Vétiver Santal Eau de Parfum
MARIE JEANNE - VÉTIVER SANTAL EAU DE PARFUM
At once fresh and powerful, Vétiver Santal successfully combines the rustic scent of vetiver with the smooth scent of sandalwood by way of vetiver's hazelnut facets and sandalwood's milky facets. This brilliant pairing is further augmented by the addition of sweet notes of benzoin and the earthy din of patchouli for a perfume that simply exudes elegance and modernity.
- Top - Bergamot, lemon, petitgrain
- Middle - Sandalwood, vetiver, cypress
- Base - Patchouli, benzoin, white musk
A balsamic resin obtained from the bark of the Styrax tonkinensis tree, benzoin is an indispensable and iconic raw material, coveted the world over for its sweet, balsamic aroma. Benzoin is naturally rich in vanillin, the main odorous component of vanilla, which contributes to its sweet woody scent.
Though patchouli oil is classified as a woody material, it's obtained from the leaves of this tropical member of the mint family. Once processed, patchouli oil possesses an earthy, humus-like aroma with spicy facets and undertones of cacao.
Native to the islands of New Caledonia and Vanuatu in the South Pacific, Santalum austrocaledonicum possesses an aroma profile that is exceedingly close to that of Mysore sandalwood: rich, sweet-woody with an unparalleled complexity and depth and a smooth, creamy drydown. Moreover, New Caledonian sandalwood is sustainably-grown and ethically harvested to ensure the long-term viability of this truly remarkable material.
It may come as a surprise that the robust, woody aroma of vetiver oil is obtained from the roots of a type of grass. Owing to its pleasant aroma and excellent fixative properties, vetiver has enjoyed a long history of use in perfumery. Its unique woody-earthy aroma possesses a certain degree of freshness with facets of hazelnut and grapefruit.
Like most citrus fruits, the bergamot orange is a hybrid—genetic research has indicated that the bergamot is most likely a hybrid of the lemon and bigarade orange. Production of bergamot is mostly limited to the province of Reggio di Calabria on Southern Italy's Ionian coast, where climatic and soil conditions are favorable to the cultivation of this small, pear-shaped citrus fruit. Bergamot oil is expressed from the ripe peel of the fruit and possesses a citrusy aroma that is variously described as bitter and tart with mild spicy facets and a complex aromatic elements.
