From the outset, Vetiver essential oil presents itself in all its duality : a green, fresh and herbaceous note facing a woody, dense and unctuous precipice evoking hay and cocoa. The smoky note bursts forth, gushing and proud, harboring subtle facets of cashew. Persistent until the end, the reminder of earthy and country hay turns into a pipe tobacco more and more dry, like a trip to the Caribbean cigar.
With aromatic notes : Eucalyptus / Cypress to maintain a green effect.
Gourmet and/or woody heart and base notes.
