A new chapter
narciso rodriguez introduces a fresh chapter in the iconic for him collection with for him vetiver musc, the elemental and aromatic new fragrance that offers an olfactive escape to the sensual balance of nature. Marking a return to the essential, for him vetiver musc embodies a new masculinity – a man connected with the elements. Taking inspiration from vibrant minerals rich evergreen forests and fragrant wood, for him vetiver musc balances the rich beauty of vetiver with an aromatic mineral heart, and sensual muscs.

A fresh expression
for him vetiver musc sees a transition from the magnetic intensity of the bleu noir collection, towards a fresh new olfactive expression. ‘for him vetiver musc is a new chapter which evolves the for him collection towards a more sensitive, multi-faceted masculinity, created by the new floral, aromatic and mineral facets’, says Mathilde Bijaoui, the celebrated perfumer who worked with Narciso Rodriguez to craft its newest creation.

Woody notes of textural vetiver with dry, intensifies the signature narciso rodriguez musc, while the aromatic mineral heart gives the scent a striking elemental quality. ‘The minerality comes from many different facets,’ explains Mathilde Bijaoui. Crisp and spicy cardamom, aromatic geranium incense, leather and moss-like red seaweed – a beautiful ingredient that has a distinctive mossy aspect. This mineral quality is what makes the fragrance so unique.

A aromatic fusion
The fragrance opens with vibrant spicy top notes, the effervescence of green cardamom pods highlighting warm nutmeg and upcycled cypress essential oil. This evolves to reveal a fusion of the iconic signature musc with aromatic florals of geranium bourbon, lavandin essential oil, and red seaweed essence. Gradually the heart unfurls to a warm cedarwood, patchouli and rich, earthy vetiver. ‘Vetiver and musc are the two pillars of the fragrance.’ savs Mathilde Bijaoui. ‘Vetiver can have a tender facet that associates perfectly with the heart of musc, while musc has a textured quality that complements the woodiness of vetiver.’

An elemental design
for him vetiver musc introduces a fresh new palette, shifting from the deep blue hues of the bleu noir collection, to a vibrant light green. Evocative of the fragrance within, this pure green hue reinvents the clean, architectural form and iconic graphic silhouette of the for him bottle.

A matte green rectilinear cap finishes the design, complementing the translucent green tint of the bottle itself. This serene color palette is continued into the exterior packaging of for him vetiver musc, with a textured outer box in the same matte green.
