My SOTD is Vetiver Oriental from Serge Lutens, tried for the first time from a sample vial. The 14th selection of my 27-sample vetiver sampler collection. I've been looking forward to trying this based on all the discussion on this board, and I am not disappointed. It is a thick, heavy, somewhat sweet scent that definitely has a lot in common with other Serge Lutens fragrances. In particular, the vetiver here is a bit light, joined immediately by amber, vanilla, perhaps sandalwood, and some spices that are subtly reminiscent of chocolate. This is certainly gourmand, and as such it is a bit much for daily wear in my book, especially on hot days. I think this could be a powerhouse fall/winter scent, just like Ambre Sultan. Very nice, but still not really challenging Guerlain Vetiver, which has both more vetiver and refreshing citrus notes.
