Vetiver Creed Type

The Inspiration: Vetiver Creed (1948)

This discontinued classic cologne features top notes of citrus and bergamot, a ginger heart, and base notes of vetiver, cedarwood, and amber. It is more of an evening scent. We have a special kit that provides the fragrance notes you need to make something that is inspired by this cologne. 

Here's a starting point, using oils that are available in our store. (DISCLAIMER: I have never smelled Vetiver Creed, so I have no idea if this recipe approximates it. I just took the notes, and made something I liked out of them). This recipe is given in ratios (x:100), which is good if you're measuring by the drop or need to calculate for your own bottles size, but also is automatically adjusted for our 9ml bottles and 30 ml bottles.
