Rashômon's Review of Vétiver by Christian Dior

Dior's Vetiver is another quality, minimalistic vetiver scent, clean and crisp, slightly soapy and delicate. A brief uplifting tangy fruity top leads to an elegant vetiver drydown. The vetiver note is grassy, slightly smoky and bitter but it softens with time becoming sweeter with the gentlest coffee note added to dress its solo with a nutty accent. Truth to be told none of the La Collection Privée has been a major release and although well-executed and masterfully blended the compositions are somewhat uninspiring. Vetiver doesn't fly over the clouds either and is more or less a flawless but timid treatment of this majestic note. Thence it is a reliable and agreeable fragrance in a mundane way overall.
