clamnole's Review of Vétiver Extraordinaire by Editions de Parfums Frederic Malle

THE BEST Vetiver I've ever worn, period.

Green vetiver root, earthy, salty and slightly sweet. A hint of clove underneath and a faint wood tone round this off, but natural green vetiver root is the main theme.

VE would appeal to any vetiver lover, whether they be fans of the dark dirty style or the bright grass style, VE has aspects of both. Could be worn anywhere for any occasion, in all but the coldest of days. Average sillage and longevity on a 75 degree and dry day, but I expect it would really shine in higher temperatures.

When I finish my decant, I am definitely going to purchase a bottle. Thumbs Up.
