Not my favourite vetiver
Citrusy start, clear vetiver dry down. I think of this as a "middle of the road" vetiver - not too dank, not too heavy, not too earthy - but not as bright or light or dry as other vetivers I've smelled, like in THoO's Each Other, for example. I found this scent to be fairly straightforward and linear. Citrusy top faded quickly, as these are wont to do, leaving my impressions of this fragrance as mostly just a vetiver. A lovely vetiver, but basic and straightforward nonetheless.

The comparison to Terre d'Hermes is obvious and must be commented on. I found it less complex and interesting than TdH, which I was surprised by. I also found it had less longevity and sillage - also a surprise for me given this is an EDP. Perhaps I went noseblind to it? Also notably that the flinty notes I love so much in TDH are absent here.

Among the best!
One of my favourite vetivers and favourite Montales. This fresh combination of spices and vetiver seems to appeal me a lot! I just purchased a full bottle from this beauty. This scent is really relaxing, and sets my mind to a relaxing, confident state. This smells like a hay of dried vetiver roots splashed with Grapefruit and Black Pepper. I smell Elemi, Patchouli, Cedarwood too, which adds to the complexity of the scent. These notes stay in the background, never overpowering the vetiver/spice notes. Great longevity and sillage.

On a sidenote: I have and use both Terre d'Hermes and Montale's Vetyver. I admit they are similar, but if you "listen", you can smell the differences. Honestly I can recommend both.

Delicious spicy vetiver!
Yes, Red Vetyver is mostly like Terre D'Hermes, BUT with a better lasting power in my skin.

In my opinion the spices added to Red Vetyver gives an edge to it.

Wonderful scent for summer/spring, althought it can be used all year around.

Sillage is medium, lasting power is around 10 hours and projection is medium-heavy.

If you are in doubt, just buy both them: two great scents.

My Vetiver Top!
Red Vetiver is exclusive and gorgeous.

It is far better than Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver because this RV smells so rich and elegant.

I like this better than Chanel Sycomore (sweeter and milder) & even with my Terre de Hermes EDP & EDT. RV is strong but non cloying. It is a scent that would make a statement that you've got a wonderful taste in fragrance. It is rich, the vetiver is formal, the projection and longevity is to die for.

So far, I have tried many Vetiver fragrance from designers to Niche vetivers even the 1902 Vetiver. But of all these frags, my top is RV, second is Encre Noir, next would be Sel de Vetiver, TDH EDP, Sycomore & L'Occitane Vetyver.

Red Vetiver is good to blind buy so long as you have an idea what a vetiver note smelled from other perfumes. You can't go wrong with RV. It is for me, so far, Montale's best after trying my other Montales: Red Aoud, Black Aoud, Patchouli Leaves, White Aoud and Aoud Ambre.

Montale Red Vetiver: 9.5/10 ... It is almost a holy grail, almost, a wonder!

Nice dry woody vetiver with a blast of black pepper. Balsamic notes come in after a while. I like to call him "Terre d'Hermes on steroids"
