Reviews of Hemingway

There is one review of Hemingway.
Masque Milano (Homage to) Hemingway, or just Hemingway, Act 2, Perfume 3 from the line that I first smelled in sequence at Perfumologys introductory event for the Masque Milano in June.

Its palpably a vetiver-dominant fragrance, and, as owner/creative director Alessandro Brun emphasized, entails at least two types of vetiver (from Java and Haiti) and is, to my nose, a fairly sharp and bright vetiver experience while being sufficiently dark and smoky, really a jack of all trades. I find that it obtains an interesting middle-ground between ashy/smoky and fresh/bright. I wouldnt really call it fresh at all, but its not a smoke monster (shout out to fans of Lost).

It opens with a pungent sharpness, the top notes of ginger and rhubarb no doubt facilitating this effective, with a heart of vetiver, drying down to a balanced blend of cedar, patchouli, and leather. Really, though, the blended vetiver heart tells most of the story as a sort of nod to Ernest Hemigways tenure in the Caribbean. I do not typically associate vetiver with the tropics, even though thats where it comes from, since it feels like a suitable fragrant ingredient for the colder weather, but the same can be said of a lot of organisms that grow in hotter areas but whose yield nonetheless seems more apt for colder weather (i.e. coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oud).

My vetiver knowledge is far from extensive, but its far more to the ashy side along the lines of Lalique Encre Noire than to the fresher side like Guerlain Vetiver, though thats a gross oversimplification. Surely this strikes me as a vetiver for vetiver fans, however, and fans of vetiver will love it and those less familiar with vetiver may be confused by it.

Hemingway is an immersive vetiver experience, somewhat intense but not overwhelming. It performs very well, though, a significant scent cloud coming from a few fairly minor sprays from the sample atomizer, but its cost, $145 for 35ml, even with the beautiful presentation, indicates that, like most of the line, you should sample it and love it before buying. I personally find it to be a fun fragrant experience though I know that I tend to reach for vetiver fragrances very seldom (Ive a few: Guerlain Vetiver, Roja Vetiver Extrait, and Lalique Encre Noire a la Extreme).
