Oh my, this is a very, very fine scent.
If you have any interest at all in vetiver, then you must try this.
The scent starts with beautiful wood notes, along with the haunting traces of smoke from a distant fire. The combination is irresistible and lovely. At this point, the scent reminds me of Cartier's Declaration -- grassy, woody, but arguably leaner and drier which suits me. Those grassy woody notes are from the vetiver, perhaps in combination with cypress. Any scent with a good cypress note gets my commendation and this has that. I love the style: austere, intriguing, introspective yet at the same time warm and attractive. Not at all sweet or heavy, everything is handled with a light but sure touch. The juniper and cypress give a resinous or coniferous brightness from time to time. The scent settles into a very satisfying vetiver: lean and bright, and it wears well.
