Best and Unique Vetiver
Vetiver is one of my top 5 favorite oils, so I'm prejudiced, and maybe a connoisseur since I've tried many Vetivers in 21 years. This LIGHT VETIVER is the most unique and addictive Vetiver I've found! It's different because it's softer, subtler and less masculine. It doesn't even overpower florals in a blend, and is the perfect base note in any blend. This is soothing, calming, sexy, everything Vetiver is supposed to be emotionally. A beautiful drug, I never run out of this heady balm!
I use this in a blend for CP soap. It's a wonderful quality and adds a nice smokiness to a blend.
Incredible quality--simply the best!
I've never been a girly-girl--I've always liked musky scents and even men's cologne on occasion. As a mediterranean climate plant lover, for many years I tried sampling cheap versions of natural store vetiver and was always surprised at how strange and simply unpleasant it smelled. One day I discovered the vetiver EO by a very expensive popular brand and I fell in love, but was immediately heart-broken, after finding that 15ml was just short of $50. After again trying several cheap brands, like the ones that had turned me off the scent originally, I nearly gave up on vetiver, but then I discovered Camden Grey's wildcrafted vetiver and it is equal if not better than the unnamed expensive brand. I LOVE IT. I will never stop purchasing this oil and I thank heaven for Camden Grey, every day!
A mysterious aura.
I tried both the dark and light vetiver oils. Both are really beautiful; this one though is nearer to what I thought vetiver was. The smoky/leathery side is really present and it’s somwhat bewitching. It has a dense smell that lingers for a long time. The rooty/earthy side is also very obvious and pleasant. This “light” version is definitely lighter than the dark version, but it’s still heavier than most of the essential oils out there. Light vetiver has a really velvety and mysterious aura – almost a ghostly presence that is never screaming out loud but that you know is there in the shadows. It’s kind of a voodoo scent that will haunt you for a long long time.
Wasn't sure what to expect-but i loved it!!
Between the light and dark my favorite is dark. Light is a little more perfumy, whereas the dark has a stronger smokey scent. I, however, tend to like things more potent. I would like to try it in cp soap and see if it stays pretty dominant or if if tones it down any. I could definitely see this in a guys product.
LOVE this oil. I wasn't sure what to expect, and ended up loving it. It smells smoky and woody without smelling like a fire. Great for masculine blends, and earthy/centering blends.
I really love using Vetiver in my perfumes and I am very happy Camden and Grey's product. THANKS!
I enjoy this oil very much. It is very aromatic and does help soothe a persons nerves. I used this in a heart palpitation blend, and it worked like a charm for a couple of clients and myself when I was having a wee bit of anxiety from a jam packed schedule! Cant recommend this enough!
Never smelled Vetiver before
This is my first experience with Vetiver and I must say, I'm hooked. It's smell reminds me of a forest after a rain. Not musty or moldy, but rather fresh and clean. Said to be a great base note and fixative for other scents and I look forward to blending a cologne with this oil.
This is def one of my favorite oils. I can't even begin to explain the benefits of this oil. I am so looking forward to experimenting with this. When taking in the smell it is very powerful and beautiful. It relaxes you, give you..well me, a sense of confidence and relaxation. It's very sexy as well. It can be used for men as well as women. It does my skin justice as well. Helped heal my skin blemishes, blending with other essentials. Even used it by itself at times. I truly ADORE this oil! Thank you Camden...
Incredible depth and value
This Vetiver has a smell of dry earth, green sandalwood, fresh green moss, frankincense, myrrh, honey, fresh-cut grass and dewey sunrise (if that had a scent) all in one! It simultaneously awakens you and seems to slip your mind into instant alpha brain waves - excellent for meditation, writing, healing, pranayama or any creative work you can imagine. I'm not brave enough to try using it on my facial skin yet, as I am sticking with oils like sandalwood and others that I know help my skin already, but suffice to say, this is a VERY high quality vetiver essential oil at a very good price. I'm impressed, & I'm not easily impressed in the essential oil realm!
Intensely smoky vetiver
I've smelled many vetivers and this is tied for best. Unusually sharp-smoky quality makes it ideal for masculine fragrances - doesn't have the sweet/round topnote of Indian vetivers. Dark, deep, and tenacious. If you haven't smelled vetiver and are reading this, you should try this one. As usual, CG offers great value.
Perfect woody base
This Vetiver is the one that really got me hooked! I now use it in most products from face serum to liquid soap and I'm now working with it in both masculine and feminine colognes. I find it just rounds everything out so well, it's become my base note go-to. The combination with rosewood is a new favorite of mine.
Vetiver is a favorite EO of mine. As is well known, it is used extensively in the fragrance industries as a long-lasting, spicy, oriental, woody base note in many parfum and cologne blends. It is typically used in "masculine" formulations but also works very well in "feminine" blends when used sparingly and in conjunction with floral, citrus and green notes. This particular version is a favorite of my favorites. Haitian vetiver has a slightly smoky character but it seems much less intense than the sometimes overwhelming smokiness of Indonesion vetiver. CG also offers it at the most competitive price I've found from a public online source. Love it!
Vetiver Essential Oil
This is a very strong earthy scent. The smell appears to have a combination of earth and smells of green plants. Not a stand- alone scent! But combined wtih other essential oils - it's very pleasing. I use this for my 'manly' soaps. Combined with Cedarwood and sage, it's a great bass note.
Great for stretch marks!
I got this to put in my stretch mark and face creams and am very pleased with it for therapeutic purposes. Not a scent I'd seek out, but it does good things for you!
