Vetiver paired with citrus!
This new vetiver focuses on any amount of citrus fruits like: Lemon, lime, bergamot and orange. The citrus fruits definitely compete with vetiver, but in the end vetiver wins so it turns out to be a great combination. On the way to vetiver, you pass through delicious spices and fine forests.
Not as intense as other manceras, but not softer either.
Pure enjoyment. Successful fragrance

Very fresh, easy-to-wear vetiver
One of Mancer’s recent releases is Vetiver Sensuel, which immediately smells like a mix of light vetiver with citruses and florals. Some notes that seem to stand out are a mix of citruses (lemon, orange, bergamot, lime), pepper, vetiver, mint, patchouli, and a blended base of woods and musk, mainly. So it’s a formula that seems like it’ll produce an agreeable perfume, and that’s largely true in my wearing of it. There’s not much to dislike; it’s very easy to wear.

Vetiver Sensuel is not quite as deep or interesting as other “fresh vetiver” scents, like Roja Vetiver Extrait or Dua Fragrances’ recent original, Pretiosum Vetiverum. It’s a little less sharp that Guerlain Vetiver, however, so it really might work for many a summer vetiver scent that is pretty inoffensive.

Overall, I quite like it—I associate Mancera and Montale with heavier scents, typically, so it’s always nice to a see a freshie release that’s fun like Cedrat Boise or Aoud Lemon Mint. It performs reasonably well and is sold by Krystal Fragrance for the standard pricing of $180 for 120ml.

Classic, but not old-fashioned
Few people would associate vetiver with sensuality, but rather with objectivity. Of course, there are many different varieties of licorice - from grassy-green to earthy-smoky - but in most classic fragrances, the middle ground is sought in between. Similar to Montale with vetiver patchouli, Mancera has created a somewhat orgy-like scent; but I take Louis Vuitton to be more restrained, powdery and gray.

As the sensual side of vetiver sensuel one could interpret the slightly fresh effect at the beginning, which for me is mainly created by bergamot and orchid. Here I don't see the citric, nor the light-floral quality as really dominant, because both are well balanced and a green facet is already noticeable. In my opinion, the mint can only be guessed at in depth, while the pepper adds a little spice. So the first impressions result from a mixture of masculine and feminine notes, of classic and modern elements. But little by little, the boundaries shift, as the subtle dry-woody component and the usual fading of the top notes make Vetiver Sensuel look a bit 'oldschool'. Amber/sweet doesn't play a role here, but rather patchouli and oakmoss in a supporting way. But the fragrance remains relatively bright and fortunately doesn't become powdery, which in combination with vetiver and/or a certain soapiness makes for a very old-fashioned perfume for me.

Conclusion: Mancera has created a pleasant, natural-looking vetiver fragrance which, although it does not offer any real refreshment, seems appropriate in all seasons. As expected, it is more suitable for more mature people, does not quite live up to its name in the end and is personally too classic for me in the end. (I'm also not necessarily the biggest fan of vetiver-dominated fragrances.) But if you like this direction in principle, you should consider a test with the good value for money.

The vetiver-lemon lemonade for the summer! Not really "sensual" but damn good!
Hey, this is the first comment on the fragrance, how nice :)
I was able to test the scent in a sharing, and what can I say? I love vetiver scents anyway, but this one... This is my new go-to summer vetiver!
Whoever reads the pyramid of scents will have guessed that this fragrance begins very citric. And that's exactly how it is. The lemon is the first thing you smell. Very light orange in the background. But fortunately not a "bath cleaner lemon", but a freshly cut lemon that is on its way to the lemonade glass. My better half spoke of a shower gel smell, and I can understand where she got it from. The top note is just very refreshing and somehow clear... I'm sure you understand what I mean ;)

After 20/30 minutes the citrus scent moves further and further into the background. The mint appears and the vetiver announces itself. But the mint doesn't stay for very long... already after 20 minutes only the vetiver remains. But together with a very light orchid note. This lies in the background and provides a certain lightness. The vetiver is not earthy or dirty, like you know it from Encre Noire or similar. It is a little bit like in Grey Vetiver or from Guerlain's Vetiver, but there it is a little bit lighter.

As soon as the base notes are reached, not much happens in the field of fragrance development. But that is a good thing! The drydown is heavenly! As I said, perfect for the (high) summer, but also well wearable on warm spring or autumn days.
The shelf life is a good 7 to 8 hours.

I haven't seen the bottle live, but it looks great on the pictures. And the Mancera bottles are all great I also like the price! The scent is great and smells very high quality. I think my bottling will be gone quickly and then a whole bottle will have to go!
