    Default Bentley's latest - Wild Vetiver!

    Any European Basenoters tried this one yet? Thoughts positive or negative? Thanks.

    Notes actually look good for once. They've had a chain of ho hum releases though so seem to just keep on cranking them out which makes me pause.

    There are two others in the Beyond range:

    Bentley Fragrances introduces Bentley Beyond – The Collection, its first range of exclusive fragrances for men and women. The collection of three scents, which will be followed by further additions, matches peerless ingredients with exotic destinations.

    Composed by three rising young master perfumers, the first trio of Bentley Beyond – The Collection takes us to three different countries, each associated with a fragrance note and a color theme inspired by Bentley Motors’ exclusive palette. A trip to Acapulco, Mexico, with Exotic Musk, an ambery musky composition by Mathilde Bijaoui; a voyage to Goa, India, with Majestic Cashmere, a woody fragrance by Julie Massé; an odyssey in Java, Indonesia, with Wild Vetiver, an aromatic woody scent by Sidonie Lancesseur.

    Exotic Musk is inspired by the spectacular vistas of a legendary Mexican resort by the Pacific Ocean. A silky haze of musk evokes the sensuality of Acapulco nights. Its opens with the notes of Orris, Ambery Woods. In the heart of the scent are Orcanox, Ambranone, Tonka Bean and Musk, White Wood form its base.

    Goa is represented through Majestic Cashmere. Julie Massé evokes it by weaving precious ingredients from all over the world Incense, Coriander, Ambrette Absolute, Orris Absolute, Cashmere Woods, Tonka Bean, Vetiver Bourbon, Orcanox™, Labdanum Resinoid, Musk, Patchouli.

    Wild Vetiver is inspired by the ambiance of lush rainforests and ancient stone temples of Java. Top notes are Bergamot, Pepper; Heart notes are Verbena, Vetiver; Base notes are Amberwood, Birch.

    The flacon and packaging of Bentley Beyond -The Collection are given the attention to detail as Bentley cars receive. The handstitched leather cap evokes the interior of a Bentley car while the faceted flacon is inspired by the signature cut-crystal glass headlights of the Continental GT. The stability of the heavy 400-gram bottle is ensured by a thick glass base. The legendary Bentley emblem is engraved on the silver metal shoulders of the flacon.

    The UK retail price for each 100ml bottle is £180.
    RRP is stupid, if my supplier gets them in at around a third of that I'll add them to the splits but not a chance at full retail.

    They all sound interesting to me. But yea, not at that price.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    The perfumer has done some of Kilian's most interesting and distinctive new releases. This could be a somewhat unique or at least distinctive vetiver. If so, then I hope our vetiver fiends get a hold of it. Vetiver needs novelty!

    Bentley is the first celebrity/sports/automotive brand I've seen try to get into the prestige/luxury tier game. They either have some big cojones or are just really daft. Lamborghini and Jaguar scents end up at Marshalls all the time!
    oh look, I have a signature

    Anything with vetiver has my attention. Though i will wait for the consensus before biting the bullet blind buying a Bentley at retail price.

    There’s still ‘hope’ this one suffers a similar fate and can be had for next to nothing. Sidonie Lancasseur made one of By Kilian’s most popular scents so this might not be some dressed up mall juice after all. No guarantees though. We’ve seen what happened with Elie Saab’s single note collection with star perfumer Kurkdjian.
