Vetiver Bourbon E.O (REUNION)

10/10/20: Adam Michael here. I need to state that the plant material of both Geranium Bourbon and Vetiver Bourbon that we buy is no longer grown in Reunion. Instead, the plant material in both cases is grown in Madagascar, sent across to Reunion and distilled there.

Adam Michael has this to say “This vetiver bourbon essential oil is utter perfection and a must try for the vetiver connoisseur. The aroma is full of warmth, baked clay and reminds me of an open fire aroma in some far flung country on a warm late afternoon as the sun is starting to set. This aroma is also full of dark masculine oriental sweetness, mature woods full of zappy character, earth, bricks, saturated wet soil after a heavy tropical rain storm and finished with a warm nutty nuance.

The colour of vetiver bourbon essential oil is amber to golden brown, produced from the dried treated roots by steam distillation and of a slightly thicker viscosity than regular vetiver oils. A great material for chypres, oriental accords, high end vetiver themed creations and pairs very well with Cambodian ouds.”

We have now created our own vetiver collection page.
