KNOWLEDGE

VETIVER

Knowledge One of the single-ingredient scent concepts for bath and body, Vetiver is green and citrusy with woody notes.

There is a wide spectrum of vetiver scents – from dry, earthy and smoky to moist and clean citrus notes. Its relation to lemongrass is often evident, as is its place in the woods family. Vetiver is a tall tropical grass native to the Indian subcontinent but cultivated today in countries like Haiti, Brazil and Indonesia. The grass is exceptionally resistant and withstands flooding, drought and extreme temperatures. It thrives on marshy riverbeds and because of its dense and fibrous root system, it is often planted to prevent erosion.

Vetiver grass has traditionally been used to make cooling curtains and for scenting rooms in hot and humid climates. The fragrance used in perfumery is, however, obtained from its dried roots.
