Seems like lots of the more gender neutral or 'masculine' scents contain vetiver. I don't hate vetiver...I'm just getting a little burnt out on it. I think I want a big bottle of Djinn, except that it's just a little heavy on the vetiver for me. I don't know I might still get it.

This is just an observation...I'm not really asking for more suggestions although they're always welcome. I'm done placing orders for a while at this point because I have so many pending orders out there, and it's going to take weeks just to try everything! All I'm saying is now, when I'm reading a description of a fragrance and I come across vetiver, I sort of roll my eyes and write it off. Maybe I'm doing myself a disservice! I better keep an open mind.

Hrm....what exactly is Vetiver?

Vetiver is a grass related to lemongrass...the essential oil is made from the roots of the grass. It smells very earthy/woody. To me it smells a lot like dirt. People have different opinions of what it smells like.

Really? A friend of mine gets a lot of "dirt" smells from stuff as well. I wonder if it's from the same thing? Oh, wait, no. It's Patchoulli.

Yeah, I've wanted to try both...I have somewhere around 25 imps on the way, I should be able to find something I like in there. I'm still pretty crazy about djinn but it turns pretty much to straight vetiver on me after about 2 hours. : (
