    This is a great quality of vetiver with a huge, rich topnote and more floralcy than rootiness. Not as substantive as some but much more diffusive.


    (Review from Paul Kiler) This is probably the nicest Vetiver I’ve smelled that is commonly available today. Vetiver Bourbon was the ruler by which all other Vetivers were measured, in times past. It’s what you see on old formulae. It is also most likely the Vetiver chosen for the mythical Guerlain Djedi perfume of 1924. I have a very small sample of a wonderful aged vintage vetiver distillation. This Bourbon Vetiver is the closest in odor profile to that old stock that I wish I could get so much more. I’m very pleased that PSH is carrying this Vetiver for us to enjoy…

    I have a few vetiver oils and this is my favorite so far.

    A beautiful vetiver that is very similar to (if not the same as) the vetiver in Guerlain’s famous “Vetiver”. Very clean and very elegant. Definitely the only vetiver you’ll need.

    A very nice quality of vetiver oil. For me, no better than the Haitian vetiver oil I already have, and not quite as tenacious either, but really extremely similar overall. An excellent, versatile material.

    Very rich… has a sharp smokey peanut smell to me

    This vetiver is smoky but not overwhelmingly so like Java varieties. It also has a roselike quality to me and blends seamlessly with rose materials.

    Yes, this is one of the nicest vetiver’s you’ll smell! I’ve had a couple others of late, but I keep going back to this one. Rich, earthy, cool, mossy, smoky … to me this evokes the scent of the great outdoors. Lends a wonderful masculine edge to scents in high doses, or a subtle grassiness when dialed down a bit. Excellent material to work with, and at a perfect price. Don’t hesitate.

    A beautiful and smooth long lasting vetiver that’s clean sweet and nutty without any harsh burnt terpenic facets

    I ???? this vetiver has a nice smokey woody earthy scent with a slight floral coumarin undertone, blended with my other Vetiver’s made a elegant Khus Attar absolutely banging.

    Full spectrum Vetiver. Rich, smooth, and earthy. A lovely vetiver.

    It has no earth and no roots. To me, it’s more like top-quality olive oil with a touch of rough skin.

    Stunning light type vetiver. I want like 1 gallon just to have it. I do miss seeing dark type, smoky vetivers available.

    This is the best Vetiver to me. Rich, warm, smooth and long lasting!

    I agree with Jamie, this Vetiver has the olfactory profile of Guerlain Vetiver, very clean and elegant, can make remarkable contributions to fragrances both used in traces and at higher doses. The best Vetiver I’ve ever had so far.

    I have used many. But nothing like this one. The pristine smell is phenomenal.

    This is the best Vetiver I have ever smelled. My last 4 fragrance I made I had to use this vetiver.

    Vetiver, vetiver, vetiver! It’s simply the best! And it does make a difference if that’s what you like.
