Reviews of Essence No. 6 : Vetiver

a very pleasant, fresh, citrusy vetiver...a light vetiver fragrance...immediately strikes me as one of those all around, inoffensive fragrances that's great for just about any time, season, or occasion...has a classic barbershop elegance to it...just a touch of that vetiver type smoky effect...I like vetiver...it's a very nice smelling ingredient, but the only reason i wouldn't get a bottle is because I'm more of a leather/tobacco/incense/patch/animalic kind of guy...but , if I was in the market for a vetiver fragrance, this would be up there on my list of choices...good stuff...

This is a great citrus vetiver, on par with the best vetivers I've tried.

The papyrus note is part of the beauty of this. I get images of nice, thick vetiver-scented paper, or even a scented book made with really nice paper.

A decent vetiver. Not too citrus and not too sweet.
Somewhere between grey vetiver and diptyque vetyver edp.

The entire Elie Saab La Collection Essences line has been composed by the talented Francis Kurkdjian. I am accustomed to smell either powerful and raw or at least somehow vetiver centered scents while acknowledging a label with vetiver on its name. That’s not the case though with Elie Saab’s Vetiver. Essence No.6 begins with some fresh citrus peel top notes paired with violet leaf to prelude the main course. This is a spicy woody event with an evident barbershop ambiance. The lavender is medicinal and quite herbal while a strong clove element stretches the medicinal aspect on one side and the anisic on the other supported by tarragon. The vetiver is slightly smoky and boldly supports the whole composition with the excellent quality of materials allowing the structure to carry its weight for a spruce chypre-like drydown. In general, it works as an imaginary vetiver bridge between Invasion Barbare and New York Intense connecting the suave barbershop air of the former with the classy chypre element of the latter while simultaneously washing them away with cold papyrus smoke. Vetiver is woodier, drier, greener and furthermore a tad sweet and moderately powdery fragrance exuding a warm aromatic aura. Masculine, classic and a great choice for a distinctive everyday signature.

Classy Polished Scent. Understated. Think of first Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum without the Vanilla, Sugar and Root Beer overload which tends to obscure the Natural flavour of Vetiver.
What I find most interesting is the Dry Canvas of Papyrus which gently draws my mind to layers of woody flavours within the root Vetiver.
Francis Kurkdjian has this extraordinary ability to combine ingredients in such a way as to coax layers of flavours of the subject, discard the nasty bits, polish the surface and present a slightly idealized piece of Art. Fragrantica says the design is geared toward Celebrity on the Red Carpet. Yes, perhaps Opera, Theatre stars. No Hollywood here.
A superior, balanced, clean and whispered soapiness to most of the Vetivers that have come before. On to the Neroli, brief test suggests FK genius at work.
