Floris, How Can You Discontinue *This* One?...
Vetiver opens with hints of bergamot and lavender, with some of the cinnamon, clove and rooty vetiver peeping through. It is just a tad on the sweet side, maybe a hair less sweet than Coeur de Vetiver Sacre from L'Artisan. In the heart, the relatively clean and semi-refined vetiver takes the fore, joined by the cinnamon and clove combo that is much more pronounced, slightly dirtied up with a smidgen of cardamom and coriander spice. The scent's base is comprised of the remnants of the spiced vetiver, sweetened up a bit more by sandalwood, tonka bean and patchouli. The vetiver, while always co-staring with other notes is never obscured from start to finish. Projection and longevity are both average.

I am so disappointed in Floris for discontinuing this gem. Floris Vetiver is one of the best vetiver scents I have smelled to date, and after No. 89 and Santal, it was the best the house had to offer, IMO. Vetiver by Floris may be a bit too polished and refined for some Vetiver purists, but folks that enjoy semi-sweet vetiver scents that feature other supporting notes prominently like Coeur de Vetiver Sacre should consider this one a mandatory sample if you can find it. As for myself, Vetiver is a definite buy and gets a rating of 4 to 4.5 stars out of 5. Shame on you Floris!
