Vetiver Essential Oil (CHINA)

Adam Michael has this to say “Vetiver is without doubt one of my personal favourite naturals and of which is a staple component for the few perfumes I make for my own personal use. This Chinese vetiver essential oil has sincerely surprised me, it gives so much and it does it for so long and so very well. The aroma is wet earthy, baked roots, with a deep rich woody soul and a slight grassy tang. The complexities of this aroma also reveal distinctive spicy elements of both chilli seeds and cumin with fleeting nutty and vegetative qualities throughout. I can’t help wonder if the well-loved Haiti and Java offerings are now a little over rated.

As for uses, Chinese vetiver essential oil is a must have material for building and improving vetiver accords, developing wood, leather, tobacco and spice notes and is especially good at taking the composition in a far flung oriental direction.”
