If you think that you 100% aware of how vetiver can and should smell, you’re probably wrong. This note requires a special attitude and deserves a dignified framing. Only under such conditions a vetiver composition of timeless beauty can be born. This is especially true when it comes to the precious Indian 25-year-old vetiver oil Ruh Khus, which forms the heart of Vétiver Nocturne. In order to make the start of the fragrance greener, a young Ruh Khus is used: in its distillation process it passes through the copper pipes and thus acquires green color and smell. The base of the composition consists of the oils of Indonesian Sandalwood and Oud Trat, which were distilled by the perfumer himself with the use of a special infusion technique: during the distillation process wooded materials were enriched by the oils of White Champaca and Thai Jasmine. Floral notes revealed the beauty of Sandalwood oil extracted from the roots of centuries-old Sandalwood trees, which were cut down a long time ago and nowadays only their roots, which were preserved in the ground for years, are available to give us an aromatic material of the highest quality. Only the real Mysore Sandalwood, which is also generously used in the composition, can compete with it in terms of rarity and resplendence. It’s hard to imagine a better framing for the Vetiver note than this.
The precious liquid should be stored in an appropriate bottle of crystal-clear glass with the name of the composition embossed on a durable gold-plated metal plate, with a teak cap treated with coconut oil. Like the foundation of the Taj Mahal, which is made of teak logs, it will serve you forever. Each bottle is numbered and stored in a box of the finest Thai silk, cooling your skin and pleasing to the eye.
