Native to India but grown throughout the tropics, Vetiver has been been used for centuries to naturally enhance perfumes, foods, and medicines. Our Vetiver fragrance oil is a sophisticated mix of citrus, floral notes, and cedarwood that creates an uplifting, soothing, and calming aroma. A year-round classic, this traditionally masculine scent has broad appeal.

This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including elemi oil, fir balsam oil, geranium oil, orange oil, patchouli oil, and vetiver oil.

We did not experience acceleration or separation. Once the batter came to trace it turned very goopy but still easy to work with. After 24 hours there was no discoloration, and the scent was strong. After curing the soap was a light tan shade and the scent was strong. Due to the texture of the batter, a layered soap pattern would be ideal.

Strong

I really wanted to like this one as I am a big fan of patchouli, nag champa, and sandalwood type scents. But it is extremely strong! Maybe I just don't know what to pair it with. Smells old-lady-perfumish and is headache-inducingly strong.

Love

Always loved this earthy woodsy scent. Mixes well with other scents.

This made me gag

I was looking for a nice woodsy, masculine scent, instead it smells like old pot. I don't like it and it made me gag.

Very nice

This is a very calming and fresh scent. I use it to blend into many other scents.

Hello Handsome!

Wow such mixed reviews! I am SO in love with this FO! One of the reviewers below likened it to a sophisticated, older gentleman and I absolutely have to agree. It is so beautiful and masculine and I am SHOCKED at the hot throw of this one in soy (464). Really good. I typically blend my FO's. This one I use 5% to a blend of 5% Teakwood, Leather, and Egyptian Amber. It reminds me of one of my husband's go-to fragrances, so I appropriately named it "Sleeping in Ian's Shirt". Our friends get a big kick out of it.

sky works art

first i loved the man who said wright out that it smelled like weed. 16oz bottle bought loved it . 3 months later 8oz it dose not come close to.....more like 3 ladies standing around vat 2x2 boil and trouble . too much of some thing too little of another.

Great scent, lasting throw.

Beautiful, earthy fragrance that blended well in both paraffin and soy waxes. Hot throw in wax melts was a definite 10 out of 10 and performed for up to two days in basic wax warmers.

Can't get enough

I've always been one for woodsy scents, and this does not disappoint. The excellent reviewers below really nailed the description better than I ever could. (And hey, what's wrong with an old Jewish guy walking down the street smoking a J?) I'm going to try the suggestion of blending with blood orange, and I'm also stealing Grizzly's description.
Please know what to expect, (a woodsy, rough, cannabis-Esque scent) before ordering, being disappointed, and writing a negative review on an amazing product.
Thanks CS!

Amazing fragrance

I had mixed feelings while picking this fragrance because the reviews were not the most encouraging, got a sample size.
I must say that this is one of my favorite fragrances. It is so rich and intense and just sophisticated. I believe it's unisex. Im purchasing a bigger bottle!
Try mixing it with a bit of Blood Orange. Amazing.

Smells like Nair

Bought this fragrance hoping to introduce a masculine scent to my candle collection and the smell of the is was just awful. I thought that maybe I just didn't like it, but when asking another employee, he said that it reminded him of the scent of Nair Hair removal. Will not be purchasing again.

Read Sarah's review, she nailed it!

You are sophisticated, and captured the man wearing Vetiver!

Loving this manly, rich fragrance

I reorder larger bottle after I received my sample. Very masculine and everyone in my house loves it. Rich, warm. One of my favorites. I think men will really appreciate this, as well as women for an acquired taste.

Creator of perfumes, candles, etc

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.

Research Vetiver before buying

Not sure what all the other reviewers are crying about below. It's Vetiver and it smells just like vetiver, which has a cannabis musk aroma to it naturally. Think smoked patchouli mixed with a woodsy marijuana. But that's the natural state of the aroma. Personally, I think it's great. It has a deep masculinity about it all its own and works wonderfully as a mixer with another masculine oil. Is it perfect? No, of course not. It's very sharp OOTB but mellows down after it's mixed with wax. If you enjoy natural and woodsy scents then try this on, however I implore you to do a little research on the scent you're buying before taking a whiff and writing a negative review.

Old man & Weed

Oh, my. This was a nightmare. I cannot get past the sharpness.

It reminds me of an old Jewish man doused in far too much cologne smoking a joint.

No. no. No. 😭😭😭

Think Twice Before Buying

I was excited to try some new scents that this supplier had, and I wish I would have skipped this one. I bought a 4 ounce bottle to try and I have sold ZERO candles with this scent. I thought this would be one of my masculine, woodsy scents that would attract some of my male customers... It did not. If you are looking for something that would fit that description try out Sandalwood on this website.
Think twice before trying this scent out. I didn't and wish I would have saved some money. (The only reason why I am giving this scent two stars is because I think this scent reminds me of my grandpa and I would hate to give him one star lmao)

This reads great in the description. It was bad smelling out of the bottle but I made a candle up to give it a fair test. It was better made up but I don't see myself even selling one of these. It is a very unique scent and maybe it will grow on me but we don't plan to use this one.

Even Better Than Expected - LOVE!!!

I've been seeing this fragrance note in high-end candles for awhile and was thrilled to see CS finally carry it. Our sample came in and my husband and I both fell absolutely in love with it. Hard to describe, but sophisticated and very addicting. It will work amazing as a mixer in our candle line - can't wait to get the large bottle I ordered!!!

Vetiver f/o

Interesting scent, for sure. I own vetiver essential oil, so that is what I was hoping for. Something a bit less smokey and heavy than the real stuff. This fragrance hits me immediately as musky cannabis. It has a clean, cologne aspect about it. I have only sniffed out of the bottle, but the more I sniff, the more I like. Will be testing in soy.
