Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EDP

Some call it plain, some call it modern.

Tom Ford’s Grey Vetiver may be a simplistic vetiver scent, but what it lacks in complexity is makes up with execution.

Off the top, I get a juicy citrus like combination of grapefruit and tart, almost sour bergamot, with a slightly smooth floral orange blossom that dissipates within a minute.

After the florals fade a clean, smoky, spicy vetiver comes to the front.

Nutmeg and a spicy biting pimento, similar to Polo Modern Reserve, join the party as well.

Finishes with a well rounded vetiver, with the dry, cedar like smokiness persisting.

The feeling you get from this fragrance is a dry, clean, smoky vetiver without the “dated” touches of some of the classics like Guerlain Vetiver.

Lasts on me a good 8 hours, and doesnt feel quite casual, but nice enough for work.

Versatile, yet I couldnt see myself wearing it everyday.

The smokiness is a bit overwhelming the heat, so be careful where you wear this. Its quite persistent with its presence.

Best way I can describe this one, is a pile of vetiver grass smoldering, and snuffed with tart citrus.

Good fragrance, but an average vetiver.

A good introduction to the citrus vetiver genre.
Cleaned up for the mass market, making it a little less interesting.
