Surinam vetiver essential oil, Eden Botanicals
This one's a strange one. While there are some vague parallels with the Javanese and Madagascan varieties, it's a lot less smoky but with the Marmite yeastiness ramped up a few notches - so much that it smells notably salty. As it evolves, the saline aspect is still evident, with creamy green nuances peeking through.
Overall, it's an interesting specimen, best aimed at those who are looking for a vetiver oil with a salty kick.
