When it comes to perfumes that define sweet summertime, the most beloved go-to scents of the sunny season are typically lightweight by nature. More often than not, they also tend to feature yummy top notes that are strongest at first spritz, like juicy peach for one, or even a breezy coconut note that gives it that tropical vibe.

As you head into the cooler fall season, however, fragrances tend to be a bit heavier in comparison, not dissimilar to throwing on extra layers, like your favorite worn leather jacket. What’s more, perfume compositions lean on the warmth of amber or even a bit of spice for that ultra-cozy feel.

Vetiver is one of those notes in perfumery that is a bit of a chameleon, adapting with the seasons and adding a dry earthiness that signals to both the heat of August and the chill of winter. “Vetiver can be used to enhance the freshness and woody warmth of a fragrance, or intensify the richness and depth,” notes Pascal Gaurin, the perfumer behind Henry Rose’s newest scent, Boys Of Summer.

Given that similarly woody notes have been a staple for the fashion-forward it-girls — namely, guaiac wood — it makes all the sense in the world that vetiver would appear in some of the most sultry and unique indie scents on the market.

The type of scent that can be shared with anyone, Boys Of Summer is defined by awakening lavender, crisp pink peppercorn, and the warmth of vetiver and patchouli.
