The freshly brewed vetiver
Dior's Vetiver was released in 2010 and the perfumer behind the fragrance is François Demachy. Vetiver as a fragrance is very versatile. It ranges from fresh-sweet to soapy to earthy-herbaceous. I would describe Dior's vetiver as green-spicy. The interesting thing about this fragrance is that it combines the eponymous vetiver here with coffee. This is a combination I haven't seen or smelled that often. In the opening is briefly a tart and juicy grapefruit, which makes way for the earthy vetiver after a few moments and still resonates a little in the background and sprays an oh so small touch of freshness.

Here in this case, it is a very earthy, dry and tends to be rather tart vetiver. The coffee can be smelled out in my opinion rather in the form of an earthy note. This is considered as a single note for me, rather the tart coffee grounds from the grinder and not a sweetened latte from Starbucks. In places, something here reminds me of the smell of walnuts. Tends to resonate with something slightly bitter in the background, which makes the fragrance even more interesting for me personally. The vetiver of Dior has taken over the throne in the genre of vetiver fragrances with me. Since I personally like rather tart fragrances, the vetiver of Dior can score here absolutely. While genre classics like the Guerlain Vetiver can also convince me, these lack the unique selling point in my opinion. Here, however, the symbiosis of the green vetiver with the earthy coffee notes is so perfectly staged that the fragrance leaves nothing to be desired for me as a vetiver fan. In the later drydown, the vetiver also adds a slightly minty or menthol note. This has on me almost a medicinal note, which as stupid as it may sound, has an immensely calming effect on me. That works then almost as if one would wrap the fragrance in a cocoon of security.

The performance is with 8-10 hours at a very good level. That leaves nothing to be desired with me. I come with it without problems over a complete workday and need only 2-3 sprays.

The flacon as well as the sprayer are on known Priveé level. Just these sprayers I would honestly never want to miss again. Since other brands in the price range can definitely cut off a slice from.

Currently, the Vetiver is only about the boutiques in France to refer. Statements that the fragrance was discontinued are therefore not true. After consultation with German boutiques it was confirmed to me that the smell can be sent also on order into German boutiques. On the online page of Dior, however, the fragrance is not listed.

I was very lucky to be able to test and review this scent now that it appears to be discontinued. Dior's answer to Chanel's Sycomore perhaps? I hope you enjoy my take on this original prive collection scent, and thanks for watching.

Hello Vetiver - I love you.
I have been looking for THE Vetiver scent for a long time. First I ended up at Encre Noire.
Although I've read a lot of negative things about this fragrance (dark, earthy, musty, old books,...), I actually thought that it smells quite ok - but one thing I've been thinking about, ISO E Super. My investigative research (I googled) confirmed my fear. Encre Noire consists of 55% ISO E Super. Since I'm not a big fan of the molecule (as long as you smell it as hard as Terre D'Hermes), I dropped Encre Noire like a hot potato and started looking for *my* vetiver scent.

It did not take long until Dior Vetiver was suggested to me. Nevertheless I tried myself through all my colleagues (but I still miss Ellie Saabs Vetiver).
After a long time there was the possibility of a sharing participation (thanks to Bajki).
My first reaction was, "Damn! I only bought 20ml."

It's fantastic.
Where the Vetiver competitors usually bury (earthy-green) Vetiver under citric notes, here it is the other way round.
Lightly earthy vetiver with dry, non-sweet coffee beans, with a grapefruit note in the background, which NEVER covers the vetiver, but at most has a supportive effect.
It's like discovering a new type of coffee (quote: DonJuanDeCat). He's right.
Dior Vetiver is a pleasing, incredibly beautiful fragrance, and by far the most beautiful vetiver fragrance I know of.

I don't think there is one. What you smell in the first 20 seconds stays. Speaking of staying! The performance isn't from bad parents either. 8h durability and a good Sillage is with me in it. Meaning Dior Vetiver plays tango between "A fragrance just for me" and "BAM!!! HAAAALLLOOOOO HERE AM I!!!!11!".

But now there is still a big point of criticism:
How did Dior get the idea to sell this wonderful fragrance only in Paris AND (allegedly) stop it? Which clever marketing foxes are there again at work?
Well, there's nothing I can do about that - just whine.

Dior Vetiver is a hard to find, but fantastic vetiver scent with coffee beans and delicate citrus, with very good performance.
If you like Vetiver and you have the opportunity, please try it. :-)

Fresh and Clean!
This perfume is very unique and masculine.
Suitable for all seasons.
Refreshing and clean because of the combination of the coffee with the vetiver.
The perfume is very interesting and recommended for all lovers of the vetiver.

Projection: Good enough.

For me this perfume is the best in its category right today.

IMO, My score: 10

The "Coffee" Vetiver
I find this one very similar to other "modem" interpretations of vetiver fragrances in that the main note is paired with other complimentary accords. In this case it's dark roasted coffee. I find this one quite similar to vetiver fatal by atelier cologne. It's similar in that the vetiver smells "nutty" and almost has a sweet aspect to it.

I'm not sure if this is a "holy grail" of vetiver fragrances but I certainly like it. I think it's unique enough to own. It's just a shame that it's discontinued.

So many vetivers out there but somehow the great house of Dior manages to set itself apart with a 3 note scent. At the least, buy a sample
