Reviews of Hermèssence Vétiver Tonka

"Let Tonka cancel
Vétiver, leaving only
Thy divine Ratio!"

Said Redneck never
But thought immediately
Upon that 1st sniff

By which 1 can C
That A sum of parts B less
In sum magick way

Negative beauty
Naught B held positively
Noted multiply

Sum gold missing root
Ore contrapositively
Sum missing base root

Pow'ry piece of 5
Deducted on 1 of 2
Bestowed o'er them both

Sum fonder absence
Sum imaginary loss
Sum -negative gain

Artful algebra
Perpetually moved by
Dodgy remainder.

Thus we C as real
That Red's <3 B 1 2 steal
Should A B i deal

Through powder-puffs of
Vétiver not Vetivèr
His powder-room cry

Quoth: "There is a God!"
When 1st this 1 he B held
Midst Midas' mean throne

B 4 foolishly
Resolving 2 tell whole truths
No 0 left out.

Yet even odd fool
May chance upon greater truth
By sum lesser means

And thus praise ratio
Of Vétivèr o'er Tonka
As proof less B more.

A brilliant vetiver, contemporary, concise and effective. Vetiver seated right next to tonka that cancel out each others' worst qualities. Green, light brown like early autumn, lightly toasted, nutty and slightly buttery without the fat; well-proportioned, sweetness without excess, and adorned with hints of praline. Diffusive, and reasonably tenacious; sumptuous and thoroughly charming.

4/5

This is different... Sugary stuff with vetiver. Candy notes fall away soon, leaving lots of lovely vetiver. Not long after, a faint tobacco.

Vetiver and well-behaved Tonka are definitely the stars here. Fresh, slightly creamy, in a way. Excellent note fusion.

Every now and again I smell caramel on my skin. Eventually the Tonka overrides the vetiver. Overall, a pretty cool fragrance - well done!

A delicious vetiver. The smoky vetiver works very well with the nutty and creamy qualities and it smell delicious, but I wouldn't really call it a gourmand. It smells addictive and the composition is very smooth and rounded. It's just the perfect amount of smoke, green and caramel/praline. I only wish it was more tenacious.

For me, VT stands out slightly in a crowded field of creamy, modern vetivers that includes Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire, and Diptyque's Vetiveryo to name a few. In this vetiver genre the feature note's sharp or pungent edges are smoothed over by supporting notes. The perfumer's hand is what creates the fragrance's essence and Elena does a great work here. VT opens with a warm vetiver that is smoothed of it's bite by a pecan cream-tonka bean accord. From the start each note is present, but seem to be searching for their rightful balance with the sweetness at it's greatest height from the beginning. After about 30 minutes, the tone soon finds itself settling into a fantastically, smooth, creamy vetiver that has a touch of dry sweetness lingering beneath the heart. It's admittedly intoxicating, with light to average sillage, yet excellent longevity. Could easily be worn by either sex and would beautifully counter the more decisively masculine Bel Ami Vetiver in a Hermes wardrobe. A sure Thumbs Up for me, but I'm not certain if I prefer VT to one of the other similar fragrances in the field. Price is a bit beyond my typical budget, however it is one that I would wear often. I'll slowly work through my samples before buying.
