    Genre: Woods

    Diptyque sets its vetiver in a mild, gently contoured green floral context that’s at once more delicate and more ambiguous in gender than most traditional vetiver scents. It offers none of the smoky incense that comes with Chanel’s Sycomore of Lalique’s Encre Noire, nor any of the fierce, rooty, medicinal edge you’d get from the old Route du Vétiver or Etro’s Vetiver. There is some warm earthiness to the vetiver note, plus a hint of the odd saline quality attached to vetiver in Diptyque’s own defunct Virgilio, The Different Company’s Sel de Vetiver, Heeley’s Sel Marin, and Miller Harris Fleurs de Sel. The only other vetiver compositions I’ve worn that set the headline ingredient alongside such conspicuously floral accords are Guerlain’s Vetiver pour Elle and Mazzolari Vetyver. Vetyverio seems a bit shyer than either, but it’s not without character.

    Vetyverio opens on a very juicy, realistic lemon note that’s seasoned with just a touch of fresh herbs. The herbaceous content is enough to keep the top notes from smelling like furniture polish for their brief duration, after which vetiver and green floral notes come to the fore. Hewing very closely to the vetiver is an equally potent carrot seed note, which contributes to both the scent’s earthy and saline qualities. A mild and commendably natural nutmeg note adds a welcome degree of complexity, accentuating as it does the nutty aspect inherent in Diptyque’s vetiver. As so often the case with Diptyque compositions, the scent holds a relatively linear course once its fundamental shape solidifies.

    Vetyverio displays the odd trait, observed by many in Amouage’s Dia for Men, of seeming to disappear an hour or so after application, only to return intermittently, at full force and at random intervals, for hours after. I attribute this phenomenon to olfactory habituation, and I suspect it will vary from wearer to wearer. The drydown, once it does set in, consists of the vetiver and carrot seed pairing in the company of warm, but only faintly animalic musk – an arrangement that comes close to ambrette seed in profile. On the whole I consider Vetyverio a worthwhile addition to the Diptyque line. While it’s hardly a bold fragrance, it is a distinctive, attractive, and extremely versatile take on a familiar ingredient, with the added bonus of unisex quality in a genre often ceded solely to men.

    Wow! I thought I had found the vetiver of ALL vetivers in Creed and Guerlain but I was wrong. Vetyverio by Diptyque is now my new favorite vetiver. In the initial spray I get lots of vetiver and the dry down I smell vetiver with some citrus. It is smooth and not over powering. Perfect for the office or daytime wear. I get compliments when I wear this magical fragrance.

    (Floral, Woody Musk, F) Vetiver, I'm assuming. Ah, this green is very nice. The base is still quite dense, but the airy greenness flies above it. There's probably citrus. Looking it up: "notes of mandarin, grapefruit, lemon and bergamot, followed by the floral bouquet of ylang-ylang, rose and geranium and spices such as carrot seed, nutmeg and clove. The base is composed of dry cedar, vetiver and musk." Yes, I detect the flower now. With me, my nose is disabled by very strong elements like cedar and clove, unless in just the right amounts and with the perfect counterbalancing ingredients. (This says nothing about other people's noses, of course.)

    Somewhere there is V

    Initially where this scent was to be named 'Apricot', for that's what I get. A not of grapefruit, ylang-ylang and a floral geranium with a touch of rose finally leads to some vetiver rearing its head. Nonetheless, the clove note is more dominant on my skin, yet vetiver shines through occasionally. In the base a creamy cedar is added, conjuring up Tam Dao memories. This scent has the Diptyque soft, restrained, smooth and well blended elegance that many scent of this house are well-known for. Adequate silage and projection, with three hours of longevity. Nice in spring.

    A peach of a scent.

    Seems peachy to me – not my favorite note. The peach note ("powdered peach" is listed in the pyramid as a note) is supported… augmented… by the citrus, ylang ylang, and the geranium accord: the combination smells quite abstract… peachy. It well done, and I would consider it an excellent accord if their were not so much peach dominance. Don’t get me wrong… the peach note is not "potent"; it’s quite delicate, but overwhelms the other notes in the accord... to my nose - very likely my aberration. There’s spice lightly in the background, and I’m pretty much missing the rose. The vetiver is there, too, but it plays a very subordinate role to the peachy dominance. Because of the dominant peach, yang, and geranium, I have a difficult time thinking of Vetyverio as a vetiver fragrance. It comes to me as a light, delicate peach fragrance with a soft spice background that turns powdery and then disappears. Sillage is soft and longevity is quite poor on my skin.

    Pros: Subtly done translucent peachy / floral.
    Cons: Weak sillage and longevity."

    I give this a 'only just' thumbs up because this scent has a major issue with longevity or any form of projection whatsoever.

    HOWEVER it smells absolutely magical, and is a very different take on the usual grubbier vetiver smells so beloved on Basenotes. It is definately a unisex smell, bordering on feminine but the right man can totally rock this and get plenty of appreciation!

    If you after another Guerlain Vetiver you will be disappointed. This one is flowery and fruity. A sophisticated and mysterious scent, and great for summer - unfortunate that it doesn't last, especially as it not particularly cheap
