Love EO

This is such a nice manly musky smell. Works great in aftershave balm.

Men Frolicking In Dry Grass

Decidedly masculine scent that instantly reminds me of my grandfather. He used to wear the old formulation of Versace L'homme (which if I am not mistaken has a decidedly vetiver note). This oil is smokey, green and deep. A little goes a long way

Karlen Nel
Nice woody fragrance

It is lovely to diffuse it at night with Lavender and Ylang Ylang to calm your mind and ease anxiety... It's a thick oil and one drop goes a long way... Thank you so much for providing this wonderful oil at an affordable price...
