This smells great. Not sure the problems with the other reviews. So, first things first, this really smells nothing like vetiver essential oil. Vetiver essential oil is pungent and has an almost chocolate, wood earthen grass,musk characteristic. Most people are very turned off by it, even more so than patchouli. However, I LOVE vetiver. This fragrance, is Vetiver tamed and smoothed out. They've taken the rough edges out, and added an old fashioned feel to it. This is probably the most comforting masculine scent I have smelled. Not necessarily sexy, but, refined, grounded, a sophisticated man walking down the street, in suspenders, and slacks, wearing a white long sleeved shirt, in a top hat, well groomed, smoking a cigar. That's the vibe I personally get from it.
