Please try Annick Goutal's Vetiver. It starts out quite salty with an iodine and seaweed note, but the note blends so harmoniously with the nature of vetiver, which itself can be a bit salty. This lends a dry, slightly ocean side beach quality to the top notes (but *nothing* like a traditional aquatic). This note continously fades over the first half an hour and the vetiver rears its smokey head, and the whole thing becomes deeper and yes, a bit smokey, but is still 'light' in a sense, it never feels heavy or overbearing. It smells very very natural, and even my mom, who generally doesn't like more of the crazy scents I have her sniff (she loves Angel and many simple mainstream choices), absolutely loved it. I didn't tell her anything about it except the name. Her first comment was "Wow, this smells really good, sort of like standing by the ocean," and then just kept saying it got better and better as time went on.
