Reviews of Vétiver Extraordinaire

Memories: A pocket of Tasmania, perhaps the botanical gardens there. Energetic and active.

Who should wear this: Andre Agassi. A college sports coach.

Bottom line: Stick with Creed's Original Vetiver instead.

Stardate 20170210:

This is a vetiver mixed with cumin, mint and woods. Maybe some other spices.
The vetiver is earthy but cumin throws it off and mint makes it a bit weird.
A little bit unconventional vetiver and not bad if it lasted but not worth more than $40 for what it is

I'm not a huge fan of vetiver, and this one sometimes smells sour and synthetic to me.

Super clean and bright vetiver. I get touches of bitter orange peel mingling with the vetiver, hints of pepper and light application of dry cedar in the base peeks through after about an hour. Nothing too sweet, which is nice. Smells very refined and I could see wearing this in casual and formal settings

I only wish the bitter orange were a little bolder. That said, I still love this fragrance and it's one of my new favorites for Spring & Summer.

Should be renamed Vetiver Absolute. I smell nothing but Vetiver from beginning to end. Granted, Vetiver is a very complex essential oil that hits many notes but Malle did himself a modern perfume by bottling vetiver oil (high-end quality too) and calling it a fragrance.

Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire is fresh, green vetiver root, earthy, salty and slightly sweet. A hint of clove underneath and a faint wood tone round this off, but natural green vetiver root is the main theme.

VE would appeal to any vetiver lover, whether they be fans of the dark dirty style or the bright grass style, VE has aspects of both. Could be worn anywhere for any occasion, in all but the coldest of days. Average sillage and longevity on a 75 degree and dry day, but I expect it would really shine in higher temperatures.

Maybe the best modern vetiver available. When I finish my decant, I am definitely going to purchase a bottle. Thumbs Up.
