THE SECRET TO FLASH BACK’S WOODY FRESHNESS
Widely-used and valued since antiquity, vetiver is a perennial bunchgrass whose roots or rhizomes contain a resin similar to myrrh. These roots are harvested, processed and dried to produce essential oil of vetiver; it takes 150 kg of dried roots to produce 1 kg of essential oil.
Vetiver grows in the moist soil of tropical and subtropical lowlands, particularly in marshland and floodplains. After steam distillation, vetiver rhizomes are washed, cut and dried in the sun, resulting in a dense, resinous aroma.
The characteristic aroma of vetiver is both delicate and complex; the aroma of Haitian vetiver is particularly woody and smoky, with subtle green, vegetal nuances.
