Lime Leaf & Vetiver is a perfume that has been handmade with highly fragrant lime leaves to give it a green, floral-citrus aroma. It also contains vetiver, more commonly known as khus khus grass, a tropical grass native to India and grown extensively in Barbados and other tropical regions of the world. Vetiver – or khus khus oil – is extracted from the roots of the grass by steam distillation and has a very intense, smoky, earthy and woody aroma.
This is a lovely green and herbal perfume, suitable for those who like earthy, unisex and non-traditional scents. The principle notes are lime peel, Barbadian lime leaf, coriander and vetiver (khus khus). It’s currently available as a perfume oil, in a convenient 10 ml roll-on bottle at Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Bathsheba, St. Joseph.
