Vetiver Essential Oil from Haiti is considered the finer quality oil for fine fragrances and perfumery, as the consistency is not quite as thick as most Vetiver oil and the aroma is sweet and slightly milder. Vetiver essential oil is one of the most biochemically complex oils, in that it contains at least 150 aromatic compounds. Since the chemical properties in Vetiver Essential Oil are a function of the soil it is grown in, each batch of Vetiver will have subtle and unique fragrance variations.
