Serge Lutens Vétiver Oriental

How could I describe this bizarre perfume except to say it reminds me of Fumerie Turque without heat? I'm getting sweet and deep but cool with a hint of rubber. I don't get a lot of vetiver from it but that makes it easier for me to wear. Overall, I'd say Vetiver Oriental smells like it would suit a man, but a woman who likes thoroughly urban scents, who doesn't care for anything too flowery could definitely pull it off. If vetiver ever became my favorite note, I think this would be my pick. It's earthy and green but sweet enough to appeal to Gourmand lovers. Now I'm in the mood for kusamochi--that's what it reminds me of--one eaten at a tire shop.
