    A perfectly solid Vetiver. Opens with a semi sharp blast of Vetiver and spice woods. As it dries down the bitter blast at the beginning disappears and you are left with an earthy Vetiver with spice and wood. Comes off as a classic Vetiver. Not world shattering awesome but good.

    Overall performance was good. Projection and longevity was as expected. If I don't have a lot to say about

    Opens pungent, dries down and disappears. I went to visit my family today and no one liked this scent. I had a lot of trouble picking out specific notes for this but there was something in the opening that was just pungent, almost (but not quite) cat urine like. As it dried down this note softened and I will say it's not the worst Vetiver I've smelled, but I found it below average from what I've

    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. Surprisingly it dries down to a pretty clean

    I was really kind of dreading trying another scent right after having such a great experience with Sel de Vetiver. 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.
