5th June: Lots to discuss today. First by Friday of this week I am releasing – with introductory pricing - Costus Root E.O Signature Gold, Persian Royal Rose Otto, Wild Borneo Oud Kinabalu E.O and 4 year aged Buddha Wood E.O. If I get time I will also get the Tea-plantation Kenyan Rose scented Geranium E.O released as well. Also, I am waiting on delivery now of Cis 3 Hexanol N.I and as soon as it arrives it will be put back into stock.
Another priority job now is addressing the new SDS process and from Wednesday, I am going to spend an hour every evening on this task. Thanks btw to those who have volunteered to help with the testing phase. I will be in touch with you all nearer the time. Again, once set up properly, SDS will only be available to those who have purchased the product. Exceptions again will be wild oud, extraits, tinctures and resins. America is now switched on until 14th June at 3pm Italy time for this month. If the workload situation gets out of hand, all other countries will be put on pause. Written as the USA is a unique client – accounting for nearly half of our workload. Normally not an issue but due to circumstances I am without Eleonora and admit that I struggle running Hermitage alone. Lead-time currently stands at 8-10 working days. Thank you, Adam : )
Mark Evans has this to say “Vetiver Haiti essential oil and Reunion material (Bourbon) are renowned as the finest quality vetivers available. Haitian vetiver particularly has a cleaner, greener olfactory profile and could even be considered as having some citrus and floral touches.
The quality of this Haitian vetiver becomes more apparent on the blotter when smelling it diluted and after the top notes have dissipated somewhat. Smelling at full strength, though, there is an obvious difference to, say, Indonesian or Indian vetivers. Rather than the dry earth, clay, mushroomy notes of the former, the Haitian oil is brighter, fresher, smoother and smells initially of burnt wood with sweet earthiness. The delightfully swampy, green and grassy aromatic stage comes apparent sooner and the whole experience is more pleasant.
In perfumery, the Haitian vetiver is more sought after due to the all-around more pleasing aroma profile and also because the sought after green vetiver character becomes apparent more toward the perfume’s top notes. You also don’t have to worry so much about compensating for or covering up the pungent mushroomy top notes present in other vetivers.”

This is a beautiful example of vetiver, it has those bitter, galbanum-like woody nuances made famous in perfumes like Encre Noire and Sycomore, pairs well with patchouli but also fruits like peach and apricots.

My favourite vetiver essential oil.
Robert (verified owner) –
This is an excellent vetiver, not too smokey or harsh and for the price, this is the best staple vetiver to have on one’s organ in my opinion!
Jeroen (verified owner) –
the most versatile and best Haitian Vetiver i’ve come across. Though the batch VBha06 is quite different from the previous batch i bought (VBa04). Less transparent warm-bitter and more earthy and smokey. It will be different in my recepies.
Still a beautiful Vetiver though.
