Absolutely Vital is a fragrance signed by perfumer Yves Cassar who created it of top quality ingredients from LMR (an IFF property in Grasse), in honor of Diana Vreeland’s love of India and sandalwood. This precious blend is composed Indian sandalwood wrapped in silky aromas of Turkish rose and Egyptian jasmine absolute, softened with myrrh and opoponax. The fragrance closes with vanilla shades providing a sensual experience on the skin, leaving a warm and soft trail. Available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. Absolutely Vital was launched in 2014.

Perfume rating: 3.31 out of 5 with 17 votes.

Absolutely Vital Fragrance Reviews


I already wear Perfectly Marvellous and thought I would revisit this range to try the others. If I were going to buy a second one, this would be my choice. At first the strongest note is the sandalwood, then some powdery florals come to the fore and after several hours on the skin, the woody notes come back into prominence. Oudh isn't listed as an ingredient but the top notes did suggest a light touch of Oudh alongside the sandalwood.

There are so many sweet scents on the market at the moment but there's not an atom of sweetness in Absolutely Vital. This is a dry perfume in the same way that a fino sherry is dry.

How you react to a scent is so very personal and for me, although I like this very much, Perfectly Marvellous is the stand out perfume in the range.


I won a full bottle tester of Absolutely Vital at the Sniffapaloosa Fall Ball. I love it.

This is definitely a perfume for grown-ups. I'm not good with notes, etc. but I can tell you this smells like Christmas with all the balsam and other greens. So glad I was introduced to this wonderful woody fragrance.

If you like spicey perfumes you will like this.


My thoughts are that I cannot believe that they are charging $250 for these and that they are good as mainstream scents, not anything comparable to niche scents.
