It depends, honestly. There are so many Lutens options, some might work, but IN GENERAL, I find Lutens too heavy/syrupy to wear any time.
Given how much some people LOVE Lutens, I went through a period of trying out as many as I could... I think I got up to 10-15 of them... and NONE of them really just HIT with me.
Miel de bois was the only one I really found interesting, and it was almost too foul to wear much, too. Chergui, Fumerie turque, Arabie, Santal Blanc, Cedre, etc. were just TOO much... too heavy... too much like pouring syrup on my skin.
NOW, that being said, I think they are wonderful concoctions for those who like that kind of heavy scent. That just isn't me, sadly.
