Vetiver, a grass which is grown in Haiti, India, Brazil and Indonesia is a key basenote scent in many mens frangrances. Vetiver fragrances are perfect for the cooler months as they tend to be warmer, richer and sophisticated. Eau de parfum’s are quite common among the Vetiver fragrances meaning they tend to be more expensive but you use less – being stronger than an eau de toilette.
Tom Ford‘s Grey Vetiver has spice, wood and sun-drenched citrus. It’s masculine, luxurious and confident. This is the velvet tuxedo jacket of frangrance and a favourite. Creed‘s Original Vetiver uses the vetiver leaves rather than the root resulting is a fresher, green, earthy fragrance with ginger and mandarin notes. Refined and sophisticated. Master perfumer, Creed, is new to the Australian market and has its first counter in the southern hemisphere now at David Jones‘s flagship Elizabeth Street store. Armani Prive‘s Vetiver Babylone is comtemporary, clean and subtle.
