Vetiver is a typical and popular base note in perfumes. It has a sweet, warm, earthy, woody scent.
Vetiver goes well with most other essential oils. It is widely used in perfumery, especially in amber, chypre and fougere perfumes. The combination with cedar wood and rose is classic. The oil is very viscous.

The vetiver oil is quite pricey, it is expected that the oil will become even more expensive. The reason is that to harvest the roots of the vetiver plant a lot of soil has to be moved, for 10 ml of oil about 4000 kg of soil has to be turned up (and the roots still have to be removed from that).

Our vetiver oil is a purely natural essential oil.

Vetiver oil is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. It contains none of the allergens designated by the EU as the most common contact allergens in perfume compositions.
