The Summer Vetiver
Originally I tested the Agua Fresca Extreme, as it was recommended by some esteemed perfumers. Unfortunately he did not agree with me, his notes were too penetrating for me. That's also because sometimes this forced aquatic freshness doesn't get any applause from me. So I took the perfume off. Until I was recommended the flanker Agua Fresca Vetiver.

I had two thoughts: green plus aquatic freshness? I could like that, GIT suits me. Of course not comparable but green-fresh. The second thought came to me while studying the ingredients: rhubarb, leather and vetiver? I know that one! And I like it! Tomo Vetiver uses these ingredients to create a formidable fragrance. So should this fragrance be perceived in a similar way, but fresh? Yes. Partly, if you only look at the beginning.

At the beginning this synthetic, fresh note starts, is quickly absorbed by the grassy vetiver, which is only fully appreciated later, it takes two hours. What smells so tart and slightly acidic here is the rhubarb. Anyone who has ever cooked jam with rhubarb will recognize the smell. To be honest, I never have, but I was there a lot, so I can judge that. ;)
This note stands out again under the orange blossom etc, it smells fresh green. Gradually it becomes more earthy, slightly bitter. The vetiver reveals itself more and more in its austere beauty, is enmeshed by cedar and leather, which one can hardly consciously smell. Nevertheless, one can sense their effect, because vetiver appears sublime here and there, the cedar helps it to do so.
Enough words about a summer scent that unfortunately has a bad sillage and does not last very long. But for the price and for the fact that it is a summer scent, one can criticize this but for the purchase evaluation these are hardly more than marginal notes. The importance is too marginal. In this respect, I am purely concerned with the fragrance and I have to admit that this is a great refreshment for little money

Iridescent green leather
Let's face it, what qualities does a good summer fragrance need? It should be fresh, cool and give the feeling of carrying the shade of a small forest by the sea, but it should also be independent, radiate a personal touch and thus stand out from the mass of fresh fragrances. And of course it shouldn't fly away within a very short time "Agua Fresca Vetiver" combines all these qualities. The fresh citrus notes in the opening are accompanied by tangy spicy and green notes, with neroli and clove dominating at best, the flowers serving at best for the scent coloring, but are actually not perceptible at all. Also the sparkling fresh Vetiver is present from the beginning, has in this fragrance rather a striking cypress character.
After only a few minutes the impression turns into leather. What makes "Agua Fresca Vetiver" special and unique, however, is the interplay of the leather with the cedar and the earthy notes, which, together with the vetiver, determines the scent for a long time, distinguishes it strikingly from other compositions, contrasts it brightly and darkly skilfully, like deep, warm rays of sunshine the leaves and needles shimmering green in this dense, cool, still dewy cedar grove, on a summer morning, which is just cool enough to wear a leather jacket. This impression lasts a good four to six hours on the skin, on clothes all day long. The Sillage is approximately one hour long on arm-length before it withdraws something nearer to the body. Ambergris and patchouli serve here at best as fixation, are hardly noticeable even in fade-out.
I found my summer scent here by blind purchase. There are hardly any other possibilities than such, as one has to order the fragrance from Spain, but it is so unbelievably inexpensive that one cannot really do much wrong. Especially since the "Agua Fresca Vetiver" can easily hold a candle to much higher-priced scents!

Earthy vetiver
Nice vetiver scent, fresh, earty, and in the end very soappy and clean. Is a everyday perfume, ideal for office, never overwhelming, you can abuse of it because is very soft after 30 minutes. I've tried the vetiver from Guerlain, but i prefeer this one, and is cheaper, 20euros for a 100ml bottle.

Overall I can't seem to like this fragrance. There's this old ash/soil tincture accord that translates into a dark, cold, unromantic scent.

I describe it as an aquatic vetiver. The projection is very soft as it is indeed a very good vetiver for the price.
