Rec'd this as a sample and am sad to say that I disliked this intensely. I've always been a fan of Fragonard fragrances, and this really fell short and had a nondescript "cheapness" smell to it -- I didn't pick up any vetiver -- just sort of chemically tweaked citrus and evergreen and it really didn't evolve any with drydown. Also, it was extremely masculine which I typicaly don't mind, but it's just got to do a little better than this!

Yowza! The opening note of Fragonard Vetyver smells like a blast of cheap aerosol hairspray and it doesn't improve much from there. I don't get much vetiver from this (at least the vetiver I know and love) or any other discernible note for that matter. Rather, Fragonard Vetyver smells like a random drugstore cologne that an elderly man would wear.
There are so many wonderful vetiver perfumes out there such as: Chanel Sycomore, Frederic Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire, Guerlain Vetiver, Creed Vetiver, Byredo Bal d'Afrique and Lalique Encre Noire that you don't need to waste time (or money) on this concoction.
Per The Perfumed Court, here are the notes for Fragonard Vetyver: citrus, vetiver, evergreen with "buttery, smoky, and soapy flavors".
