Grey Vetiver was produced by Tom Ford and came out in 2009. Said by the producer to be dominant vetiver accompanied with salty notes along with sunny, woody accords. This is an Eau De Parfum.
Top notes breakdown Sage, Orange Blossom, and Grapefruit. Middle notes Pimento, Orris Root, and Nutmeg. Base notes of Vetiver, Woodsy Notes, Amber, and Oakmoss.
After four sprays you have some sillage and a pleasant scent that I can smell clinging to me as I am writing. The top notes of Sage, Orange Blossom, and Grapefruit don’t come on super strong but you definitely notice the Sage. The citrus notes come and go so fast that it is like they were never there. Much like a dream when you wake up. I did find that a little sad for I do like my citrus.
There is a nice spiciness that begins to peak through as the middle note starts to develop. I like the woodsiness of the whole odor as the dry down continues, but the strange thing is that I do actually catch that whiff of saltiness that is wafting about, it hits you right at the top and back of the throat when you breathe it in. Very nice!
The combination of Oakmoss, Amber, and Vetiver is very nice. The longer it sits on the skin the more the vetiver comes out, it is quite heavenly.
I honestly think that I could wear this everyday.
After the second hour or so this has mainly become a very close clinging scent on my body. Which is fine for me since I like to have less sillage and more just for my own pleasure unless someone gets close enough to have a whiff of their own.
It would seem that the consensus is that this is a spring, summer, and possibly fall scent. I could probably agree even though I am wearing it now in the dead of the winter and loving every moment of it. Of course the winter is the time I long for the smell of growing things so it isn’t to odd for me.
