Cowboy Grass by D.S. & Durga

There is instead a lot of grass packed into this product, and I get it straight from the beginning. Initially a brighter fresh grass with elements of it reminding me of Geoffrey Beene's Bowling Green at times, enhanced by bergamot; it develops characteristics of dried grass and hay further into the drydown. Thyme, basil and whiffs of sage mean that later on a herbal mix is added that further gives the grass core some interesting nuances. At stages I get a nigh-balsamic aromatic undertone that is rather pleasant.

The base very much belongs to a vetiver impression that starts developing at the earlier stages of the heart notes and grows stronger in the base. It is a fairly earthy vetiver that it not too dark and not as gorgeous as Molinard's vetiver - a gold standard in vetiver, but nonetheless it is quite convincingly done.

The silage is moderate, the projection very good, and the longevity is a brilliant eleven hours on my skin.

Great in spring, a nice country scent that is well made and performing excellently. Not only for cowboys. 3.5/5
