Hiram Green has launched Vetiver, a new unisex natural fragrance.
This spicy and woody fragrance is what Hiram Green imagines heartthrobs of Hollywood's golden age smelled like: elegant and charming, yet vigorous and adventuresome.
The perfume takes its name from vetiver, an extraordinary tropical grass that originates from India. Its smell is complex: at the same time fresh, spicy, earthy and woody. Although vetiver is a popular ingredient in men's perfumes, inspiring examples of less masculine fragrances can certainly be found in perfume history. As you may expect, Hiram Green's Vetiver refuses to choose sides.
Vetiver opens with a sharp aromatic blend of citrus fruits, followed by fresh ginger. At its heart all facets of vetiver are present. To add extra depth and complexity Hiram Green included two varieties of vetiver, one from Haïti and the other from Java. Once the vetiver heart begins to subside, cedarwood and ambrette seed provide a soft and gentle finish.
Hiram Green Vetiver is available now at Etiket in Canada, C$200 for 50 ml Eau de Parfum.
HG’s offerings are always worth a sniff, even if one is not, for instance, a huge vetiver fan…
Oh dear, being a vetiver fan AND a HG fan, I better start saving my pennies!
I am a fan of both too, but for whatever reason — maybe I am already covered? — I don’t get excited about vetiver “soliroots” these days.
Love the word “soliroots”!
Hiram Green and Vetiver? Yes, please. (Even though I’m sure I fall into the already covered category too?)
never have I ever worn a Hiram Green…but this could change.
Ok, who’s going to do a split of this? Count me in for a “large sample.” Even the HGs I hate are interesting.
Count me in, too! Not all the Hiram Greens I’ve tried have been “me,” but they’ve all been damn good!
