    Default Haiti Vetiver vs. Java Vetiver vs. Sri Lanka Vetiver

    Hi

    I want to buy Vetiver EO to start experimenting with Vetiver. I buy my AO and EO from Hexapus/Hekserji. They have Vetiver from Haiti, Java or Sri Lanka. Can someone tell me the differences between these three vetiver types?

    Cheers
    NGP

    Haitian is Greener, fresher.
    Javanese is smoky.
    Sri Lanka is deeper than Haitian, and not smoky.
    Indian is closer to Sri Lankan, but Different. Ruh Khus is closer to Vetiver Absolute.
    Central and South American is close to Indian.

    Thank you for your quick anwser.
    I assume Guerlain Vetiver uses the "greener" Haitian Vetiver right?
    I Would like to have a deep woody and warm vetiver. Do you recommend the Javanese or Sri Lanka Vetiver?

    Sri Lankan. I recommend the Vetiver "Bourbon" type sold at Perfumer Supply House for this odor profile.
    It's my favorite Vetiver of this type, that I have handpicked for PSH to sell.
