I went to the local L'Occitane shop to take a whiff of their Vetyver fragrance after having read it's praised so much. This is a fresh-dry woody smell. I liked it so much I bought this last week. Some fragrance bottles are pure works of art, this one isn't. Far from it, it looks like an old medicine bottle, an observation that's enhanced by its brown colour. Not a lot of money went into its design and manufacture by the looks of it. Likewise no money went into marketing the fragrance: no famous face and/or glossy ads seducing you to buy it. The quality of the fragrance is its main selling point. A 100 ml bottle sells for only €39.50. An excellent scent for little money.
Update. I now own the Vetyver shower gel too... Great stuff.
