Not like Hermes' orange-mineral release.
This, this right here, is its own scent.......not like, a clone or sorta-like, Terre by Hermes. This is a masculine aroma that is a great companion during all seasons but mostly in the warmer time of year.

This DOES NOT have the flint-like note that Hermes' Terre contains, making it much more of a friendly scent.

Vetiver and beautiful citrus, it's what you wear , along with that nice linen or seersucker suit in the high heat or casual evenings.

Rock this and wear it with confidence gentlemen!

Love for the flatterer at the 2nd glance
Around the middle of this year I had my dear Parfumo 168io send me a bottle of Cuir Vetiber (thanks again!).
At first I was disappointed in expectation of vetiver and woody underlined leather notes.
What I smelled was a vetiver opening that was immediately surrounded by sweet-creamy Tonka wood notes. There I had imagined something different but fortunately I had only one filling... I thought.
I first left this bottling and ticked off the scent for myself... but then I caught myself again and again grabbing the atomizer occasionally and still putting on a few sprayers of Cuir Vetiver...
Somehow I liked the vetiver-herbaceous, creamy wood note after all.
As Camey5000 already writes, I felt flattered, relaxed and cozy with this fragrance.

So Cuir Vetiver wandered then nevertheless into my collection and is now mostly for me a leisure scent on cooler days.

The bottle is simple but beautiful with the wooden lid. The spray head is pretty good. The Sillage is not very strong but perceptible at an arm's length.
The shelf life on my skin is about 5-6 hours, on my clothes the scent is still perceptible after one day
My conclusion: A feel-good bargain from Yves Rocher that you can treat yourself to without hesitation. ;-)

Permanently soft
Soft, flattering wood note with a tendency to be sniffed all the time. Unfortunately only lasts two to three hours. Vetiver is totally lost in the woody notes, maybe Haiti forgot to take everything with them. And I can't find leather in any way. So Tonka stays

Cuir - No, Vetiver Definitely
Scentrack
Morrissey - Everyday is like Sunday

Cuir Vetiver is composed with utter imagination, very modern and substantial fragrance. It’s inoffensive, easy to wear, clean, sweet but very cleverly avoids the banality of today’s mass products. Imagine the ISO E Super cedar skeleton of Terre d’Hermes, broadened by the natural nutty aspect of Tonka bean and clean green vetiver. Like Ellena decided to make a more natural version of Terre d’Hermes by a nutty element of Vetiver Tonka. The vetiver is clearly present, but unfortunately I expected more leather (cuir). I can only imagine a soft suede accord, made mostly of Tonka bean. Tonka is really pronounced in Cuir Vetiver, thus lovers of Mugler’s Pure Tonka could take this fragrance in consideration for Mugler’s summer version.

Rating: 8/10

Worth every penny!
One of the most honest, worthwhile and affordably good releases in a long while. I am not a fan of Yves Rocher usually, as despite I respect the brand, none of their releases seemed that interesting to me so far (not even for the price); but Cuir Vetiver quite got me. It is by no means inferior to many decent designers easily showing double the price tag – Hermès, for instance: for the similarity of the notes, the composition and the quality, this could have easily been a budget-mainstream release by them. In fact Cuir Vetiver is basically a cheaper, yet absolutely solid sort of fresher Vetiver Tonka meeting Terre d’Hermès with a thin shade of some smoky tonka-infused suede (and that’s the only “cuir” you’ll get), and also some tangy cardamom nuance which reminds me of another Hermès scent for men – Voyage.

A poor man’s Hermès digest, shortly, with a surprising good quality and a not-so-ordinary texture. Specifically I detect here a more than compelling sort of fresh-woody-powdery transparent clarity dangerously close to Ellena’s style, and despite Cuir Vetiver smells quite close to the stuff I mentioned above, for some reasons it doesn’t feel just like a blatant ripoff of it. I don’t get what precisely, but there’s more than that. It’s like if more than a simple passive carbon-copying activity to monetize on other brands’ ideas, this was just more a genuine “tribute” simply taking inspiration from them with enough skills and budget to elaborate the brief a bit. It’s still 90% close to Vetiver Tonka and the other couple of Hermès I mentioned, but the remaining 10% is, well, a little sparkle of uniqueness (after all, it’s fresher than Vetiver Tonka, and smokier than both Terre and Voyage – unique, in its own and a bit derivative way).

So, all in all, totally recommended. It smells good, classy, versatile, smoky yet fresh and breezy enough to be perfect for any climate and circumstance. And surprisingly natural, too, considering the level of flat syntheticness you usually get at this price range. Sadly the persistence is a bit weak, but it’s so inexpensive that you can simply reapply it on and on. For 29 eur/100 ml or so, a total winner in my “everyday-replacement-for-more-expensive-stuff” book.

LA SENSUALITÉ UNIQUE D’UN VETIVER AUX ACCENTS CUIRÉS
« J’ai imaginé un parfum cuiré aux facettes lumineuses pour une sensualité inédite.
La fraicheur élégante du Vétiver se mêle aux notes cuirées claires du Santal des Caraïbes et de l’essence de Cèdre.
Son cœur réchauffé de fève Tonka pousse encore plus loin la sensualité.
Cet accord unique se développe à même la peau pour laisser un sillage raffiné. »
Sonia Constant, parfumeur

She envisioned a light leather perfume for a whole new sensation of sensuality. Here for her, vetiver expresses an elegant freshness which harmonizes with the bright leathery tones of Caribbean sandalwood and cedarwood. The tonka bean creates deeper sensuality enabling the "unique" accord to develop directly on skin while leaving a sophisticated sillage.

Cuir Vetiver vs Terre d'Hermès, so close in the smell, yet so different in notes. A mild leather against a mineral earth, though so lovely!+2
