Sometimes I hate that I live in the South, and after getting a sample decant of Vetiver&Golden Vanilla, it is one of those times I wished I lived in a colder climate. This is a warm, cozy, incense, gentle spice fragrance that I think would be best for chilly/cold Autumn and Winter months. Upon first application with the sample dabber, my nose got an instant rush of fresh cut hay...the vetiver. I thought oh no, Yuck!! This smells like a farm. Lol. But, within 2 minutes, that new mowed hay smell was gone. Yay! Now, all I want to do is sniff my wrist. I'm loving on this warm, tea-spice note, which I'm thinking is the cardamon, and it's sweetened with vanilla...Not cloyingly sweet, teen-age vanilla, but a cocoon wrapping, comfy sweater adult vanilla. I don't smell tobacco that many other reviewers picked up on. My nose is getting a more spiritual incense fragrance, but not that in your face Easter church incense...something far more subtle. I'm totally missing the grapefruit or any other citrus scent, however, I'm smelling a sweet jam-like note...not sure where that's coming from. I've always been a person who likes spicy fragrances over florals (loved S.Lutens Chergui), so I don't find this juice a turn-off for a woman. I'll go with unisex. Maybe I'll have hubby try it and see what he and I think? There's slight sillage with just dabbing unto my skin, and longevity is about 5 hours, which is great for a JM fragrance. I have other vanilla frags (Guerlain's Spiritueuse and Essential Parfum's Divine Vanille)...neither resemble this. Never tried TF's TV, so I can't compare, but this is a unique scent for me. Contemplating a FB. Thank you to Scent Split for samples before major purchases.
Vetiver & Golden Vanilla
Too strong and masculine for me. Gave it away to a man.
Lovely scent that features vetiver and vanilla just like the name says. This is my new favorite. Smells natural and soft, not soapy or fake in any way, just as I hope for in a scent.
