    Default Vetiver + Iris - a fragrant craving...

    I've suddenly found myself enjoying vetiver, actually I've started craving it.
    What is it with these odd fragrance cravings?
    Anyway, I'm curious to find recommendations for vetiver + iris dominant fragrances.
    I'd prefer the vetiver to be a little more dominant than the iris.
    The iris can be powdery or buttery (or otherwise).
    Preferably not gourmands.

    Thanks in advance fellow addicts! :-)

    Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford fits this description very well.

    Eau Moderne by Thirdman really centers around iris, but it smells to me like a slight amount of vetiver in the base note. This might be what you are looking for. You can get a sample of this from Aedes, but I don't know who in Sydney would have it.

    Prada Infusion d' Vetiver also smells like the typical Prada iris base note paired with vetiver, however I could not find iris in the note pyramid. It is a very very dry vetiver fragrance that smells a little like their Infusion d' Homme but with vetiver all over the front of it. Dry salty vetiver and crisp clean finish.

    My favorite vetiver and iris is Sel de Vetiver. The iris doesn't really read like iris, it softens the vetiver and contributes to the salty thing that the frag does beautifully.

    Try Modoc by Xerjoff if you like the creamy side of iris.
