Le Vetiver Eau de Toilette

SKU: 21708

In French, the word “vetiver” rhymes with L’Homme Vert, which means The Green Man. He was a legendary character whom the ancients Celts believed lived deep in the forests of Armorica, an ancient region including Brittany. They thought of him as a western Dionysus, a magician who would wake up nature in the spring by blowing life back into it after the harshness of winter.

 

Notes:
Top: Mandarin, Grapefruit, Guinea Orange & Neroli.
Middle: Cloves, Nutmeg, Caribbean Pepper.
Base: Javanese Vetiver, Virginia Cedar, Myrrh, Incense & Blond Tobacco.

A true gentleman’s fragrance, Le Vetiver radiates both sensuality and refinement. It begins with a citrus-like freshness, with notes of mandarin orange, grapefruit and orange blossom. These soon give way to a perfect balance of East meets West, evoking the adventurer who frequents the palace of the Sultan of Yogyakarta with Java vetiver, clove and nutmeg; and a Wild West cowboy through blond tobacco and Virginian cedar wood. Finally, frankincense and myrrh add a mysterious touch with hints of Christmas Eve, before the fragrance cools off with the spiciness of the Caribbean pepper.
