When I first tried Vetiver Extraordinaire, I immediately was worried as I got a decent amount of cumin in the top notes, and I don't like cumin in most scents... That said, I give Ropion credit for being able to balance the cumin so it blends with the vetiver gradually, and it becomes a seamless transition that actually works here. The vetiver itself is not overly smokey, but instead has almost a peppery lemon-like supporting accord that makes it quite distinctive and interesting. Longevity is excellent, but projection is minimal. All in all, a very strong effort by Ropion and Malle. One of the best vetiver scents on the market, IMO. Recommended to just about anyone.
