Vetiver Oriental

Posted in

Created by Christopher Sheldrake for Serge Lutens, Vetiver Oriental is a dark lush, opulent EDP that highlights the best of vetiver.

Vetiver is a green, dirty, earthy, woody, deep, bitter smelling grass that is most often flanked with citrus or herbs. In this EDP the its green rootiness is heightened by iris, giving it a bright, clear opening. As it moves to the middle it gets darker – resinous, spicy and a little smoky. A note of chocolate accents vetiver’s bitterness, but doesn’t make it sweet. This is not a gourmand scent at all. The base of musk, amber, warm sweet sandalwood is sumptuous, softening and smoothing the bitterness of the chocolate and the vetiver, giving it a rich silkiness.

Vetiver Oriental is luxurious, exotic and opulent – like it was born in some royal Oriental court. The perfect tonic for cold, winter days.
