    Default Vetiver Oriental color differences

    Is there any difference in composition of the juice between bottles of Vetiver Oriental that differ in color? I've seen some bottles are more green a la http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/detai...6110&section=2 while others are a bit brownish



    The juice in my sample is faint green.

    Yep. I wonder what the color is now that Lutens has moved Chergui to their Exclusive collection.

    I have had a bell jar of Chergui for about two years. Although it was brownish in color when purchased, it recently has turned green. It does smell the same however.

    My Vetiver Oriental is darker then the light green in the picture above... it is more of a greenish/brown then a pale green.

    My bottle of VO is a darker green than that pictured.

    Mine has what I'd call a "light olive green" liquid.

    Well haha. That's great that you all have differing colors! But do they smell the same across these color differences? Only one person noted this.

    Yeah, mine's greener, too. And I don't have wide enough experience to compare it to other batches or vintages, but mine smells just like what I remember from sampling at Aedes.
