  1. Red Vetyver by Montale

    Red Vetyver is the newest fragrance launched this year by Montale. A spicy woody fragrance combining the notes of vetiver from Haiti, Moroccan cedarwood, patchouli, grapefruit, elemi, black pepper from Madagascar.

Based on both glowing and sketchy reviews, I decided to order 5 samples and see how they fared on paper and skin. My samples arrived - nice spray jobs that look to be about .38 caliber, and long enough to be classified as some kind of wildcat magnum. After smelling them, I would say that's about right.
