Scent focus: Vetiver

It's deep, woody, and a vital ingredient in the make up of so many of our favourite scents - not least our own Himalaya scent. But what is vetiver and where does it come from?


What is vetiver? Vetiver is a perennial grass native to India. 

Where does the scent come from? The scent oil is extracted from the grass's roots, while the surface grass is often used as animal food or in the production of furniture and in particular blinds. 

How often is it used for its scent? A lot! It's believed that the use of vetiver in perfumery dates back to the 12th century. Because of its woody, earthy nature, vetiver is most commonly used in creating masculine scents. It is used in many popular male fragrances including Terre d'Herme, Creed and Dior's Eau Sauvage

What makes it so special? Like cedarwood, vetiver's deep scent improves with age. Often supplies of vetiver oil are left to develop for many months before use. 

What other scents compliment vetiver? Bergamot, cedarwood, patchouli, sandalwood, Oudh. 

What other uses are there for vetiver? The oil is believed to have calming therapeutic benefits and is also a natural anti-inflammatory.
