    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

    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
