Frater Perfumes Vetiver 100ml Parfum
Vetiver is a fresh citrus fragrance bursting with grapefruit, bergamot and wild orange. Pink pepper melds with the fresh scent of earthy clamped vetiver supporting a heart of Bourbon geranium, crisp rhubarb and creamy magnolia blossoms.
The base of rich mahogany joins oakmoss and aged patchouli for a unique and decidedly masculine dry down.
Vetiver fragrances are some of the finest representatives of green perfumes. I wanted to create a vetiver that was different, a vetiver that was earthy and green but also a nod to the luxurious colognes of the 18th century when the art of perfume truly got underway.
Vetiver is a fragrance that melds my favourite fresh top notes with the wonderful radiant woods and a very special quality of vetiver, created using the ancient clamping method most typically found in fine dining in which roots are preserved in dry earth for many months to intensify their flavour and scent.
Keeping with the spirit of cuisine, I added rhubarb — a surprising but synergistic accompaniment to vetiver, sharing many olfactory connections, and grapefruit modified with intense wild orange. Bourbon geranium and creamy (but light) magnolia perfectly complete the masculine heart while spicy pepper adds interest which is carried into the dry down through a bright incense note.
