Happy 50th anniversary Vetiver!
(yes I know it's been reformulated but let's not get too technical, shall we?)
A signature scent, especially in warmer weather. It lasts long on me, the drydown is excellent. Mid-afternoon and I'm still sniffing my inner elbow. Wonderful stuff.
I will forever be indebted to BN for introducing me to this frag.
Two notes: I am over 40 and not into the current 'marine' scents. I can't even seem to carry off GIT.
Also, I saw this described as 'bitter and nasty' in a neg review; which can also be said of me. Maybe that's why I love it.
