    Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental

    I am an avid comic-book reader, excuse me graphic novel reader. One of the more fun books to read was a series called Marvel Team-Up, each issue Spider-Man would team-up with another superhero. Sometimes they were cool and sometimes they felt forced. The one constant to everything was Spider-Man. Vetiver sometimes seems like Spider-Man in that many perfumers look to team-up vetiver with new notes to see what will be found. So it is with the 2002 Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental created by Christopher Sheldrake. If I'm looking for a perfumer who knows the art of the team-up M. Sheldrake would be the nose I'd most likely think of first. His ability to find two different versions of chocolate and patchouli in Serge Lutens Borneo 1834 and Chanel's Coromandel is testament to this ability. In Vetiver Oriental the team-up is to put vetiver on top of a traditional oriental base focused on amber and see what this produces. From the top the vetiver comes out, this is the vetiver that feels sweeter and less woody. I characterize this as more grassy and green than rooty and deeper. This is the opposite tack taken from Borneo 1834 where it was the rooty quality of patchouli that was emphasized. The heart of this is centered around iris and this is a perfect choice to hold the middle ground in this team-up. The iris here is both sweet and slightly astringent and actually serves more as a palate cleanser than a real heart of this scent. The heart is the base which is a mix of chocolate and amber. It is the combination of these two notes that create the Oriental half of things. This is a sweet amber combined with a less-dominant cocoa powder accord to keep the sweet of the amber in focus. The best part of the development of Vetiver Oriental is when you get the contrast of the bittersweet green of vetiver, the floral sweet of iris and the deep rich sweetness of amber all together it is truly a beautiful team-up. It reminds me of when Spider-Man and The Hulk teamed up and what sounded forced turned out to be surprising and fun. Christopher Sheldrake has made a scent that is at turns surprising and fun, another successful team-up.

    Today's SOTD is my first test of Parfumerie Generale L'Eau Rare Matale.



    I do love a good, filthy citrus.

    On me, this is basically orange with a LOT of pepper, some smoke, and leather. Officially, it's supposed to be black tea, which I can kind of picture, but it's more orange than tea.

    On sniffing, my first thought is that this was really familiar....

    It's quite similar to Wilkes San Francisco, but the Wilkes has more pepper and some ozone. It also shares some DNA with Ananas Fizz, but Ananas lets the fruit shine brighter than this does. It's also the same idea behind Barneys NY Route de The, but Route is more refreshing than this. And it's impossible to not compare any dirty citrus to Terre D'Hermes - but TDH is downright filthy and has the dusty vetiver going on, keeping the grapefruit from ever really getting bright, while the orange in this is allowed to poke through a bit more without the vetiver going on.

    It's nice and very me, but I can't see needing this with it being similar to so many I have...

    Sorry about the shitty birthday, Nsamadi. At least you smell good!

    Anyway, my SOTE is a two arm test:

    Montale Attar vs. Black Aoud.

    VS.

    They smelled VERY similar in the top notes (rose + crazy medicinal oud), so wanted to try them together to catch the similarities.

    I'd always chalked up Black Aoud to a pretty simple mix of oud and rose, but, reading more and sniffing deeper. there's a lot more. I've gotten woods and incense and effervescence and given oud the credit for all of them, but there's actually patchouli and citrus and lots of other stuff coming and going and keeping things interesting.

    This is my first time trying Attar, which supposedly actually is the simple rose + oud mix I thought Black Oud was (confused yet?), but with a sandalwood base.

    Able to compare them, it seems like a lot of Black Aoud's strength and longevity are actually coming from the patchouli, because Attar is fading fast. That being said, Attar is much more wearable than BA, which I could really only wear out to a club. The sandalwood, while never really center-stage, does a lot to soften the craziness. It comes off as a bit more feminine, and almost work-wearable. The band-aid smell is still there, but just providing texture, as opposed to shrieking at the top of its lungs like it does in BA.

    I'm a bit torn as to which I prefer. Attar is eminently more wearable, but the rough edges are what makes Black Aoud so fun. That being said, it would take me 10 lifetimes to use up a 100 ml bottle of either of these, so maybe I should just be content without either one... Oh well, these are strong enough that a drop or two lasts all day, so my tiny samples should last me a while.
