Villoresi Vetiver

In 1994, Villoresi launched this raucous and raw rendition of vetiver onto an unsuspecting public. Some are still reeling from shock and awe.

At first, this made me recoil a bit from its crudeness and volume. It has taken a few wearings of Vetiver to appreciate its earthy and slightly nutty aroma. This smell is ingrained in what appears to be a plank of dry, sun-worn rosewood that someone sprinkled with conventional black pepper. Yes...dinner table pepper.

I liken Lorenzo Villoresi as being the Frank Zappa of the fragrance world. He's a bit nuts, in-your-face and usually raw enough to sport a T-Shirt that has " The Ugly Truth" emblazened across the front of it. Villoresi is a take it or leave it parfumeur and regardless of whether or not his scents are for you, they are a force to be reckoned with for sure.
