If you love fresh, clean-cut scents that don’t feel like they’re trying too hard, you’ll love Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. It’s got a classic, timeless energy that has universal appeal – it would be enjoyed by someone just starting out on their scent journey just as much as it would appeal to those later on in life…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Elegant, fresh and charismatic, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver is – you guessed it – all about vetiver. But before you reach that dry, smoky grass, you’re greeted by a touch of orange flower, but it’s the grapefruit note that really jumps out, adding its uniquely sharp, herbaceous citrus scent. Fun fact about grapefruit: it’s often compared to vetiver, so it works brilliantly here to prep you for the heart of vetiver. When you reach the heart, you get the smoky greenness of vetiver grass, which is warmed up and energized by a spicy hot blend of nutmeg and pimento. The scent settles soon enough, cosying into a blend of oakmoss and amber woods.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Know a debonair gent? Grey Vetiver is his personality bottled. It captures the essence of a crisp Tom Ford suit, worn by the type of guy who’s effortlessly cool and always on top form, who never feels the need to show off. You know straight away that he’s cool.
You Will Love This If…
For Grey Vetiver, it might be better if I told you that you’ll love this fragrance if you hate heavy, intense fragrances. That’s not to say that it’s fleeting, but it never feels like it’s weighing you down. It’s cool; it’s chic; it’s classic.

Not familiar with that? It gives me and a few other Team Escentual members huge G & T vibes. That’s why it reminds me a little of Atkinsons Mint & Tonic.
Is Grey Vetiver Unisex?
Grey Vetiver is presented as a men’s fragrance, and I can see why; it definitely has a barber shop, cologne-like quality.
What’s The Longevity Like?
As a general guide, Tom Ford’s Eau de Parfum creations last an average of six hours, which I definitely agree with after testing it out on my skin.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
Like quite a few fragrances in the Tom Ford Signature Collection, the Grey Vetiver fragrance is held in ribbed glass in honour of the art deco movement – Tom Ford loves to draw inspiration from the past.
