Joni Mitchell in the log cabin
It slowly turns out that I obviously have a weakness for Heeley fragrances: I like the clear announcement, the variations on the main theme, where there is always something unexpected playing along... there is simply no fuss about it. And the rest is skillful.
Vetiver Veritas enters the arena like a lumberjack: he is clearly standing in the log cabin door, shining all over his face, bringing half a forest with him and rumbling a loud "MOIN! And then he sits down at your table and begins to tell you quiet stories, you talk about delicious recipes, listen to Joni Mitchell's "Mingus" together...

I like that clear vetiver scent. I searched for a long time for a for me portable variant of the topic and found it here. For me not as old-fashioned as Guerlain's classics, but rounder, clearer, more communicative. Vetiver is very prominent here, but gets a polish by a colouring that is quite surprising for me: lavender leaves. Not the usual fragrance square from the sleeping aids, but the fine, balsamic sweetness of grated lavender leaves - that's great! I hardly notice the mint, nor the grapefruit of the base, but the scent sounds like warm, charred wood to me - not smoky, but deep and dark. And this even after a long working day after 9 hours.

I found my second direct hit here, the bottle comes right next to the "Cardinal" on the shelf
