Vetiver


The vintage version of Vetiver (Guerlain 1959) is my favorite. With its genuinely fruity lemon and spicy vetiver aromatically swirling around the wearer at the start before calming to a gentle, heavenly and crisp citrusy vetiver scent laced with what smells like the remains of pipe tobacco from decades long past. And of course, it’s clearly a Guerlain, which is always a great thing.  

Top note: lemon.  Middle notes: tobacco and  vetiver.  Base notes: nutmeg, tobacco and pepper. 



Nose: Jean-Paul Guerlain
