Bel Ami Vetiver fragrance notes

Reviews of Bel Ami Vetiver

Bel Ami Vetiver smells like it has warm, ambery cinnamon in it to me but none of that is listed. In fact, there are very few notes listed and the only one I can smell is the vetiver which is of the smokey variety.

Smells a little too mature for me. Definitely a cold weather scent to my nose. Too sweet and heavy for heat.

This has good projection and lasts all workday, so no need for many sprays.

A straight up Leather/Vetiver combo. Quite refined and upmarket. Very mature. Decent staying power. Nothing remarkable but still good.

Take a best-selling classic, graft onto it a popular more contemporary note and call it a day. JC Ellena made it all look so easy. He basically phoned it in. That’s probably why they call him a ‘master perfumer’.

It seems ‘originality’ is no longer a requirement when you craft for an esteemed house. ‘Commercial success’ is the unspoken rule.

Once again Ellena delivered the goods. Bel Ami fans lapped it up. The cash registers kept ringing while Hermes bean-counters kept smiling. As pleasant as this smells on the surface it fails to hide the stench of cynicism running underneath.

I would like to start by saying that I am a huge vetiver fan. Bel Ami Vetiver is THE vetiver I have been waiting for. Leather and vetiver mixed with citrus, genious! Absolutely intoxicating and masculine. I have gotten a lot of compliments when I wear it. It lasts 7-8 hours on me.

This is so damn good. A deep, rich, sophisticated, simple leather and vetiver combo with an added touch of citrus, a hint of iris, and a smidgen of vanilla. A spectacular love at first smell for me. It has a certain innate wealthy feel and will always carry a special place in my heart. My closest childhood friend’s father had a lot of money and he was always in a terrific mood, probably in his late 40’s, early 50’s. It reminds me of a scent that he would’ ve worn in the 80’s yet it feels remarkably modern. A timeless masterpiece. If you’re looking for a mature fragrance that says you’re successful and comfortable in your own skin, this is it.

For a simple fragrance (3 notes), Bel AMI Vetiver is fairly unique. I love everything with vetiver and leather is another favorite note, but leather has to be done right, not be overwhelming and paired with complimentary notes. Citrus, leather and vetiver, all balanced in a fragrance that frankly, took a few wearing s to appreciate. The citrus opening is sweet, and I do indeed smell something like baseball card bubblegum as other reviews note. I want to believe that there's a touch lavender in this that's not listed in the note pyramid. It's odd, as it eventually develops more towards a balanced vetiver, rather than a leather fragrance. The leather is faintly present and really just shapes the vetiver note. This is a clean, dry vetiver, slightly salty and not the bitter or rooty version. Below average sillage, but decent longevity. Office safe, but a more casual fragrance with a masculine lean IMO. Bottle worthy. Thumbs up.
