Very Mature... in a good way
I have the Tom Ford Vetiver and for whatever reason I feared the scents would be similar. Both are very mature but for different reason. The Carven has an ample amount of wood notes... like coming in from a bonfire or a campfire. Without the smoke. I'm sure I am not describing this scent to the best of my abilities. It has a "definitely wearing cologne" scent but I still love it even though I am a "lighter... could be wearing cologne" scents like Kenneth Cole and Gucci Guilty.
