I'm a newbie to fragrance and a few of the things in my collection have strong vetiver notes.
I like it, but at times it has a sharp almost ammonia kind of smell to my nose. Is this the nature of vetiver, or is it just my chemistry?
I find at times the vetiver in Givenchy Gentleman overpowers the patchouli, and some times when I can smell the two notes together plainly and evenly they combine for an effect similar to an open can of latex house paint. Most of the time, it is pleasant.
