Vetiver Heart E.O

Adam Michael has this to say “Vetiver Heart essential oil is produced by fractionation which means in this instance that the essential oil (steam distilled from the roots/rhizomes) is rectified by running it through a fractionating column.

The fractions are collected, and it is largely the grassy and rooty fractions that are blended back together. This results in a material mostly free from the woody aspects. The woody notes that are still present are somewhat reminiscent of smelling pure Cambodian oud. The grassy and rooty aroma generally found more within the heart notes of vetiver materials is the dominant aroma of this material throughout its development.

Vetiver Heart essential oil is so incredible that it is a luxury perfume in its own right. Provides a fantastic fixative effect, provides rich body to Cambodian oud accords, pairs beautifully with both patchouli and sandalwood naturals, a must for heavier Oriental bases and amber notes and overall I highly recommend this material.”
