Highly unusual with its overdose of vetiver (close to 25 percent, three times as much as contained in other vetiver perfumes), Frédéric Malle’s Vétiver Extraordinaire has sparked new enthusiasm for this classic men's fragrance category. Here perfumer Dominique Ropion introduces a new essence of Haitian vetiver, stripped of its bitter edge, which he matches with five woody notes to play up the scent's various facets. The result is surprisingly fresh, crisp and harmonious.
Dominique Ropion trained at the legendary Roure Bertrand Dupont laboratory before going to work with Jean-Louis Sieuzac, one of the perfumery world's great technicians. What makes Ropion's work special is the mix of precision and freedom, and his quest to create new, harmonious accords by pairing ingredients that are polar opposites. An adventurer who abandons himself to instinct, Dominique Ropion is also extremely rigorous in the final stages of the formulation of each of his fragrances.
