Vetiver is one of my fave perfume notes. It’s earthy. It’s woody. It’s smoky.
Too often, it’s also an afterthought in women’s fragrances. Just a pinch here or a sprinkle there to add some warmth and earthiness to the drydown, but that’s about it. You have to shop in the men’s aisle, if you want a vetiver that really packs a punch.
At least, you had to. London-based perfume house Miller Harris has just launched Vetiver Insolent, an unisex vetiver scent that’s as bold as it’s intriguing. If you’re the kind of girl that only likes delicate floral scents or uber sweet gourmand concoctions, Vetiver Insolent will make you run a mile. Everyone else, prepare to fall in love.
