    *note: I have worn this fragrance previously before testing*

    This is a more wearable Encre Noire. After having tested a ton of Vetivers I appreciate this fragrance even more. It adds citrus to Vetiver in a unique way that no other Vetiver fragrance does. I struggled with how to rate the scent but I had to go with my gut and I actually like this one more now than I did a couple

    This is citrus and Vetiver. Initial spray is this bright blast of sweet almost boozy citrus - completely different from any other citrus I've smelled paired with a Vetiver - along with fresh green leaf Vetiver. The citrus scent might not even be orange, but it's not lemon either. I'm not sure what citrus it is but paired with this fresh green Vetiver they just smell great together. As
