    Vétyver by Roger & Gallet


    Yes, of course this is an easy take on citrus and vetiver but there is something incredibly exotic and fascinating in this old school cologne, probably just set in our arcane memory about left over ages and daring men of the past. It conjures at me sunny cool mornings with those tall charming men coming to me in order to caress or cuddle. The juice is sharp, sunny, lemony, balanced, optimistic, fresh, clean and airy. The green aromatic elements and the note of tobacco-tonka are incredibly balanced and modulated, the vetiver is fluidy and lemony and a touch of amber and cedary soft powder close the round at the end. I detect some orange and some culinary herbs (may be mint, oregano, rosemary, thyme etc). Probably some restrained floral elements (geranium, carnation?) flank the central vetiver soul of the juice. The final touch of mildness is moderate, herbal and just a bit soapy. The duration is obviously faint as common to an eau de cologne.
