It's funny you should mention that lpp, because one of the things I thought I got in the sample of Bourbon vetiver so kindly sent to me by Trebor is hot plastic.
I'm comparing it with my own Haitian sample and another also sent by Trebor and the only way I find I can describe these is through comparison.
It's quite subtle when it goes on, and slightly sweeter than either Haitian. The hot plastic/rubber edge comes in the dry down, which is otherwise very smooth and without the flinty notes of the Haitian, or, for that matter, the deep, baked biscuity ones. More creamy. There's also something that reminds me of a wool sweater - very comforting (or maybe that's beacuse all of my sweaters smell of vetiver!).
Overall, very nice, soft and subtle. I feel there's less going on that with the Haitian, but maybe that's because I'm more used to the Haitian and haven't tuned into the subtlety of the Bourbon. More testing required!
Edit - now I'm trying it for a second day, against my own Haitian (left wrist, right wrist), I'm getting the same flinty notes as with the Haitian - my favourite bit. Perhaps not as much freshness or citrus notes, but at the same time, less of the, less pleasant, furniture polish that I have with the Haitian.
Truly, vetiver is wonderful stuff!
