Latest Reviews of Vetiver Elemi

Dirty pretty vetiver

Vetiver Elemi was a pleasant surprize. On paper, it smells like a luminous, citrusy-clean vetiver. However, the second I sprayed VE to my skin, an unexpected dirty cumin note burst through that bright opening. It's briefly reminiscent of body odour but then shifts into L'Artisan P Timbuktu territory.

As the scent dries down, the cumin recedes into the background, blending into the vetiver which develops a grassy, earthy and slightly smoky character. Prettier, faint and abstract florals and woods also soften up the scent. Lasts roughly four hours before drying down to a cleaner, woodsy skin scent.

Gentle enough for the office without being boring, very affordably priced, and manufactured without animal products, parabens and the like. Recommended to vetiver fans unless you don't do well with cumin.
