Reviews of Les Nombres d'Or : Vetyver

A bit of a counterpoint vetiver where fresh notes are placed against warmer ones, so we get cool citrus, clean aspects of the vetiver spectrum matched with ginger that is both warm and cool, sun-soaked saltiness and the deeper burn of nutmeg. Dry, well-balanced and easy wearing, but theres little here that lifts it that little bit above all the other well-executed vetivers out there.

Opens with a root type vetiver that is surrounded by tonka, ginger and resins that give me an overall thick incense feel. After one hour it starts to settle and I get mostly a sweet, slightly spicy and slightly woody combination; it's sweeter than I imagined it would be and the vetiver is just a supporting note, because after the initial spray it doesn't make its presence any more like a clear note. Due to the weight that it has, this one is more suited for the colder days.

A beautiful dry vetiver with a hell of a supporting cast. Slightly floral without being too sweet. The sage seems to give it the dryness, while the citrus is provided by the grapefruit. Very nice. Can't forget about the light musc note in this stirring things up a little. Seems like a lot going on for a good purpose.

A vetiver for folks who don't favor vet as a dominant note?

From the nozzle, I get a somewhat floral, slightly powdery mix of notes, including vetiver. On skin, the Mona is woody, nutty vetiver, with pepper or cardamom (although none listed in notes). There is also a vague floral note, apparently violet, but it is in background. The opening phase is very nice indeed, projecting moderately, with a polished, buttoned down demeanor.

A couple hours in, the floral note remains, joined by a soapy aspect, evidently contributed by Clary Sage. Nice, but by this time, I had to put my nose to my sleeve to get a fix on the fragrance; its projection had dropped to almost nothing. Heading into the dry down, to the extent that the fragrance can still be detected, it is primarily a woody albeit rather mild vetiver.

MdO's Vetiver is certainly well made, and might be a good bet (if money is no object) for office wear if said office is not fragrance friendly.

Otherwise, one can find better vets for less $$. Neutral rating here.

a fantastic take on vetiver that is among my favourites. it stands in a class all its own; a vetiver that is feels 'wet' but is not at all sweet. it is succulent, rich, sparkly without being sharp & citric. it is an inspired take on how to do vetiver on a different path. great longevity with a development that gets drier...... love it!

Graceful, pleasant, fresh citrus opening of dusty tobacco, cloves, a slight medicinal vein, and of course a vetiver, which however emerges slowly, giving you the feel of having to look for it in this imaginary garden. Dry but rich, definitely Mediterranean, elegant, clean, inoffensive but sophisticated and cozy. The evolution is nice, it eventually develops a talcum, cloudy brightness, a sort of mid-afternoon luminosity, a distinguished country house in a lazy early Autumn afternoon, with this opalescent ochre light, the powdery smell of bedsheets and toiletries, and a herbal blend aroma coming from the garden, with just a hint of earthiness provided by a hay note. Not a miracle, but distinctive, subtly sophisticated, a pleasant addition to the Italian "nostalgic" family of fragrances (I somehow felt the same mood and the same old school respectful attitude of Villoresi's Vetiver).
