    This is straight Vetiver root. Opens slightly bitter but pretty quickly dries down into a sweet, almost nutty, Vetiver. People might read this and think "Vetiver Tonka" and there is something to that idea however this lacks the smoothness. Instead it has more of a sweet note and the Vetiver stays more prominent than in Tonka. This is a good scent that I think gets better

    I had no idea what to expect with this one, I had never even heard of it before trying. Upon initial spray I was met with a pleasant green, soapy Vetiver. Very much in the same vein as something like Original Vetiver. The biggest difference is this one has something that is slightly woody in it. Nothing overpowering but just a slight maybe cedar note. I just happen to be applying this after

    At this point I feel like I've smelled this style of Vetiver a ton. Citrus, Spicy, Woody. Perfumers seem to love this combination. This opens up with slightly bitter citrus, some spicy wood, and maybe something slightly green. Where this scent starts to differ from the typical citrus, spicy, Vetiver is as it dries down this powdery note starts to appear. This does help to smooth out the scent

    This name perfectly fits this fragrance. It's an earthy Vetiver but instead of being bitter this one has a slightly creamy, slightly sweet scent on top. It really comes off velvety smooth. I can definitely see the hardcore Vetiver lovers feeling this doesn't have enough of that bitter Vetiver. For me, it's a nice different take. There's only so many differences you can have with

    This is another citrus, spicy, woody, earthy Vetiver. It's very much in the same vein as Cezch & Specke Vetiver Vert. The biggest different to my nose is Vetyver 46 doesn't have as much bitter orange and Vetiver in the opening. Instead it relies more on the spicy wood - cedar or sandalwood. In my mind these two fragrances are like different sides to the same coin and which you like more will
