Reviews of Essence No. 6 : Vetiver

This is a great vetiver, if you like vetiver. I happen to be rather indifferent to it - I prefer it to be in a composition, rather than the sole player, as it is here.

Having said that, this is a superb example of a vetiver "soliflore". The top has a dry, green, almost mintiness to it, the rest is straight-up, clean vetiver. Not citrusy, not rooty, but somewhere right in the middle.

You can grab this for a great price right now, so it's hard not to recommend. Not miles away from the likes of CDG's Vettiveru, but with better ingredients and a beautiful green juice that matches the scent perfectly.

Beautiful take on vetiver signed Francis Kurkdjian.

It opens with a fresh citrusy vetiver. Shortly after, the vetiver goes back behind the scenes and the papyrus takes the lead, supported by cloves, and a hint of grapefuit to sharpen the edges. Then, the vetiver comes back (without being loud) in the drydown.

A poem that would deserve to be recited louder... indeed, this creation misses the masterpiece grade because of its modest projection.
Not a revolution here, but - like the other fragrances of this line - a perfectly tailored blend, using both haitian and indonesian vetiver oils.

Like a litterature masterpiece that happens later to be just a good movie, this juice is a fantastic composition that fails to enter the perfume history because of its poor performance. Still a love for me, though.

Spring/Fall days (and summer mildly hot days), 30+. A slight sweetness in the background makes it unisex, but still, it leans on the masculine side.

Edit: I guess the performance is weather-dependent. It still projects modestly after 8 hours on my skin, so performance is pretty good actually with 6-8 sprays.

A highly fresh and almost clean take on vetiver. The vetiver here is woody, dry, green (of course) and a tiny bit sweet. It is also moderately powdery and warmly aromatic. A scent that is stereotypically "masculine," but could be worn by a female who really loves green woodies. It's fairly traditional smelling and nothing out of the ordinary, and its strength and longevity leave a bit to be desired, but I can see many males happily wearing this in a work environment.

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.
