Kaizen1972's Review of Vétiver (original) by Carven

I don't dislike it, but the poor longevity compels me to give it a neutral rating.

The bottle I have does not resemble the above picture; it's the tall, clear, roundish bottle that comes in a green box. The scent itself starts out with great promise: Classic verbena and spice greenness, with a men's fougere vibe. But after an hour or so, GONE. :(

My bottle is quite old, so it may have become less potent after over a decade sitting around.
