• MY THOUGHTS •
REGALIEN Spade of Vetiver, my little salted vetiver in my collection. It has surprised me at first sniff with its rooty raw vetiver touch only to show it’s marine side hour later. Vetiver opening lasts and lasts and it slowly emerges into marine aura as time passes. In last years I have been drifting apart with many aquatic fragrances from my collection because I started to enjoy the heavier orientals and simply have to make space in my collection. The least I want is to become a bottle hoarder. I thought there is nothing in vetiver world that would surprise me, but this bottle did.
To me it is a gorgeous little emerald in the ocean of vague forever emerging vanillin releases being pumped by the industry in unaccountable and frankly unacceptable proportions. Spade ov Vetiver is piercing green, royal blood of vetivers, aquatic abyss, heart of the ocean. It is as lush and green as Amazonian jungle. I had to get used to the saltiness of it and once I wore it couple of times I knew it is the one for me.
I can only think of one place on earth that conveys the idea of this fragrance which is Duden waterfalls. Seriously, look it up to understand what this fragrance is about: Sun, cliffs, sea, untainted vegetal green and at ease travel, will to go out of your comfort zone to simply be and discover new horizons in the process. To me it is a vetiver waterfall creating it’s multiple rainbows from the seawater droplets while still remaining a solid vetiver release in the process.
It gives me the same vibe as Proofumum Roma’s Acqua di Sale, it may be a helpful point of reference for some of you.
