With a name like Vétiver Oriental before even smelling the fragrance you're expecting it's going to deliver an incredible bold, yet smooth scent. It's a name that stands out from the shelf and makes you want to learn more about the scent formulation and in turn the result - luckily for Serge Lutens, this fragrance doesn't disappoint on any level. It is one very special fragrance. Vétiver Oriental is a bouquet based on the luminous freshness of vetiver offering you a rare interpretation of this essence, both gentle and profound.
Today, Vétiver Oriental is coming back to the fold of Parfums Serge Lutens, for the space of a limited edition. Delighted with this new opportunity to seduce, it has adopted the rectangular bottle, adorned a black label and slipped into the famous beige case. An invitation to a poetic walk in the depths of a luminous undergrowth.
Vetiver is one of my favourite ingredients in fragrances, vetiver is a tropical grass that is native to India. The oil used in fragrances and many other things is derived from the root of the plant. It has a woody, earthy note, very unique, masculine and used in many male fragrances around the world.
The fragrance blend has a delicate yet matured hint of sandalwood combined with chocolate and musk.
