In keeping with this philosophy, Vetiverus opens dramatically with an exquisitely deep and mysterious vetiver, at once smoky and velvety rich, reminiscent of Les Nezâ€™s cult classic Turtle Vetiver Exercise 1. And rather than undercut that raw power, Vetiverus goes all in, with labdanum, leather, patchouli and clove serving to reinforce and extend the natural depth and warmth. A base of musk keeps everything standing upright, while the subtle sweetness of osmanthus flowers provides rich smoothness.
Plenty of great fragrances feature vetiver. But for the true vetiver enthusiast searching for an unapologetic, uncompromising showcase of the sublimely smoky, there is perhaps no substitute for Vetiverus.
