The codistilled essential oil of Vetiver and Edward Rose(Rosa bourboniana) is a golden-brown liquid displaying a suave, roseaceous, green, ambery top/heart note intermingled with the earthy/rooty heart/base note created by the vetiver. Deep in the dryout phase a very unique, sweet, powdery, resinous/earthy note establishes itself and radiates for many hours after that.
As with all the codistilled vetiver/floral oils, this essence requires continued study as it reveals delightful facets of its aromatic personality with the passage of time.
Each of the codistillations has maintained its aromatic intergrity on the perfumer's strip for well over 24 hours. I dip the perfumers strip into the oil and then afix it to a clip which is on a stand next to where I sit so as I work at the computer I can study the life of the essence over time. There is the overall radiation of the oil which one can smell as they go in and out of the room and also the nuances of it as one studies it close up on the strip. The two experiences together give a nice sense of the overall qualities in each essence. The close up study reveals the complex beauty of the aforementioned roseaceous, dry-ambery, green top/heart note living amidst the fine rooty earthiness of the vetiver. The room itself is permeated by the radiation of the combined aroma of the two oils presenting a vision of an ancient perfume tradition which is distinctly Indian in its exotic richness and Eastern atmosphere. There is something about the combination of rose with vetiver that captures this atmosphere in a profound way.
