In Les Cayes, Haiti, vetiver roots with their dry, earthy notes are laid out in front of L’Atelier Français des Matières partner Pierre Léger’s factory where the prized ingredient will be distilled. That earthy scent quality is amplified in Vetiver de Pierre in one of its two acts. You see, there are at least two acts in this stunning and unusual fragrance that amplifies vetiver’s natural complexity, which is a perfume in and of itself.
In the first act, vetiver’s dry earthy qualities are intensified by gourmand notes of cacao absolute from the Ivory Coast and Venezuelan tonka. Combined with blond tobacco absolute from Turkey, and you’re practically transported to an expensive cigar store in Santo Domingo.
In the second act ?? or woven throughout the first ?? a citrusy green, rose-like creamy floral quality of vetiver radiates out?? adding a delicate refinement to its earthy qualities.
Smooth, elegant and complex, Vetiver de Pierre will be a treat for vetiver lovers, surprising you at every turn with a complex symphony.
