My friends rave about the burnt sugar and grilled hazelnut notes they get in this. The wonderful, rich sweetness and complexity of the dry down with the notes of cereal, dried fruits and tonka...

On paper, this seemed like it would be great as I love most of the notes listed for this: vetiver, neroli, bergamot, grilled hazelnut, dry fruit, cereals and tonka bean. In actuality - ugh! This...

An unexpected combination of these two notes, Vetiver Tonka starts out with a sweet vanilla/tonka blast, and then morphs into a lovely, citrusy vetiver. The tonka pretty much disappears on me as...

Vetiver is one note I can not stand in perfumery, and unfortunately this perfume is no exception. The background notes to the Vetiver Tonka provide a complimentary sweetness to the aquired scent...

Vetiver real essential oil tends to smell quite musty and it also tends to be incredibly strong and lasting. I appreciate vetiver in men's fragrances a lot, especially married to citrus notes,...

Ack...too sweet. This is the one for vanilla lovers. I was completely overwhelmed by the sweetness...all that tonka, vanilla and ? ...not sure. These reviews are very accurate, the only...

If Hermes made a vetiver tonka candle, I'd be delighted. Because the lemony/limey/slightly creamy fragrance would be nice in my living room, kind of peppy and invigorating. But as a woman's...

A lemony base underlies this slightly green, slightly smoky, slightly earthy, slightly creamy hazelnut scent. My least favorite of the Hermessences, since at its best, it is not anything...

Two great tastes that don't taste great together: Vetiver and tonka. Hrmm. At first, the composition is lovely - the vetiver is dry, earthy and grounded, and is tempered by just a twinge of...

Vetiver Tonka opens on my skin with a very green citrusy cloud. i thought it was lemon, but in actuality it is neroli and bergamont.I never got the hazelnuts, cereal or dried fruit. Nor did I get...

This has a strong, persistent bitter note, like burnt candy. I found it unpleasant. I've found, though, that bitterness can be person-specific. My nose may just be amplifying this more than in...

At first I was underwhelmed by this as it was overshadowed by the other Hermessence scents at the boutique. But, after a good day spent with this, I have to say that I can see how it could be...

Wow! This smells even better than I expected. The vetiver is clearly pronounced and cradled by the sweetness of hazelnuts and green notes. I think all of the other reviewers have captured VT's...

First off let me say that this vetiver is not for those who like their vetiver dry. This vetiver is more along the lines of Guerlain's Vetiver. Vetiver Tonka starts off as a fresh green citrus...

Not getting much hazlenut (sadly as I adore this note) or Tonka for that matter. Distinct vetiver is what I get. This reminds me of some of the L'Artisan Philtres. Vetiver fans might like it as...
