Spray Fat Electrician on and Vetiver full. Hhmmm, this green, somewhat austere freshness, the wood, this peculiar smell that cannot be compared to any other. And an unusually bright, almost cheerful tone that makes AugustA sit up and take notice, perhaps it's the myrrh.
But this vetiver also begins with a peculiar sweetness. Sweetie, reminiscent of chocolate, of nougat maybe. Well, all right, chestnut cream, olive leaf, opoponx, vanilla, if it's already there. I'm not really a Gormand lover at all, but this top note has a grandiose melodiousness and makes the eyelids flutter a little. Beautifully done, very beautifully, if a Vetiver arrives times over this sweet side. It's clearly a vetiver to spray on, but unlike the classic and the new vetivers, it doesn't come into the nose from the very green or from the grapefruit. Which is beautiful, admittedly, but has a very different character. This one here begins very flattering by the sweetness, is tasty, pleasant and elicits at the same time this liberated breathing, as it is strange for the vetiver, I think, as an effect.
The scent is also somehow not so superficial, on the contrary. But, hello: After five to fifteen minutes the fragrance then suddenly fluctuates quite violently in the classic masculine vetiver compartment that you know where the vetiver hammer hangs, namely: here comes no sweet treat, and I think: a pity! Because that opening chord was so tempting. But now he digs the water from the Encre Noir from my nose-view very sensationally for a short time, then in the intensity also from the Malle Vetiver. In short, without reaching this massiveness.
And then he lies down on my skin. And stays there for a long time, which I very much welcome.
And softening. Still a hint of sweet and nutty. The fragrance oscillates between a vetiver-flavored spread (igitt, bizarre - how delicious...) and the green green sweet grass with its cooling and for me always simply root-himmlischen qualities. The sweet impression disappears, flies by, soon it is forgotten. The woody lush grass comes, rises fragrantly from the ground to the sky and disappears to give room to the nutty nuance again.
For me, that's the ingenious thing about this fragrance - it does it very playfully and yet still smells seriously good. Cloud by cloud, change by change.
He plays around with some unfamiliar nuances, even a little coquettish and tickle creeps in every now and then, but above all and exclusively remains a vetiver scent. No citrus, no flowers. In one moment it's almost a little too dark for me, maybe something for autumn. Then again the austere freshness, the woodiness, which brings a certain moisture and lightness, so that the fragrance appears completely transparent.
Beautiful, no question, and also somehow cheeky for an established and actually very serious (men's) fragrance classic. At the first test strangely not too exciting after the first hours - and the next - and then after 8 hours...and then I went to bed sometime. In the second test, I followed the games more willingly with my nose and now find it very exciting. And, as I said, it smells really long and very good all the time. It's always swaying back and forth between standard vetiver, even if it's modern, and the just so decisive little bit different. Nothing you just put away after trying the first one. I think that's a clear recommendation. For Vetiver fans always.
P.S.: And the name is great anyway. But nobody cares, it's the scent that counts, right? If you do, just have a look at the clip.
P.P.S.: Who of the ladies loves Vetiver - he makes himself very well on woman skin - this electrician please absolutely open the door when he rings...!
