Grey Vetiver was added to Tom Ford’s established collection of vetiver-centered scents in 2009. Marketed for men, it comes in a perfume bottle that is familiar to fans of the brand, except lighter and perhaps even more drab. The notes for the fragrance are listed as orange blossom, warm woods, sage, grapefruit, iris, pimento, nutmeg, oakwood and amber besides the dominant vetiver. Grey Vetiver was made available in 50 and 100 ml.
Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford Review
If you associate grey with neutral or even dull, then you’ll find that Grey Vetiver is not far behind. Despite being a well-made fragrance, we feel that is nothing new or special. The vetiver is muted, and even the citrus and other woodsy notes are toned down in sharpness and smokiness. Versatility is what it has going for it though, because wearing this to more formal occasions is not a problem for us. Lovers of vetiver would not find the price justified, especially when considering its average performance and sillage. Those who would like to venture to fragrances that highlight the note might find a first love in the Grey Vetiver though, granted that they are willing to shell money for the asked price.
The vetiver is not strong enough and easy to appreciate for non-admirers of the note
We think it is versatile, appropriate even for more formal occasions
A subdued scent as opposed to other Tom Ford releases, unexciting
Sillage and performance is less than what we would expect from its price
Not a unique vetiver presentation
