Thank you for the super read, Jeff. Although I am not familiar with all of the vetivers in your competition, of the five I do own I think your critique/synopsis is dead level.
Tried purchasing same kit in July or August. Enjoyed parallax442's mini-reviews so much I printed them when socalwoman listed them in another thread. I understand his wife will be re-opening Liquid Art soon.
I'll be staying tuned to find out which vetiver claims victory.
