"The dewy rainforest, the red abstract volcanic soil with a ray of sunshine."
At the heart of this composition are three varieties of vetiver, combined with soft sensual sandalwood notes and violet leaf extract. Uplifting marine notes with a touch of grapefruit and natural orange flower absolute add optimism and brightness when combined with the energy of the bergamot top. A ball of green freshness after the rain plays with natural green leaf extract from violets grown in Egypt, as French sage and labdanum vapors of organic woodiness, and molecular musks and moss wrap the fragrance with a transparent veil.
Vetiver is a grass that grows on the volcanic slopes in Java, La Reunion and Haiti. It can grow as fast as 1-2 inches per day. From the profusion of roots (a nightmare to dig out), the oil is extracted using steam distillation or solvents. By using real natural Vetiver you help 100,000 small farmers around the world and their families.
Perfumes go through a number of revisions before they are exactly what the perfume wants it to be. Each modified formula receives a number which is on the front of every bottle of The Zoo. Christophe Laudamiel has taken VETYVER RAIN SKIN from version 3 to 42. The work was painstaking, adjusting some ingredients to comply with the latest regulations. He wasn't satisfied with the new version until it was as good or not better than what has been available until now. He increased the amount of vetiver, drawing from four sources of the ingredient. It's the same fragrance you love, but less icy.
