Whenever anyone asks what's vetiver, I have this burning need to say, oh it smells like velvet. I know, I'm a dork! I just want to see if anyone's gullible enough to believe me :lol:

Vetiver is a grass but has a gorgeous woody scent.

To me vetiver is really earthy and deep, usually moreso than patchouli to my nose.

This is soooo what I have always looked for in a patchouli. Maybe it's the blend between the vitiver and the patchouli? I don't detect much dirty earth, only clean earth (LOL) if that makes sense. The earthiness in this is def. in the background though and a necessary dimension IMO. It's a more refined patchouli smell than the plain old essential oil at Whole Foods. On dry down I pick up a lot more of the vanilla mixed w/ sandalwood. Not sure if I like it on my skin yet. after a few hours it smells more like a sweet men's cologne on me. I did spray some on my pillow and bedding and the initial wonderful smell remained. LOVE that. I want to go in my closet and spray all my bellydance costuming with this.

 

I remember reading somewhere that it doesn't damage fabric. Is that right?

I would definitely do a patch test with any of the darker colored ones before you go nutty with them.

 

I didn't have a problem with E.Mystique, but I DID have a problem with the Coffee blend, which ended up a lot darker in it's finished form than I anticipated and absolutely darkened fabric.

You know me well. Moderation is a dirty word to me sometimes LOL. Thanks for the tip. I did test the orange ad the Patchouli sprays on white cotton pillow cases with no ill effects. Like these.

That's from one of Halo's posts. But I'm changing it to DOM queen in a few minutes. Glad you liked it.

This is more dark and heavy, like incense. I use it sparingly, just on my skin. Haven't tried it on my hair yet.

This is utterly delicious. I am also another resin ho (spice ho too), and adore this - probably most out of all the sprays I got.

Love this one, the patchouli is gorgeous! This one clings a bit too, but very gently.

I'm wearing this tonight paired with teddy man 2. Strongly recommend it. I get no vetiver thankfully, just strong patchouli with an undertone of sweet vanilla.

Ditto. I accidentally sprayed it on my reading chair and immediately thought, "Mildew?!" It's just not my kind of scent. But I can imagine everyone who likes patch and resins will love this one.

 

Back to my beloved buttercream roses and essential bliss!

This is quite pretty and sweet as far as resinous scents go - probably good for a "beginner resin ho" :lol: However after some time on my skin the patchouli amps out something fierce and it is all that is coming through now. This might be nicer sprayed in the air or on sheets and kept away from my temperamental skin chemistry...
