Well, I discovered something just now. As I opened up my Serge Lutens salon exclusive samples, I dabbed a couple on my wrists. One was Cuir Mauresque (Dimples, you are right about this one, it's wonderful); the other was Vetiver Original. Now I've never really smelled Vetiver in isolation before, but suddenly I realised that's the note I smell in a lot of men's fragrances that I really dislike. It's what I called the bath bubbles note - because it reminds me of 1970s bath foam. And there was me thinking it was a marine note...but no, it's vetiver. Well, you learn something new every day!
