Adam Michael has this to say “My second wild vetiver offering from North India, and my first steam distilled material (27/11/19). This is pure aromatic theater, a real spectacle that sucks you in and demonstrates a beauty, that only naturals can.
The opening notes are muddy, peeled potato skins, old books and potent fresh at the same time. Somehow reminiscent to my nose of a clay scent and creating an image in my mind of walking in an open field, in the midst of a torrential rain storm, my clothing completely soaked and my face almost frozen from the powerful cold blustery wind.
Also somehow reminiscent to the DNA of a good bottle of aged mitti attar (before the days of IPM and DOP being involved) and it’s worth noting that this does pair splendidly with sandalwood oils, especially Indian produced Santalum album.
As the above indicates, this aroma profile is once again big on the petrichor front but throughout the life span, you do get plumes of intense spiced heat, along with mulch, notes resembling Texan cedarwood and vegetative nuances. This material offers very little in the way of grassy facets, yes grassy facets are present, but in my opinion they only really show themselves with any conviction within the dry down and when they do, to my nose, they are entwined with trace dark chocolate qualities.
If you respond well to the scent profile, this is another wild vetiver that can be useful for calming emotions and helping you unwind and relax.
In the world of perfumery, this vetiver pairs splendidly with patchouli, oarweed and sandalwood materials and compliments scents that have musky characteristics such as ambrette, and even angelica root to a lesser extent. Useful within a perfumers pallet whenever perfumes of a ozonic, watery, fresh air, log cabin, woody and even leather orientated theme are being considered.”

This is a very soft and gentle Khus, no scratchy notes or smokiness here. It brings up images of earth and clay. I also get the reference to Mitti Attar and I will combine it with Sandalwood, this will go well together. Lovely quality material.

Wild Royal Super Premium Vetiver lives up to all its epithets from the name. It is a true royal oil, with a luxurious and majestic scent, powerful and overbearing.
Its green notes are reminiscent of the wet foliage of tropical plants – with its sultry, wet, mossy and earthy nuances. The notes of earth, red clay, spices and dry wood, with a hint of musk and leather, restrained and not bulging, sound in the dry down.
There is a lot in common with the traditional Ruh Khus, and yet this is a special oil that will adorn any perfume creation. It blends beautifully with woody oils and lends a bold, grounding hue to floral fragrances.

The first time I heard of vetiver was a few years ago when I tried a men’s fragrance from a famous French company many of us know. I liked it and was intrigued. I later learned that other brands make fragrances based on vetiver. So when I got into making my own fragrances – naturally I bought some vetiver from another company. Now keep in mind I was an armature, but that vetiver I smelt really stank. I was puzzled as to why so many popular companies would would create fragrances around vetiver.
So I recently discovered this site when I was doing some deep searching. I found this super premium vetiver and thought I would give it another shot. And wow, I was simply amazed. It still had this deep grassy, salty, hay-like scent – but it was enjoyable. I could understand from the smelling strip why it had so many uses.
I guess my point here is quality and how much it makes a difference. This is a quality product and it will make all the difference for a serious perfumer. Definitely strong and has presence, but its been done right and has potential to make many beautiful fragrances. I’m curious to see what I can make. Thank you!

Absolutely gorgeous. This EO offers the spectrum of scents one would expect from a high quality KHUS in subtle fashion. It is not in your face. It is soothing and relaxing. A mediation in a warm, wet and lush forest.
