Reviews of Essence No. 6 : Vetiver

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.

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.

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.
