Agree with Wyrmiax below. I originally thought vetiver tonka would be perfect for DH, but it didn't seem to make any impression on him. (Neither did Eau d'Hiver which is NOT a vetiver or at all...

'With its caramel, praline and blonde tobacco notes, tonka bean draped vetiver in softness and gave its woody notes a mellow roundness," says Jean-Claude Ellena on the Hermes website. Given his...

Another Jean Claude Ellena triumph! Vetiver Tonka is one of my favorites this season. Nutty, warm, sweet, and almost edible without ever crossing the line over to food-y scents. A man or a woman...

A wonderful scent, but hard to describe. My husband, who also loves it, said, "It smells like a little bit of everything, but not too much of anything." There is vetiver, there's a nutty quality,...

Very nice. Vetiver Tonka is a complex blend of sweet and dry notes. I smell green grass and sweet neroli over a light vetiver base. Truly unisex - I really like the sweet grassy notes but my DH...

A definitely full bottle worth. When my husband uses it I cant stop sniffing. And it is rather good on me too. Mostly smell vetiver, nuts and dark chocolate.

Vetiver Tonka is a deliciously gourmand Vetiver scent, very different from the classic, clean and rather masculine vetiver colognes that we are used to know. Official notes: vetiver, neroli,...

Wow, I get none of those cool notes. I don't even get tonka, to be honest. All I get is vetiver, which is fine enough as it is, smooth and woody, but it leans to the masculine on me and I get...

Vetiver Tonka, my most favourite so far, is simple and interesting at once. It is one of the best Vetiver scents I tried, equally revealing the sweetness and freshness of this magnificent root. The...

Just beautiful. Fortunately I don't get much sweet or sugar here. VT's sister AN is sweeter on me (honey). This wonderful surprise is a slightly spiced, smokey and *almost* masculine scent with...

I hate to say it, but something smelled off to me when I tried this, both times, and after reading the reviews, I get it! It does smell a little like marijuana!

This is a wonderful vetiver, unusual to start with - that's probably the tonka bean, that lends a touch of hazelnut sweetness. This dissipates rather quickly though (about an hour on me) and leaves...
