Guerlain – Vetiver

Perfume: Vetiver
House: Guerlain
Source: Swap – BlackCat
Size: 2mL bottle

Basenotes Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Neroli, Coriander, Vetiver, Cedar, Tonka, Tobacco, Nutmeg, Pepper, Capsicum

Comments: I think this bottle has some heat damage. The top notes were chemical and alcoholic. It then went through a weird plastic phase before finally settling into a dusty vetiver after 10 minutes. The scent of Virginia red clay. At 60 minutes – get occasional whiffs of dust and spices on the sillage. Quite nice. At the 90 minute mark, begin picking up an anise-laced tobacco note on the skin. Little sillage to speak of- becomes very close-wearing. Gone in less than 6 hours.
