Cologne à l'indonésienne
"Usar" is the name given to the vetiver on various Indonesian islands. So that we are all in the picture what this is all about: Vetiver!

Perfumer Stephen Dirkes has lived in Indonesia for many years and was very passionate about creating an authentic Indonesian fragrance. The ingredients read like a "who is who" of endemic products, plants and spices.

The lime (Jeruk Nipis) starts very fresh in combination with earthy ginger and glowing cloves. The whole thing comes across sharp, strong and intense. Special, refreshing and really interesting.

Benzoin (Hajimon) is creamy, with dark nuances, very resinous and never too sweet. The interaction with vetiver is great cinema. The vetiver starts out familiarly herbaceous and smoky, but then goes in an ethereal and grassy direction. I get cut grass, lemon grass, aniseed.

Lime ginger continues to accompany this green-creamy earthy wave of spices. The oud (gaharu) used is bright and rather light, framing the fragrance with a slight woody smokiness.

Stephen used a mixture of three different Indonesian vetiver oils. This really makes the scent very different from what we've smelled before. Usar has been woven very finely and with a lot of craftsmanship and heart and soul - at no time a powerhouse. I see the fragrance more for spring and summer, this top note will be an absolute delight when it's hot. Durability between 5-6 hours.

All in all a great exotic take on vetiver, brewed with beautiful raw materials from far away islands. For me so far one of the best tested vetiver scents.
