    Default who has Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental?

    After 4 hours of searching, i pulled a trigger on Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental.
    I placed an order on Fragrancenet for $100 which is a very good deal. I'm skeptical that it may be fake. To good to be true lol.
    If anyone has this fragrance, then can you post a close up shot of the label and the bottle so i can compare when i receive it?

    Thanks

    You bought from FragranceNet, so it's real.

    No sarcasm. Fragrancenet doesn't sell fakes.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.
    Big list of niche splits.

    Many people ask the same question, but rest assured you're fine. Enjoy it when it arrives.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thanks for reassurance. But if anyone does have one, then can i still have pics of closeups? Lol

    I read few people receiving fakes. The website does say 100% guaranteed but there are "luxury shopping" websites that say the same thing but still sell fakes. Its always a good practice to check on your own unless you buy from the original seller.
    I just want to check for the peace of mind. Then, ill pull a trigger on Byredo too. haha

    You're good. Nobody would even go to the trouble of faking a slow seller. Counterfeiting requires volume >

    Very true. Actually one of the guys who said he got the fake is the Creed one.
    Im curious how they sell for like half the price of the brand that rarely go on sale.

    I tried the original a few times about 10 years ago and was almost tempted to buy it but didn't, and then it disappeared for awhile.

    I tried the new re-issue a couple of times just recently when it turned up in the 100ml bottle and it seems quite different . . . considerably 'lighter', much less personality.
