    Turtle Vetiver Front by LesNez

    A reference vetiver scent. Turtle Vetiver Front starts out with a sharp, smokey, carbon-like -- almost raw vetiver note right out of the gate. While cedar is not listed in the official notes, I think there must be some in here as a supporting character to the vetiver but it never takes front stage, leaving that for the vetiver all the way. After about an hour the scent calms down a bit and mixes in the moss and ambergris creating a sublime dry-down. Projection is only average, but longevity is superb. I find Turtle Vetiver Front to be the perfect combination of vetiver in its raw form, while just refined enough to make it eminently wearable. With things shaping up this good in exercise two, I look forward to what Doyen is going to do with exercise 3, "Back." In the meantime, I immediately bought a bottle of Front... it is incredible smelling. 5 stars out of 5.
