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.
