V For Vetiver
Known for its rich aromatics, the Vardhana dynasty’s capital city Kannauj became the center of 7th century trade. Success was not lost on the emperor, Harshavardhana, who imposed a Vetiver Tax. While many remained silent, a band of fragrance masters believed the new tax would be used to fund violence against innocent people and staged a rebellion. Under the cover of night, these rebels covered the city with aromatic oils. Subdued by the fragrant forces of Kannauj, the tax was abolished.
Rebellious. Defiant. Alluring. V — for Vetiver, a classically earthy and woody essence with a sweet floral finish. Grounding and Inspired. A celebration of the senses, blending the rich legacy of old world aromatics with the contemporary finesse of a new world fragrance master.
