    Fresh, clean, slightly spicy, gingery, even soapy, Vetiver. This is a really good smelling green Vetiver, far more down the Original Vetiver path than the Encre Noire style Vetiver. I almost get something like a ginger ale note in this though not exactly. This is probably the best "fresh" green leaf Vetiver I've tested so far from the list. While I don't like it as much as Original

    Sharp Vetiver with orange. When you first smell this fragrance that is the overwhelming scent that you get. I like the smell but there is something in the opening that kept me from loving it. I think Vetiver was just a bit too sharp without anything helping to curve it. The citrus in it just makes it slightly more harsh or adds even more of a bite.

I was worried that it was just going to be a letdown and I wouldn't be able to review whatever the scent was fairly. I'm so glad I just happen to be testing this Vetiver today. It's so good! It opens with bitter orange and green Vetiver with some slight spicy wood.

    Guys, we're onto something with this one. This is some really good stuff. This is completely unlike any other Vetiver I've smelled so far. It's such a unique take. It opens with bitter, earthy Vetiver but on top of that it has these citrus (maybe grapefruit and orange) and sea salt notes. Do you know when the ocean splashes against the coastline and sea foam sprays into the

    This stuff. Man. It opens with a bitter Vetiver almost medicinal smell. I get hints of something like cat urine mixed with spice, musk, and woods. As it dries down the cat urine / bitter note does lessen (but doesn't disappear) and you are left with more of the spicy, woody, musk. It smells like an old man.

    The only saving grace for this stuff on my skin was that it didn't project
