Vetiver lovers, rejoice! Umbra takes a classic note and adds just the right complements to make it unique. The opening is peppery and crisp, and the heart reveals a dewy freshness like a cool morning walk in a forest. There's a slight whisper of smoke in the air, perhaps from last night's campfire, and the effect is just enough edge to make Umbra a noteworthy addition to the world of vetiver scents. Notes include Haitian vetiver root, tree moss, Madagascar black pepper, geranium leaves, fir balsam, and tonka bean.
