I chose a very odd minimalist counterpart to your choice today, kind of a neat (anti)symmetry, too - from CdG to CREEDŪ. Seriously - this time it was Original Vetiver, with laundry musks and just a hint of vetiver. Your description of Odeur 53 reminded me of that. I really think OV - so reminiscent to me of Guerlain's Vetiver Pour Elle - doesn't get enough credit. But then, it doesn't cater to the pick-up artist, or the flashy guy trying to impress the ladies. If anything, it approaches others in the most congenial, deferential and professional way.
I'll quote Kevin Guyer. I don't remember the stylistic context, but it was spot-on.
