This spicy and woody fragrance is what I imagine heartthrobs of Hollywood’s golden age smelled like: elegant and charming, yet vigorous and adventuresome.
The perfume takes its name from and centres around vetiver, an extraordinary tropical grass that originates from India. Its smell is complex: at the same time fresh, spicy, earthy and woody. Although vetiver is a popular ingredient in men’s perfumes, inspiring examples of less masculine fragrances can certainly be found in perfume history. As you may expect, with this fragrance I refuse to choose sides.
Vetiver opens with a sharp aromatic blend of citrus fruits, followed by fresh ginger. At its heart all facets of vetiver are present. To add extra depth and complexity we included two varieties of vetiver, one from Haiti and the other from Java. Once the vetiver heart begins to subside, cedarwood and ambrette seed provide a soft and gentle finish.
Note that Vetiver is being phased out of the collection and that only limited stock is available.
