    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

    This stuff has some funk! Opens with a citrus blast, floral notes, some bitter Vetiver, spicy wood, and musk. As it dries down the citrus, woods, and Vetiver all kind of fade away and you're kinda just left with this floral body odor smell. I've got a spot on me that I applied about 9 hours ago and all I smell is funk. I really, well there's no good way to put this. I hate this

I found myself becoming self-conscious at different times during the day because while walking in public I kept lifting the back of my hand up to smell the scent. To me, this is a more refined Guerlain Vetiver. Slightly citrusy, slightly woody, just enough earthy

    When I smell this I'm really reminded of Prada Infusion de Vetiver. They were so close that I had to actually check the notes to see what I was smelling. They both have that fresh Vetiver, a pepper note, and they both use either ginger or citrus. This is a fresh cologne. The opening is really good and the drydown stays fresh without feeling soapy. I think my excitement for this would

    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
