PG6.1 Vétiver Matale by Parfumerie Générale by Pierre Guillaume

In the third episode of the Matale black tea trilogy (see also episodes 6 and 12), the perfumer creates a tender yet robust, androgynous vetiver. A particularly pure essence of Bourbon vetiver, warm and silky with the barest hint of smokiness, blends with green tea leaves and blond tobacco absolute.

The perfume slowly gyrates around its woody-ambery axis, alternating between dark astringent  and soft powdery notes.
