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.

Not a fan

This scent was not what I expected and my testers didn't like it either.

So Amazing!

I got this during the sample sale days, and I am not disappointed. Vetiver is fantastic and blends well with Black Violet and Saffron.

Vetiver-y Ah-mazing Scent!

I've been looking for a different source, for Vetiver, other than the current company I use. Their fragrances are magnificent, but cannot continue justify the cost. A really good Vetiver is very difficult to find. I took advantage of the 50% off deal on the 2oz bottle and YAHTZEEEEE!! You guys nailed it! It's much more common in Europe than it is here in the US, so I understand why it wouldn't be everyone's favorite. Give it a chance, make sure you blend it with other fragrances, i.e. grapefruit, lemon or even lemongrass. It's complex and so refreshing. Stay lit!

obsessed with this

this FO is seriously beautiful. its complex and could be added to so many candles to provide some depth. its earthy, bright, and fresh. I'm not sure what true vetiver is truly like but this is beautiful either way. great ct and ht.

Perfect for Blending

I personally do not love this scent on its own, but I bought it with the intention of mixing to create my own concoction. I find this works so well with oceanic scents to bring an earthy balance to it (I will use maybe 25% vetiver and 75% something else). This is my second year selling a candle with this FO and everyone loves. Vetiver is something you 'can't quite put your finger on' which helps make your candle collection unique. Will continue to purchase because I enjoy being creative and mixing things together like the little chemist I am.

I love Vetiver. But, this not so much.

I was honestly shocked at how complex this was

I don't know what I was expecting but this has such a complex fragrance profile that I could sit and smell it over and over and find new aspects to it. I expected an earthy, flat fragrance that was sort of ruined by a heavy smokey musk but wow, this is beautiful. It's earthy, but it's multidimensional. It's my #1 favorite among the 14 I sampled.

Complex, Intriquing Scent

I use this in Candles. I can definitely see why this one gets low ratings though not necessarily deserved. This is not for everyone. It is a love or hate fragrance. If you lean towards sweet and floral it's probably not going to work for you. If you like orientals and woods then probably yes.

It does have a touch of that cannabis funk vibe, but it is offset by a woodsy earthiness with a touch of citrus. Think patchouli, evergreens, and lemongrass or lime. It is a bit of a wrecking ball (not subtle) but if you let yourself get into those middle and base notes it is a winner. It is definitely complex. I tell my customers straight up they are either going to love it or hate it. The ones that love usually buy. It has been selling well since I introduced it, and I keep it in my lineup for its uniqueness.

I would definitely recommend trying the sample size first to see if it works with your taste or brand.

Just a thought, I would like to widen its appeal in my next batch and am thinking of mixing it with Cedar and Orange EO/FO to see if I can tame it a bit. Or may try some of the CS mixing suggestions.

Not even close, at all.

This is a very aftershave smell, not vetiver the grass root. Not even close.
