Vetiver

Against the Day, 545:

She pressed his hand and was gone in a mist of vetiver, abruptly as the other evening.

Vetiver:

1. the long, fibrous, aromatic roots of an East Indian grass, Vetiveria zizanioides, used for making hangings and screens and yielding an oil used in perfumery.
2. Also called khus-khus. the grass itself.
