"Contrasted and rich, Vetiver Oriental explores the chocolate redolent darkness of vetiver, the fragrant pale-beige roots of Indian grass. The scent of vetiver ranges from bitter grapefruit to soft...

I like some vetiver fragrances, but not this one. To my nose it smelled a lot like walking into my hair salon, where everything they use is from Aveda. Overwhelming, a bit too vanilla-sweet, and...

Like ocarina, I get burning rubber. It's a vanilla flavored burning vanilla rubber and it's submerged under a wonderful woody vetiver scent, but it never goes away and taints the whole thing. In...

mmm! buttery leather, spicy old dark wood, complex rich green.. all blends to be feminine enough, exotic & sexy but not too much for casual or office. has slight sweetness & boozy element.

This is nice, but what I get from this is vetiver, lavender and incense - it's pretty, and warm. But I've smelled lots of vetivers, and this is the least impressive of the bunch. It's lacks the...

Sadly, this was a scrubber on me. The opening was very sharp and harsh, with one note (perhaps the vetiver) that simply would not die down. I don't think it's much of an oriental either - just an...

I find this an interesting scent in that it unites opposites. It smells really clean, but it's also very sexy. And it smells crisp, but at the same time sultry. I think it would smell equally good...

I get no chocolate from VO, unless it's chocolate that's been thrown into a tire fire. There is indeed a deeply sexy vetiver fragrance buried in here, too bad it's smothered by a persistent...

I love vetiver, and (generally) the deeper and darker the better. I get no thrill from Guerlain's Vetiver, for example, which I find too clean, almost soapy-smelling. In the vetiver spectrum,...

In two words: unparalleled, incomparable. This is not like any vetiver I have sampled before, and I have sampled a fair share of them. This is not your typical unisex vetiver scent that ends up...
