Floris Vetiver

Item Description

This is the only Floris fragrance I've bought in a full sized bottle if I can't find the Sandalwood, it's that good. This scent is for vetiver lovers ONLY! I'd imagine it's truly a love it or hate it. For those who love it as I do, we adore it. Extremely rich, earthy and dry. Vetiver. Nothing more, nothing less. Magnificently done.

I gave a ten for price. 3.4oz for $70. Quite frankly, worth every penny. It's a true pleasure to own, enjoy and experience.

Packaging is simple and elegant, as always from Floris.

Staying power is pretty impressive, and is one of the deciding factors for me in buying a cologne. Colognes typically don't las very long on me, but this one stays with me all day, a dry-down as glorious as the first spritz. Let me add that one spritz is also enough.

A work of art from Floris, and a must for any vetiver lover. Atleast sample it.

Top notes of bergamot, lemon and lavender.
Heart notes of geranium, cinnamon, clove, vetiver and coriander.
Base notes of patchouli, sandalwood, amber, frankincense and tonka bean.

Not a bad scent and those who like incense (especially since it's similar to L'Occitane Eau des baux) they will take to this right away. To me the incense is very powerful. It is freshened by the vetiver and patchouli and maintains this earthy vibe also similar to Burberry London without the tobacco. The tonka sweetens it a little to keep it from being harsh This will be fine all year round and especially in fall/winter. To me it's nowhere near as good as Guerlain Vetiver/Vetiver Extraordinaire/Encre Noire but for those who don't like those scents they may take to this one. The longevity is fantastic. It's decent and inoffensive but too boring for me.

A fine quality, floral, vetiver cologne, that has now been discontinued (although why I don't know). Gentle, sophisticated, and well balanced. I myself prefer stronger vetivers like Puig (also discontinued), and Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver (pure vetiver heaven!) Most would probably prefer L'Occitane or Guerlain vetiver as a substitute for this one.

What a tremendous vetiver! It's romantic, earthy, and distinctive. If you can find it, try it. It's worth the price.

I have a sample vial, so I can't comment on the packaging or atomizer.
