In the 1950s, the Guerlain family decided to create a fragrance based on the surprising roots of vetiver. After a few trials, the Guerlain Perfumer succeeded in making a subtle dosage that recalls the exhalations of the earth in the pale dawn light. This evocation of the world’s first morning is enriched with a woody accord and the refined elegance of spices and tobacco to give rise to a rare and sophisticated fragrance.
With its modern geometry and rigorous shapes, Vétiver is an ever-fashionable figure of authentic French elegance.
Vétiver draws its character from an innovative accord in perfumery, crafted on the basis of vetiver, tonka bean, nutmeg, and tobacco.
Incidentally, Guerlain offered a dilution of Vétiver, which was a bestselling fragrance in Mexico for quite a long time. Jean-Paul Guerlain was inspired by this scent to create Vétiver.
