Vetiver Earns GQ’s Stamp of Approval in “The Best Cologne for Fall Is Cozy and Crisp”

Featured in GQ’s article, “The Best Cologne for Fall Is Cozy and Crisp” 

As the leaves begin to transition, so should your fall fragrance. “Just like the season itself, the best fall cologne has a “best of both worlds” kind of uncertainty: The fragrances are shapeshifters, falling squarely between the crisp, floral, and aquatic notes of summer scents, and the warming, sensual, spicy fragrances of winter." 

If you’re still searching for your next signature scent, look no further. Praised by GQ Magazine for its rich notes and reasonable price point, St John's Vetiver is the perfect fall fragrance. Whether you’re complimenting a casual evening or preparing for a night out, Vetiver is the perfect cold weather companion. 


“With summer in the rearview, this vetiver-tinged Virgin Islands scent will tide you over until the next out-of-office email goes up with its spicy, woody, ambrous, and musky notes.” -Adam Hurly for GQ Magazine 

Dignified and dashing, the Vetiver Collection combines grassy, wood, and citrus notes that create a clean yet masculine scent. Our key ingredient, vetiver, is actually a sweet grass found principally in India and the Caribbean. After the grass is freshly cut, we extract the sweet, aromatic oils and combine them with a bit of amber, musk, and cedar to add some weight and depth. We then add top notes of grapefruit, lime, and cardamom to give it a fresh and clean approach. 

Top Notes: Lime, Grapefruit, Cardamom

Heart Notes: Lily of the Valley, Magnolia, Rose, 

Base Notes: Vetiver, Amber, Musk, Cedar, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Cypress

If you're looking to amplify your fragrance throughout the day, we recommend pairing our Vetiver Cologne with our new Aluminum Free Vetiver Deodorant.
