Picture the blade of a shovel that's just come out of the earth. Reach over and grab a fistful of the fresh damp earth and press your nose to it. Assume that you have a healthy bundle of vetiver roots in the mix. A master perfumer takes what you smell and adds, perhaps, a dose of citrus, but in a way that conceals the citrus; its identity is hidden and it is used to add a balancing hint of sweetness. The artistry that is in this fragrance is enormous. The illusion is of vetiver roots snatched from the earth, with the subterranean dankness and rawness intact. Of course, this is a carefully considered effect that gives the impression of spontaneity. If you love the smell of vetiver you will love this frag. If you prefer vetiver processed and sweetened by citrus, as in Guerlain's wonderful Vetiver, or if you like Creed's versions, where the vetiver is there in name only, this will likely smell rank. There are rumors that this frag will no longer be distributed in the US, and rumors that the company is folding. So if you're inclined to try it, or you know it and love it, it would be worth considering stocking up or looking for substitutes.

If I knew how to describe this scent, I would (earthy and herbal have been used in other reviews and they do fit!). However, all I can say is how much I love it. As soon as I put it on, I knew it was for me. I do not find it as overwhelming as some of the other reviewers did, but maybe it's because I like it so much?? If you enjoy soft, ladylike or floral scents, this is not for you.
