This would be great on the right man. I, however, am not that man. Comes across very green and masculine on me with the spices, the cool, fresh after-shower-clean cologne... still, very hot-- but, for a dude.

It really throws me off on my skin, it is very masculine and not at all natural, organic, rich vetiver like the essential oil or body butter I've used before, which was …

The more I smell of vetiver, the more I learn abou this faascinating note. Just when I think Iknow what it smells like, I sample a different version and marvel at the contrast. This one threw me the most, because it was the simplest. For example, how much citrus aroma is due to the vetiver, and how much is added as supporting notes by the perfumer? How much harshness, smokiness, or spiciness …Read more

A truly beautiful vetiver, very light and pretty yet good staying power. Sort of reminds me of a lemon wrapped in leather!

If you like sweetly floral, sugary, food-themed perfumes, put down the Vetiver and step away. However, if you like deep, rich, organic and earthy, then by all means treat yourself to this lush EDT. My obsession with vetiver is long standing and I had thought that the scent was too rich to wear as "day" fragrance, but this concoction is just right for it: vetiver lightened up and shot …Read more

I never use that expression "Holy Grail" when talking about fragrances... But this one gets five stars. I'm so picky about vetiver. I play with vetiver, spill vetiver, and inhale vetiver. I've spent long hours blending it with many other oils and so I know what I want. This one is right up there with Palais Jamais for me, but probably higher. It starts with a nice strong …Read more

I received a sample of this and was intrigued by what it would smell like..since I really didn't know what vetiver would smell like, neophyte that I am, I was open to anything.

I tried this twice..and twice I mulled over it..trying to describe what my olefactory senses were telling me. First off..it is sheer..not overwhelming..but definitely "hay-like"...I am not …

I really don't understand all the high marks for this fragrance. If I'm correct, this is straight Vetiver. If you like to smell like freshly cut HAY, then this is for you. As far as I'm concerned its tres horrible.

Yes, this VETIVER is wonderful. It is one of the few VETIVERs out there that truly allows the real vetiver oil to come out, undisguised.

OK, fellow fragrance lovers - I have tried many, many versions of vetiver - Azzaro, Herrera, Guerlain, Carven, Creed, Lorenzo Villoresi, even Frederic Malle - this one beats them all, for a fragrance to delight in. I am not good at describing what the notes are, but it smells....very high quality, expensive, genuine and absolutely unique. Joe Bob sez check it out.....

A sweet friend sent me a sample of this amazing rendition of vetiver. Clean and light for something so earthy and green. I can't wait for an opportunity to get a full-sized bottle. I'm hoooked.
