Must have vetiver from Paraguay, which is smooth and grounding without that bbq grill smokiness one experiences with the Indonesia species of vetiver. I sampled this a while back; so glad Christine found a supplier of quality vetiver. This is the only place where you can buy the vetiver from Paraguay. Most companies only sale Haitian or Indonesian vetiver.
This is really excellent vetiver oil and a great value, considering. The topnote has a bit of an earthy-potato quality along with a pleasant woody sweetness but I’m finding that as it dries it’s impressively diffusive and woody-sweet with a nice clarity and smoothness (the Vetiver Bourbon has a richer topnote and is a bit less earthy, I find).
Who knew Paraguay produced such nice vetiver?
I was super surprised by this and so happy I sampled it. Locking the smoke or other typical facets I detected in it sheer beautiful green notes & a lovely white floral. This Vetiver would make a lovely addition for enhancing a Galbanum topped white floral perfume.
Very unusual light-type oil with strong grassy notes. There is a moderate valerian note at the beginning, which dissipates after 15 minutes and gives rise to very interesting, cooling grassy hey notes. Smells as I imagine the pungent, dried green vetiver plant leaves might smell. Very unusual and interesting vetiver but I like it. In the right formula it’s a 10/10 with a fascinating sour straw odor. Not as easily blendable as the bourbon, which is more straightforwardly fresh and floral. The bourbon is killer and I gave it 5 stars, so I guess I have to give this one 4 stars, since the first 15 minutes is a bit sour. But, I think it’s the perfect thing if you want some authentic grass in your vetiver, and I love it too. I do miss seeing the dark oil types offered.
Lovely Vetiver, dry and more fresh and green than heavy and earthy. To my nose this is much closer to Vetiveryl Acetate than to the Bourbon type.
