Velvet Vetiver: a Mediterranean summer’s day
Velvet Vetiver is a Mediterranean summer’s day sheltered in a sumptuous bottle with a emerald green cap that recalls the principal of this fragrance: the fig. While most Vetiver fragrances hint to this amazing wood and its bitter citrus notes in the top, dark spices in the heart and a dusty facet of the vetiver, Velvet Vetiver has instead an almost blinding solar brightness. To achieve this, the Vetiver from Haiti is redistilled to eliminate asparagus-like notes and dusty wood-shave notes. The Vetiver signature, the vetyverol, has high affinity to the proteins in the skin, hence making the Vetiver signature lasts for a long time. The core of this Mediterranean Vetiver is brought by the fig notes, the fig being one of the most iconic Mediterranean trees. The olfactory characteristics of this fruit – so typical of the Mediterranean area – are explored in all their facets, from the crispness of fig leaves and the smooth plumpness of the fruit’s peel, to the sweetness of the pulp and its lactonic heart that results in a solar smoothness.
