Here's what other people are saying about Route Du Vetiver...
This is from a sample which I received in 2018: Route du Vetiver does not remind me of the dark earth of the American north. But it does bring back memories of a Mediterranean pine forest on a hot, sunny day, when the heat roasts the surfaces and brings out the fragrances. There could be grilling nearby, perhaps some almost dry, rotting plant, and small fragrant flowers. To me, it has something animalic, but it is also still a perfume. A marriage that went well. ...and as I sit here, it still reminds me of the summer. I am wondering whether it pairs better with Brunello or a homemade Retsina. Probably both, since the fragrance suits the mundane, yet not too tame, gentleman. Closest relative which I have smelled: Yosh König

As usual, this was better before the reformulation(s?) few years ago. It used to be a VERY aggressive--in, to me, a good way--fragrance, and has sheathed its claws quite a bit. The good news is that it is still an unusually earthy take on vetiver, and the dry down eventually comes very close to the original. My husband still likes wearing it. Of the reviews below, note that the 2006 refers to an earlier version.

I survived the burnt rubber , slept on crushed stems . Now nothing can stop me , I obey the law of the soil, the surface subtracted.

An out-of-control riot of vetiver, at least at first. Could be off putting, but if you stick with it, it smoothes out and calms down. Then it is much better. Interesting and exotic, earthy, and yes, still a little nuts! You either love it or hate it, not in between with this one. I love it (I think).
