Reviews of Vetiver 46

Inky, Semi-dry Vetiver that is bona fide vegetal and bitter and is served with a lot oriental smokiness. It actually opens quite freshly, with all the bright green goodness of grass or ferns, but then settles into the thicker and smokier bases. This is not for impressing your date. Not everyone loves herbal/vegetal stuff. This is for the green-heads, or those who are tired of smelling the usually nice friendly stuff, and want to stimulate your olfactory with something hippieish. Still, give this a chance beyond the initial blasts because the sillage scent (the trail/smelling from a distance) and dry down (Church Incense/frankincense + Ambery sandalwoody-sweet vanilla) HOURS later is much friendlier and attractive. Think the bright green yet smokier version of Encre Noir by Lalique (which is a really Dark Green but very transparent/thin one). This is a Swamp Thing. Smell like a horticulturist any day. I would genre this a Green Amber/ Herbal Smokey Oriental. “la bête verte “

Crisp, green, wet vetiver goodness with a woody twist.

Le Labo's Vetiver 46 has been a long-time welcome presence at the local Nordstrom's men's fragrance counter. Not too complicated and has some depth and character.

Vetiver 46 is an innovative take on vetiver--it is certainly there, but it has been pounded into a joss stick, stuffed into a thurible and bound into a smudge bundle. This is an incense scent, first and foremost--dry, woody and grassy. There is an an almost soapy, fresh top note and then smoky, incensy woods and grasses for the duration. Quality and distinction.

Similar to the leather from Le Labo, this vetiver just does enough for a thumbs up, while still being somewhat disappointing. I recently tried the vetiver from the Elie Saab Essences collection, and that one hit the spot. Le Labo does its own thing in a way that's interesting, without always hitting the heights. This is a darker, brooding vetiver.

You're a piece of pork. You're soaked in a pork rub made out of vanilla extract and baby powder, then smoked over a grassy fire and marinated with cold cucumber slices. Hey, don't ask me, it's what the customer ordered. Vetiver 46 by Le Labo.

ive been goin back and forward in my mind about pulling the trigger on this 1 because its a blend of 2 frags... royal oud and encre noire...has a slight aroma of some distant burning woods..a damn good frag..not too harsh
