    Vetiver Bourbon by Miller Harris

    Vetiver Bourbon is named for the specific variety of vetiver - bourbon vetiver - that originates from Reunion Island. This tiny island floats east off Madagascar in the Indian Ocean and was renamed from Bourbon Island after the French Revolution.

    Miller Harris Vetiver Bourbon is a deep green salty vetiver that when combined with oakmoss, patchouli and amber has a distinctly oriental feel. The base has a slight licorice bite to add character to the thick green scent. Patchouli is barely noticeable but adds to the clean darkness of this scent. This vetiver is best applied to the body so it is not smelled too close up. I think this juice has an almost narcotic smell. It is powerful but enticing.

    For many years the special group of Miller Harris fragrances called "Nouvelle Collection" were unavailable in the U.S. but are now being distributed by MiN New York (I am not affiliated) at their shop in Soho, NYC and also soon to be available to the rest of us. My favorites from this extra special group from Miller Harris are Bourbon Vetiver (vetiver oriental), Fleurs de Sel (ocean leather) and En Sens de Bois (orris incense).
