My Ratings: Scent - 4/10. Overall- 3/10.

Opens pungent, dries down and disappears. I went to visit my family today and no one liked this scent. I had a lot of trouble picking out specific notes for this but there was something in the opening that was just pungent, almost (but not quite) cat urine like. As it dried down this note softened and I will say it's not the worst Vetiver I've smelled, but I found it below average from what I've smelled so far. The saving grace of this fragrance is. . .

Performance was really poor. It became a skin scent within 30 minutes and stayed that way for 3-4 hours before it was barely detectable. I literally applied it in the morning, again a couple hours later as I left for my brothers house, and again at my brothers house and it just never lasted. This fragrance is for someone who likes Goutal's Vetiver. This isn't as pungent as that one but there's some similar note in it. Maybe it's just a too bitter Vetiver that doesn't work for me.

My Wife's Rating: Scent - 3/10.

She did not like this one. She joked that if I got sleepy while driving all I'd need to do is sniff. But she said the saving grace of it all was even though it stunk she didn't have to worry about smelling it because it disappears after applying it. It just got worse from there and most of the day was spent cracking jokes about me wearing this scent not only by my wife but my brother and his wife too.
