Description

Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental is woody oriental fragrance using vetiver root. It is very mossy, rich with vetiver and made more complex with the addition of chocolate! and labdanum.  A little gourmand, a little incense, this makes for an original vetiver scent.

Review of Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose.

from perfumeposse - "Vetiver Oriental is one that I don’t think I’ve reviewed before, but it’s a beautiful scent. Typical of a Lutens, you’re going to have to wait for the eponymous ingredient to show up. The opening is very green with a hint of soft chocolate. The vetiver comes forward in the middle along with wood notes, with the chocolate being thoroughgoing. I think my Scent Twin put it best in her review when she wrote that Vetiver Oriental has the “feeling of a dark jungle, exotic and wild.”

from thenonblonde - "Vetiver is often described as green, earthy, dirty, dark and bitter. But in this case it's also rich and chocolatey, a note one would not necessarily expect to find in such a rooty, balsamic scent. It emerges from behind the green, making it at once sweet and mysterious, just as you'd hope to find in an oriental perfume, but still very unusual. It adds to the lush feeling you get from the woods and the mosses, and blends well with both the dark and the creamy notes.

What I'm getting is a feeling of a dark jungle, exotic and wild. As it unfolds it beauty, you also sense the danger that lurks just behind, tempting you to go in deeper. So I spray a little more, to get more of that green and wait for another wave of chocolate and magic to emerge. Maybe that's how the green liquid in the bottle is disappearing so fast."

    It's a sample I'll wear but not a bottle I'd buy

    I don't get the chocolate, amber, or much complexity from this scent. Perhaps the musk. For me, it smells like a citrus-y synthetic vetiver. It's nice because all vetiver is nice and fresh to me. But there's something that really puts me off, that synthetic element (maybe it's synthetic musk?) that reminds me of a cheaper perfume. I'll still sprinkle the sample on if it's a "crisp white shirt" day, but then I'll move on to other vetiver fragrances when I run out.

    A Wet and Dark Vetiver

    I find this vetiver quite damp and dark for my taste. This scent feels a little gormand because of the dark chocolate note. The guaiac wood and sandlewood does add extra weight to this scent. The longevity is good. I consider this a winter scent.
