With Vetiver Cœur, the perfumer interprets vetiver in the way that only she can. It took years to find the perfect vetiver, one with an especially soft cœur (heart). We notice this variety lends itself exceptionally well to the accompanying floral mélange of orange flower, iris and rose, drawing out a natural sweetness like no other vetiver fragrance in our memory. The note of vetiver shines clean and bright, as though it is casting a light of celestial purity onto the aura of the wearer. Citrus notes serve to compliment vetiver's bright qualities, and they never become unpalatably tangy in this fragrance.
Vetiver has practical uses in aromatherapy. Its earthiness offers relaxing properties, similar to lavender. While the pyramid contains many notes, the vetiver shines enough for this to be worn as a casual, soothing, and even meditative fragrance.
