    About time Diptyque set their sites on Vetyver. I wait with baited nose.

    This sounds really good, the citrus, florals, spices and woods certainly make it sound like it won't be your typical vetiver, Can't wait to try this one! Thanks for the tip mtgprox05!

    That's really interesting. Their limited candle release for the holidays was called Beauty & the Beast (it sounds cooler in french), and was a 2-candle set. Both were based on vetiver - one bright and floral and citrus and the other ridiculously animalic. This sounds more like the Beauty candle. Though I suspect many of the hardcore here would have preferred the Beast...

    When I read the description before getting to the notes, I was praying for this to turn out to resemble Vetiver Pour Elle. I wish orange blossom was in the notes. Oh well...

    Thanks for the info.

    I love vetiver and cannot wait to see what Diptyque has done with it.
    This just might be a blind buy!

    I wonder who the perfumer is?

    This is the rare time i hope its not Olivia G. -- i want it to not be super light and to have good lasting power.

    Looking at the note list both intrigues me and discourages me. Which of the listed notes will dominate the blend, I wonder? Grapefruity cedar-vetiver is something I'd flee from; floral-spicy vetiver sounds delightful.

    I smelled this at the Diptyque store a while back and it wasn't what I expected at all, at least on paper. If you're familiar with Diptyque's L'Eau - it's their signature first scent, kind of like a mix of orange and cloves over Old Spice-esque powdery florals. Vetyverio came across as kind of a vetiver flanker to L'Eau. Most of the notes listed make sense when you think of it this way.

    Notes:
    mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, bergamot, ylang ylang, Turkish rose, geranium, vetiver, carrot seeds, nutmeg, clove and cedar
    The mandarin, grapefruit, lemon, bergamot, and clove are the famous Diptyque L'Eau clovey citrus notes, while the flowers are the powdery floral notes.

    This really just leaves the nutmeg, vetiver, and cedar to combine into the vetiver note (vetiver almost always seems to be mixed with nutmeg).

    If you're expecting fresh and modern, this isn't it. But if the thought of a barbershoppy classic vetiver (in the vein of a more vetiver-centric Raquets Formula) gets you drooling, you should really track down a sniff...

    Thanks Rogalal! Vetiver L'Eau sounds interesting to me. I've always found L'Eau a little simplistic - a hot cinnamon candy, unadorned - so adding a vetiver base might give it some of the depth I find lacking.

    At first I was really apprehensive about L'Eau too, but after an hour or two on the skin I smell less cloves and almost all dried rose pedals. Then I've thought those pedals dried down to some musk. Really liked the stuff, but out of the bottle it has not been to my liking for sure.

    Back to the vetiver. I'm looking forward to this, and hope one of the B&M Diptyque carrying stores in my city will pick it up. But jeez, the price on it. Not out of the niche ballpark, but my dear friends and whippersnappers, I was gathering scents when ten years ago a 100ml bottle of Diptyque was $62, and L'Artisan was about ten bucks more. To see one of my favorite houses, Diptyque, at twice the cost--ooof--makes me conservative.

    I got my tester last week for review purposes and I am liking this one after my initial impression.
    I agree with rogalal's assessment that this belongs to the more classic barbershop vetivers.
    I am on first sniff finding the spices to be very prominent and that is differentiating it from L'Eau for me.
    It will take another couple of wears for me to completely figure it out but I am trending towards liking it.

    SMM - clarification please: I think L' Eau is super spicy (which I thoroughly enjoy). Is Vetyverio more spicy than L' Eau. I guess I'm wondering is it L' Eau with vetiver?

    I sniffed it in SpaceNK last week. Now I am not a big fan of vetiver, it has to be beaten down to behave by other notes or it turns swamp thing on me.

    The Vetyverio, I didn't really get spicy at all(this was on a card), but fresh herbal and floral. But then again it could be my idea of what is spicy.

    Thumbs up Re: New Fragrance: Diptyque Vetyverio

    It is a nice scent, dominant, at least on me, vetiver and rose geranium, but , IMHO, it is not anything new. I prefer others fragrances from DIPTYQUE

    I was all set to splash out on this one - I've never been a huge vetiver fan (I find Guerlain Vetiver - both new and vintage - to be dreadful), but figured Diptyque might just be able to pull a decent one off, especially when I saw the pyramid. I nearly bought it blind from a local SpaceNK yesterday, but gave it a test anyway just to see. I'm glad I did - to my nose it's another disappointing vetiver. So I didn't buy it, obviously.

    Vetyverio is not more spicy than L'Eau I had them on side-by-side last night.
    I am definitely picking up the nutmeg and clove along with the geranium and rose in the heart. It seems like I am getting more of that than others who have tried this scent.
    I also wouldn't describe it as L'Eau with vetiver now that I have had them both on at the same time. L'Eau's spices are the core of that fragrance. Vetiver is the core of Vetyverio. Now that I have worn it a bit it feels more close in style to Tam Dao where the sandalwood there is used to play off three different sets of notes throughout the development. Vetyverio does much the same on my skin with the heart of it being the most interesting phase of it.

    I finally picked up my sample. It goes on with a very dominant grapefruit note, I get the nutmeg, too. The drydown ends up a rather typical, sour vetiver. Nice, but nothing new to report with this one.

    I wasn't expecting much of this due some of the tepid responses above, but it's really quite good. Outstanding, even. Fresh, floral, turning a bit bright as the heart develops. And the heart, as SMM notes, is the best part. It really comes alive and radiant after an hour.

    OK - so I finally have gotten a sample of this and have given it two full wearings.

    I'm extremely disappointed.

    The scent is very citrus prominent in the top notes, I immediately smelled the mandarin and was reminded of those lovely Eau's that Diptyque released in a trio a couple years back. Nice, refreshing...spicy. But hey - this is a vetiver scent not an eaux cologne.

    Once it heats up on skin, I can smell the transparent grassiness of the vetiver, the potpourri-like texture of the rose / spice combination and a slight whiff of that unique vegetable/mud/dirt accord that is most likely the carrot seed. The vetiver can ONLY be smelled when I bury my nose where I sprayed the scent, otherwise the overall combination is a very floral, musky green scent. Typical Diptyque, eh?

    I like florals. In fact, I like the idea of florals with vetiver (remember when I was searching for one on that thread months ago?). But Vetyverio does not satisfy this floral and vetiver lover at all. I found it boring, weak and ridiculously thin.

    I'm so glad I didn't blind buy this.
