Very Warm, Dry, & Leathery

“Vetiver - deep, rich and naturally distinctive. Peerless - redolent of smokey, burning embers.” - Roja Dove.

Vétiver Olfactory Description

Vetiver is a grass that can grow up to two meters tall. Anchored deep in the ground, vetiver develops a dense network of slender hairy roots that can also reach two meters in length. The roots are washed and dried in the shade before distillation to collect the Vetiver essential oil. The very finest comes from Réunion. Whilst it is considered as a masculine note, it is used in nearly 40 per cent of all feminine compositions, providing a backbone on which to work the other materials. Its scent is warm and dry - it also conveys earthy, leathery, and smoky aspects. Many people refer to this odour as green; this is because the first commercial Vetiver fragrance, by Carven, came in a green box. Guerlain followed suit, as did Roger and Gallet, Lanvin, and Givenchy. This tradition continues today with many new launches.
