Vetyver mixes the distinctive masculine energy with a bold and independent femininity. It is the essence of individuality and forward-thinking attitude.
The inspiration: Bright, sparkling, and cool, Vetyver reveals a personal love story between Sylvie Chantecaille and the men whom she's loved and admired. "My father always wore it, and my husband wears it now," she says. "For a woman to wear it, it has always been such a bold choice. It's a scent with a long history, one that I wanted to explore in a fresh, more modern way."
Hence, in this new chapter of Vetyver, Chantecaille explores the balance between masculine and feminine. "It is essentially the scent of a very cool, chic man that I've interpreted for an utterly modern and confident woman," Chantecaille says. Imagine that relaxed elegance and confidence of Katharine Hepburn in a beautifully tailored suitVetyver is infinitely chic and optimistic.
The scent: An exotic grass native to Haiti and Indonesia whose roots yield a fragrant, earthy scent, Vetyver is often incorporated as a key ingredient in unisex fragrances. This clean, dry, subtly woody scent is punctuated by the pine-like Juniper. Brighter notes of Citron, Pepper, Nutmeg, and Bergamot lighten Vetyver's bold heart, adding a cozy warmth matched by an invigorating freshness. Spicy, unexpectedly sexy hints of Musk and Sandalwood give Vetyver an alluring quality that is deeply feminine and casually sophisticated.
