Posh cars in the vetiver fog
For the 100th anniversary of Bentley Motors on June 07, 2019, Eight & Bob launched a perfume limited to 500 bottles. Created according to the company's own commitment for owners or lovers of vehicles of this brand, which is probably the most exclusive in the VW Group today. After all Bentley supplies state cars and is supplier to the court of the British royal family, among others I don't think anyone can deny the style and elegance of luxury vehicles. Since 1919 and also or even more so after the merger of Bentley and Rolls Royce they stand for noblesse and exclusivity like no other brand.
So I was all the more pleased to be able to purchase one of the 500 flacons, exactly the number 012, as can be read on the genuine silver label engraved by hand. And no, I'm not a Bentley or Rolls-Royce driver. At least not yet, because you can still dream. The fact that I like elegance in cars has "only" been enough for Jaguar so far, but that's another story and the elegant cat of prey has its own scent homage.
The black heavy bottle with heavy silver cap is noble and valuable, not least because of the silver label, on which the typical radiator grille of the brand is shown.
The flacon is delivered in an elegant, oversized packaging, understatement is different Now let's talk about the scent. An elegant vetiver representative. It does not develop, it is immediately present with one of the softer vetiver notes and the tonka bean adds a certain aromatic sweetness to the fragrance, which would otherwise seem too masculine for a unisex scent.
If you like vetiver, you should try it. It doesn't come close to Roja's vetiver, which I like a lot, and reminds me rather distantly of Encre Noir Sports, but it has something special about it. Maybe it is really the fine tuning of both notes. I would have expected more pomp and circumstance, more pomp and fireworks. But it remains elegant and yet linear. Perhaps the creation stands for exactly the connection between high engineering skill in the drive, the solidity of the chassis and the elegance of the bodywork, which is so characteristic of the noble cars.
I see, or rather smell, the fragrance more on the elegant gentleman over 40, but ladies who like vetiver could also take it to their hearts.
