The Carven was nothing but disappointment for me. *I couldn't wait until I could find someone I knew in a far away city who needed a gift. *It is like water. *No sillage, no lasting ability, no punch, nothing to wake you up so you can skip the coffee. *Just plain a puddle of water caught in plastic tarp kind of scent. *Of all the vetivers it resembles Lanvin's recent Vetyver the most--they're both so dull they embarass the vetiver genre.
