Bel Ami Vetiver by Hermès Review
It would be ambitious to expect Bel Ami Vétiver to match the original, and true enough, it falls short of being as memorable as Bel Ami. But this is not a failure, with its opening of zesty notes later to be enveloped by spices. The heart is similar to the original, except now it also features vetiver which to us is a beautiful addition. The woodsy base completes the warm scent that performs great and projects well in chillier seasons.
Mature aroma featuring both citrus and spices
Able to provide warmth during colder seasons
Heavier sillage and longer staying power, even when compared to Bel Ami
We think that the scent would be cloying under hotter weather
Not as remarkable as the original
Pretty niche, not for everyone’s noses
