This is nice, but doesn't really hold my interest. I think I simply prefer my vetivers to be on the dry and earthy side, so sweet vetiver compositions just don't seem to work for me. I revisit this one every now and then, in hopes of rediscovering it, but unfortunately my opinion never really changes.
A restrained tonka gets the olfactory ball rolling, combined with a bright and light vetiver. This vetiver lacks any depth, earthiness or bite; it is more in the ephemeral side.
Other notes I get include a pleasant praline-milk-chocolate impression with a slightly hazel-nutty character that has a caramel-like undertone towards the end. Touches of a soft white smoke come and go.
I get soft sillage, limited projection, but a good nine hours of longevity on my skin, albeit only skin deep.
Pleasant as a scent for warmer autumn days, this creation is quite pleasant, light and bright. Unfortunately it is also anaemic and mostly somewhat generic. Still, fairly agreeable. 2.75/5
A brilliant vetiver, contemporary, concise and effective. Vetiver seated right next to tonka that cancel out each others' worst qualities. Green, light brown like early autumn, lightly toasted, nutty and slightly buttery without the fat; well-proportioned, sweetness without excess, and adorned with hints of praline. Diffusive, and reasonably tenacious; sumptuous and thoroughly charming.
