Mon Vetiver Eau de Parfum
Mon Vetiver Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Essential Parfums. The notes of this fragrance are Haitian vetiver, gin accord, Mexican lime, juniper, lavender, gentian, cashmeran, Indonesian patchouli
Mon Vetiver is a surprising and non-traditional vetiver, built on a series of contrasts between bright and dark, natural and synthetic, and modern and traditional, which serve to give this scent a truly distinctive character. Balancing its essentially serious character with the cheerful radiance of woody ambers, wearing Mon Vetiver feels like wearing a Savile Row suit with the lapels turned up.
The structure of Mon Vetiver is very clever. It drapes a sparkling gin and tonic accord over a dark, woody fougère-ish base for a play of light on dark that really grabs the attention. The rugged masculinity of vetiver is not hidden away or softened, but rather emphasized by the bitterness of lime and a fistful of pungent herbs – lavender and gentian. The play between natural and synthetic is perfectly pitched here too, the earthy sweetness of natural Indonesian patchouli illuminated and fluffed out by the sweet, musky glow of cashmeran. Woody, earthy, sweet, and expansive, this is a vetiver scent with both manners and swagger.
