    Coeur de Vétiver Sacré by L'Artisan Parfumeur

    To have vetiver in its name is a bit ridiculous with this one. While vetiver is a note in this fragrance, it certainly isn't a dominating one. Not in the opening, not in the middle, nor the base. Although there is vetiver there, you can smell it a little in the beginning, more so in the middle though, it never quite makes its way to center stage.

    L'Artisan's signature spicy notes are in this, but this is mostly dominated by dried fruits. I get plums, dates and apricot, as well as blueberries, pomegranate, and juniper berries. Take Micheal Kors for men's opening; add some blueberries. Add a little, and I do mean, a litte bit of vetiver. The result - Coeur de Vétiver Sacré. Projection is light, and longevity is poor for a L'Artisan fragrance; I get about 4 or 5 hours. Overall, a disappointment.
