Created in 1959, Vétiver is the first fragrance creation by Jean-Paul Guerlain. It evokes the quality of nature: freshness and warmth, harmony and disorder. The smells of the earth after the rain, the fresh air of early morning, swirls of tobacco mixed with spices... All of these sources of inspiration gave rise to Vétiver.
In the 1950s, the Guerlain family decided to create a fragrance based on the surprising roots of vetiver. After a few trials, the Guerlain Perfumer succeeded in making a subtle dosage that recalls the exhalations of the earth in the pale dawn light. This evocation of the world's first morning is enriched with a woody accord and the refined elegance of spices and tobacco to give rise to a rare and sophisticated fragrance. With its modern geometry and rigorous shapes, Vétiver is an ever-fashionable figure of authentic French elegance.
Fresh Woody. Natural, sober, elegant.
The fragrance opens on the spontaneous, piquant freshness of citrus fruits with orange, bergamot and lemon. At the heart, spices such as nutmeg and pepper intensify the fragrance, before giving way to vetiver, tobacco and tonka bean. A fresh woody accord for a fragrance with authentic elegance.
