Reviews of Vétiver

Vetiver by L.T. Piver is a spiced up take on the traditional grassy vetiver note. This is a pretty unique composition in that it employs some more non-traditional notes - apple - to freshen up the top. While I could detect a bit of tartness from the apple, it is quickly over taken by cinnamon and clove. It's slightly sweet too, so the spice almost has sort of cookie or bakery effect, like a spiced apple cake. The spiced apple vetiver cake stays pretty linear for about five hours with average sillage, although at times it seemed a soapy note came through. I like this for cold weather better than a summer vetiver scent.

Piver has a very nice take on vetiver and if I can find a bottle of this reasonably, I'll add it to my wardrobe. Thumbs up.

A very fresh vetiver with a nice citrus-green apple mix in the opening mixed with pepper. Very refreshing and modern smelling combo. The drydown is a bit smokey, which makes it very masculine with a nice vetiver-woody base surrounded by flowery and spicy elements. It lasts and projects at least average. Recommended if you can find it! Could have been, to my imagination, a (more modern) flanker of the Guerlain one, next to the 'Sport' and 'Frozen' versions! Rating: 9/10

A vetiver blend that goes very lightly on the actual vetiver itself, which may make it a good choice for a summer scent for those vetiver lovers, who prefer not to reek of it during the warm months.

I get a green, suede-like scent on opening, but the blend soon takes over. The dry down is a nondescript wood fragrance.

Perfectly pleasant, but not for the true vetiver aficionado.

Elegant and exquisitely refined. The perfect fragrance to leave a subtle yet distinguished impression.

A vetiver where freshness is achived with an unripe green apple note in the opneing. It dries down to a retrò woody-fragrance that's still pretty likeable but, maybe, not as interesting as it is during the opening. Nice and inexpensive.

Starts a bit like anise == apple + vetiver? Spicy! After 5 minutes the soft and gentle smokey vetiver rules. For my nose the further development doesn't change much. The fragrance relies on the arousing, exotic smell of the natural vetiver - well, what else? If You're after spooky "notes" why not mention dusty bone dry tube electronics, ozone, high voltage, supernatural phenolic sweetness, oil, tar? It's all in here, as far as You might imagine it. I could nearly smell my soldering iron, if that wasn't to poetic. It's definitely a mans scent, powerful, austere. Worth a try, if You dare.
