Vetiver essential oil is obtained from the vetiver plant, a clumpy green grass native to India that can grow five feet high or more. Vetiver is in the same family as other grasses used for their essential oils, including lemongrass and citronella.
Some people describe it as woody, smoky, earthy and spicy. While others say it smells dry and leathery.
It’s also been said to smell quite a lot like patchouli too.
Because of its woody, smoky, almost rugged, smell vetiver is often classed as being more of a masculine scent and is widely used in colognes and other scented products for men.
Men's fragrances that contain vetiver include Creed Original Vetiver, Carven Vetiver, Annick Goutal Vetiver, Guerlain Vetiver Extreme, Il Profumo Vetiver de Java, Prada Infusion de Vetiver, Lacoste Red Style in Play and Tim McGraw Southern Blend.
Meanwhile, perfumes that contain vetiver include Chanel Sycomore, Lancome Hypnose, Nina Ricci L'Air du Temps, Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche and DKNY Delicious Night.

Blessed with anti-microbial properties, this oil improves blood circulation in the hair follicles, prevents various hair infections and also takes part in collagen formation. It is extremely useful for rejuvenating dull, lifeless hair. Regular use of the oil improves hair texture, adds shine and stimulates hair growth.
Dandruff usually occurs due to excessive dry scalp, humidity in the air and lack of hygiene and eventually leads to itching and flaking. Having a high specific gravity and potent anti-microbial properties, the aromatic oil seeps deep inside the hair follicles, moisturises the scalp, relieves dryness and prevents itching.
