Vetiver is a tropical plant with rhizome that has become the emblem of woody fragrances. In perfumery we distil the dried roots of vetiver to deliver its essence. Its smell is very identifiable: woody, green, smoky and earthy. It reminds us of undergrowth, incense or sometimes even peanut. Used in the base note of our perfume alõ, vetiver gives it a soothing, warm and woody facet.
