There's also a black tea note and some leathery smokiness. I think the perfumer was trying amplify all the different facets that are present in vetiver. I think it's absolutely worth a try.
Pre-shower: HdP Petroleum. Still don't like it.
SOTD: Jour dHermes. As I've mentioned before, I like this one very much. Reviews at the major perfume websites are generally very positive too. I had given my initial review before any of those appeared, and I noticed that what I said was pretty much in line with what most of the reviewers said. Glad to know I'm not too idiosyncratic!
