Reviews of Vétiver de Puig

Reading the reviews, I get the impression that everyone was smelling something different from whatever everyone else was smelling. I did a blind buy some time ago and I don't know if it has turned or what. It certainly doesn't smell like the vetiver I know and it's very pungent with beastly projection and sillage. I don't even know how to break down the notes, it's just not good in hot weather because it becomes very cloying in nothing flat. Not to knock Puig's products but I almost threw this one out.

Average Fougère

Some clever people at Delft University of Technology recently developed an algorithm to analyse the facial features of portraits. They scanned in the data points from many paintings and came up with something called The Next Rembrandt, a digitally generated picture based on the statistical average of the artist's work.

It shows a Dutch burgher in black hat and coat and large white ruff collar. The computer has perfectly reproduced the painter's technique and the picture looks like a real Rembrandt, but the subject appears to lack individuality - he's an everyman with no soul.

This may be an impressive feat of engineering but the folks at Puig have long since discovered the trick. It seems they took the vital statistics of Quorum and Paco Rabanne pour Homme from the safe, ran them through perfume recognition software along with vetiver oil, worked out the average and programed it into their compounding machine.

In most of the so called Vetiver perfumes (Guerlain, Creed, Lanvin, Carven, etc) the vetiver note is buried by a plethora of other notes that drown and do not let the"star note" of the perfume breathe normally.
Guerlain is more of a tobacco perfume rather than vetiver, Lanvin's too much juniper and cloves, Carven's too much tart lemon, Azzaro's pure vetiver is more of a spice scent, and I can go on and on with this.
Puig's is, on the other hand, a real Vetiver scent. Vetiver is dominant and you can really enjoy and appreciate what that note is all about. There are other notes in the perfume, but they support and compliment the main note and do not rob the spotlight from it.
I like those other vetiver perfumes (well, with the exception of the reformulated Carven), but if I want "VETIVER" I'll stick with Puig's anytime (too bad Indian Vetiver is not longer available).
Puig's is the most honest Vetiver in the market.
Sillage and longevity are adecuate

A balanced vetiver

The core freatures have been described well in previous reviews, and Bokaba is spot on in regard to the balance and this scent. On my skin it is more on the restrained side, less forceful and elemental than it's Molinard cousin but a classic vetiver nonetheless. A plus is the very decent longevity of over five hours.

Gorgeous long lasting vetiver scent from the Antonio Puig House in Barcelona, Spain.

Beautifully done in a masculine way; you can detect most notes if you pay attention carefully...

Ideal for any time of the day and an all year round scent...big thumbs up...!!!

Puig is a company I have great respect for because they make excellent fragrances and sell them at reasonable prices. Both Quorum and Agua Lavanda are among my favorite scents. So it pains me to say this about Vetiver de Puig: this just isn't a good fragrance at all.

The only vetiver I can smell in this comes in the top notes, and I can only smell it for about a minute or two. After that, Vetiver de Puig degenerates into a flat, flaccid smelling wood scent which smells to me like a watered down Fendi Uomo. I smell some boring wood notes and some patchouli in this, but little if any vetiver. I wouldn't even care too much about the lack of vetiver in this if the fragrance actually smelled good, but it doesn't smell good.

I first sampled this by sniffing it on my wrist, and I thought it was pretty good at first. But my opinion of this scent soon changed. Since then I've given Vetiver de Puig two full-day wearings, and both times I couldn't wait to take a shower and scrub it off my skin. I hate this fragrance.

Sorry, Puig. I think you're a great company, but you've produced a real stinkeroo here.
