How? I Apply the Fragrance

3 -9

This is one of few that doesn’t say 100% natural I think it is, but it is one of the few that is not clearly labeled on his website. Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes Love the yuzu in this it just doesn’t last. He smartly doesn’t let the mandarin overplay my thinking is that mandarine supports the Yuzu to not use as much. This is the lightest use of vetiver ever. You can still smell it, but it is airy and uplifting still retaining it’s earthiness.

  1. Yes! The opening is so juicy. I get yuzu/mandarin/grapefruit but don’t care for the salty marine drydown. There’s a body wash at natural food stores ShiKai brand, Yuzu scent. Don’t buy online—too expensive. Should be about $10 I think. It’s amazing.

  2. I think he only makes one natural perfume Vetiver Veritas, marked 100% natural on the bottle. That one was rough for me but interesting because the top is vetiver/mint and the base is citrus! Really makes you question what’s natural and synthetic in other perfumes when someone makes a 100% natural perfume that flips the usual pyramid like that. I think you have a better nose then I and it would be interesting to hear your remarks on it if you picked up a sample.

    1. Interesting catch. This definitely needs cleared up on his website Yuzu and Blanc have no mention of natural. All others in edp mention Natural spray, while Vetiver Veritas mentions 100% natural. That is confusing as hell. This is the stuff that needs cleaned up. Matriarch I think has given the best example by just say xx% natural overall. Marketing natural spray and not having it 100% absolutely needs called out. I will actually seek out the vetiver to see how it fares as a natural perfume. Thanks for heads up Cody.
