    Default The Best Vetiver Soap?

    Looking for a Vetiver soap, as Vetiver is my favorite scent.

    I was looking at Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire soap, but it is very costly. Are there any other recommendations?

    If you can find it, Guerlain Vetiver soap is wonderful (they don't make it anymore). It also comes in this very nice plastic shell/box that keeps it dry in the shower - very classy. Here's what mine looked like:



    The Guerlain 'vintage' Shower Gel is also very nice. I have not smelled the 'new' Shower Gel, which is very easy to find (seen it on Amazon, etc.)

    You might want to also try the one from L'Occitane (Shower Gel, not soap) but IMO it's not very vetiver-prominent.

    Also when we had the Basenotes New Orleans meetup in 2011, there was a store in N.O. called Bourbon French and they make a wonderful vetiver soap. Not sure if they have a online store, but I guess you could Google them.

    I think the smell of vetiver in a hot shower is a wonderful smell! I'd love to smell the Malle, but like you I'm scared at the price. $75!!

    I don't know if it's the 'best', but it's affordable and available at your local health stores

    Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Soap from Nubian Heritage, I have a few bars, I like it.

    I have some Crabtree and Evelyn - Vetiver and Juniper that smells really nice.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."
