A charming vetiver
This spicy and woody fragrance is what we imagine heartthrobs of Hollywood’s golden age smelled like: elegant and charming, yet vigorous and adventuresome.
The perfume takes its name from and centres around 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 we included two varieties of vetiver, one from Haiti and the other from Java. Once the vetiver heart begins to subside, cedarwood and ambrette seed provide a soft and gentle finish.
Since 2013 Canadian born perfumer Hiram Green has been creating handcrafted perfumes from the finest natural ingredients. His perfumes challenge the often-heard criticism that natural perfumery is boring, fast fleeing and has less sillage than traditional perfumery. Hiram’s perfumes are best described as intense, opulent and expressive. This is in part due to the precious and sometimes extremely costly natural ingredients that he sources from all over the world. The perfumes’ rich colours come from the ingredients therein and give the bottles their jewel-like appearance.
The initial inspiration for a perfume could come from anything: from music to art to travel. An abstract idea is then slowly, and with extreme care and precision, translated into something tangible. It is not uncommon for Hiram to make hundreds of trials over the course of several years before settling on the final formula. The perfumes have been praised by experts and enthusiasts. In 2019, Leather-themed fragrance Hyde won the Art & Olfaction Artisan award. This international award celebrates excellence in independent, artisan and experimental perfumery.
The range currently consists of seven eau de parfums. All perfumes are 100% natural, vegan (with the exception of beeswax absolute in Slowdive) and free of GMO. Nothing is tested on animals. Everything is developed and produced in small batches in Hiram’s studio in Gouda, The Netherlands.
