Review | Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea eau de toilette

Kiehl’s recently launched a new Aromatic Blends line called Vetiver & Black Tea, and when I got the chance to try the eau de toilette from the line I was very excited. And very intrigued as well, because I really had no idea what to expect from these two interesting ingredients!

The Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea eau de toilette comes in a simple yet gorgeous glass bottle with raised print and a lovely retro vibe. Beautiful! Kiehl’s clearly stays true to its old roots – the brand has been around for more than 150 years – and I for one think that’s fantastic.

Like I said in the introduction, the ingredients in the Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea eau de toilette are very interesting, and the fragrance is a lot different from what I usually wear. On one hand you have the dry, earthy, woody smell of Haitian vetiver, and on the other hand you have the elegant touch of black tea. Together this results in a subtle, slightly smokey and quite sexy smell. The Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea eau de toilette also has a bit of a masculine character, so don’t expect to get something floral, sweet or fresh. Instead get ready for a very unique, sophisticated and seductive scent. Yep, definitely interesting!

I won’t lie, I had to get used to the smell a bit and at first I really didn’t know whether I liked it or not. But then the fragrance started to grow on me, and I can now say that I quite like this unique and intriguing fragrance. And I believe that if you are into niche perfumes you will feel the same way about the Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea eau de toilette.

The Kiehl’s Vetiver & Black Tea eau de toilette is available in 30 and 100 ml for respectively 47 and 69 CHF.

  1. I haven’t seen this yet. Will definitely check it out next time I go to a Kiehl’s counter here. I love Vetiver! I actually made an oil with it for one of my kids coz I read it helps with attention deficit. Thanks for this review, Melissa:)
