This vetiver smells a little synthetic at first whiff. But wear it for hours, and you'll discover several striking features quite unlike any other fragrance:
1. The vetiver is a singular note. For those who prefer their vetivers, at most, mingled with the old Fragonard formulation of vetiver with a pine base note (sadly no longer available, via the new incarnation of the old, beloved fragrance), they might be slightly disconcerted that this fragrance is a one-note symphony.
2. However, for those of us who discover every fragrance evaporates within an hour or so of application, the panoply of top, heart, and base notes is often lost. I appreciate the vetiver staying absolutely true.
3. If you have skin where the dry-down can produce a base note that becomes unexpectedly powdery, in addition to being barely discernible, this fragrance is a superb choice.
4. I wore it for the first time during an afternoon that involved an extraordinary amount of sweating, and I wasn't the only person who found the fragrance intoxicating. I'm still enamored of it, as is everyone who smells it on me.
The concept might be off-putting: an absolutely synthetic, one-note scent. The incarnation is simply extraordinary.
Pros: Endures on skin like nothing else--ideal for those whose fragrances wear off in hours
Cons: Users who expect a fragrance to develop with top/heart/and base notes will be thrown.
