons. A good offering from Tom Ford.
