Ripened by a long summer's sun, whispers of golden grass conceal an unexpected surprise. With a natural air of grace, the lasting scent of Vetiver Veritas is guaranteed by a composition containing over 90% Haitian Vetiver of exceptional quality. Characteristic notes of dry grass and clean earth combine with a hint of fresh mint that infuses life and vitality. But the real surprise is concealed until the base notes fade to a top note of fresh grapefruit.

Lavender, Mint, Haitian Vetiver, Grapefruit

Eau de Parfum

Suitable for formal events or everyday during winter.

Made in France

While everyone else is busy trying to purify and prettify the vetiver note, Heeley gives us a fragrance where its savage beauty is on full display. This is an exercise in enhancement, not modification. For the Haitian vetiver note – completely natural and pure – sings at the centre of the stage, whilst a furry texture is imparted by lavender, green grassy freshness is furthered with mint, and in between the folds of this fragrance is the bitter tonic-like edge of grapefruit. Can’t find it? Consider the smell of Campari as your referent – and the fragrance magically undergoes a Gestalt switch.

Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire - with a little funk

Frederic Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire is my masterpiece yardstick. Nothing excites and comforts me more than that fragrance. I have never found anything close to it. So, with Vetiver Veritas I was a little apprehensive because the reviews suggested an overly-raw, unenjoyable vegetal beast. This has not been my experience - VV very much has the qualities of Malle's masterpiece - just a step or two back in the evolutionary chain. It is a gorgeous, deep vetiver and definitely more raw than Malle's - but no less exciting. The main difference between the two is the slightly funked (rotten) cut yellow grass angle that sits near the top. Malle shaved this away and produced a smoother experience. Heeley keeps it real. I adore it and it's one of my top 3 blind buys because it's just such a relief to know there's more than one titanic source of this note. Beautiful.
