Vetiver perfumes: the scent of the Earth
Although the best known perfumes are those that have floral notes, the perfumes with notes of cinnamon or the fruity perfumes; There are also other ingredients that are much more exotic and different, such as vetiver. How? You don't know what vetiver perfumes are? Well, don't stop reading and you will find out!
What is vetiver?
Chrysopogon zizanioides, also known as vetiver is a plant from which an essential oil highly appreciated in the world of perfumery is extracted, by distilling its root. Why? Due to its fixing and harmonizing effect on fragrances, which makes them integrate better with each other and their aroma lasts much longer.
Before we mentioned that it is an exotic ingredient, and it is endemic to areas such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Haiti and certain regions of India. Its use was traditionally related to food, religious offerings, medicinal purposes and, of course, the manufacture of perfumes. It is very resistant and does not have very marked climatic requirements, so it can grow in other warm Asian countries and islands in southern Africa.
What does vetiver smell like?
The aroma of vetiver is known as the representative smell of the Earth. And is that the smell of vetiver is green, woody, earthy, oriental, dry, bitter and with a refreshing citrus touch that makes it unique. But above all, intense. Not suitable for sensitive noses!
Its aroma has the ability to intoxicate and relax everyone who wears it. It is widely used in aromatherapy and niche perfumery, and its citrus touch is ideal for the most summery and refreshing fragrances.
Given its characteristics, this ingredient is more used in men's fragrances, although more and more perfumers dare to include it in women's perfumes.
