    This is definitely a Vetiver fragrance. It opens with bitter Vetiver that to my nose almost smells medicinal, smoke or incense, and some slight woods. The opening is my least favorite part of it but as it dries down within 30 mins or an hour the smoke/incense lessens and the Vetiver and woods pick up - this to me smells better than the opening. Then it changes again in that 1-2 hour range

    This is a good Vetiver. However when I first smelled it I immediately was reminded of Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver. They both do the same thing of taking earthy Vetiver and making it fresh, mixing it with some citrus, some slight spice, and mellowing it out with some florals. Roja Vetiver honestly comes off derivative to me. The biggest difference I noticed was the addition of Rose made this scent

    This is the most unique Vetiver I've ever smelled. The initial spray of it is magical. It's completely out of this world. You get this green note Vetiver (not necessarily fresh leaf or earthy/rooty more green) mixed with suede (very specifically suede not leather) and spices. I don't know how many of you are familiar with Bay Rum aftershave but that's sort of the feel I get from this. Bay Rum

    This is good stuff guys. Really good stuff. This opens with a very similar inky Vetiver to Encre Noire. The difference being if EN is 100% ink this is slightly milder than that. Not weaker, milder. As this dries down the inky Vetiver fades away and you're left with a smokey, earthy Vetiver. Slightly, I don't have the words to explain it but, slightly smoother than EN. If Encre Noire is a hard

    A perfectly acceptable if not completely inspiring Vetiver. Slight earthy Vetiver (not bitter), pepper, slight citrus, slight woods, and maybe some florals in there. You'll notice I used the word slight quite often in describing this fragrance. That's because nothing in it pops or grabs your attention, it almost feels watered down if that makes any sense. I could visibly
