Vetiver essential oil

This is Vetiver essential oil, found in many perfumes and eau de toilettes. They plant this many places but I know for sure it is found in Ethiopia and Kenya.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Perfume

Narciso Rodriguez makes and incredibly complex and unique perfume in For Her. At the very first spritz and spray, I did not like this though, it was too much, too heady and I worried about a headache coming on. The ladies at Nordrstrom really really wanted me to try it though, which I did a bit reluctantly. I have to say that this perfume isn't what it seems at first blush. You have to try it on, and faintly smell it, like on your wrist or top of hand. Wait 3 minutes, then smell it again. Then wait for one half hour then smell it again. This scent mixes with your own chemistry in many neat ways! I read many online reviews about it, and woman after woman said the same. It definitely will get people's attention.

I now like it much more than at first, now that it has seemed to settle into my skin. Those of you that know perfumes and pay attention to these things know what I mean. Its very sexy almost, a wonderful musk base if you like that. Its so much more than a musk though. I will say that many people shared in their reviews, that they always get compliments on this. I will say to Narciso Rodriguez, that this is one work of art. Its like a palette of just the right notes to create the final piece of art. You definitely must try this one, and not judge it immediately for its complexity.

You will find honey flower, radiant amber, and tactile woods being expressed in this eau de toilette or parfum. The actual notes are Honey flower, Musk, Orange Blossom, Amberlyn, Osmanthus, Vanilla, Vetiver, and Tactile Musk and Woods.

The perfume comes in a beautiful pink bottle, while the eau de toilette comes in an amazing dark black bottle like nothing else I have ever seen. Very sultry perfume, but then its not over the top. A definite must try.
