At its heart, spices underscore its strength: Pepper and nutmeg blend in a dryly elegant and slightly spicy accord. Then comes the majestic and vibrant Vetiver, which deploys all of its woody sensuality on the skin in distinguished, noble notes of cedar and the amber softness of Tonka bean.
Jean-Paul Guerlain offers a particularly original reinterpretation of Vetiver. Whereas one is fresh and woody, the other is just as woody but aromatic. Ever loyal to the original framework, this accord is more intense. Each facet of the vetiver root has been finely worked to preserve its essence and its uniqueness. The perfumer’s entire art is incarnated in a veritable “esprit de parfum”. This is an adventurer’s perfume, a spontaneous fragrance that gradually unveils its irrepressible charm, a trait which is reflected in the pure lines and blunt profile of its bottle.
