Plain white
Do Son EdP is best observed from a distance. The trail it leaves in the air is magnificent. Consistently present, close to being a tuberose-'soliflor' and yet it is feather-light and inobtrusive.

When studied from up close, Do Son appears as a plain white floral blend. No frills, no drama. Similar to the EdT, the scent develops from jasmin-tuberose to orange blossom-tuberose. While the EdP feels a bit smoother than the EdT, it is also kind of straightforward. The EdT has a salty sea breeze note, which provides personality and makes it more fun to wear if you ask me.

Of warm nights, white blossoms & longing for the distance
When a fragrance carries you far away, it is - especially in the current times - a great gift.

Nothing makes memories come alive as quickly as a scent that you associate with places or experiences. It is, so to speak, the sensual bridge between the images pasted into the mental photo album and the present, the here and now.

When I close my eyes and let Do Son take effect on me, I superficially perceive the intense scent of white flowers.
Slightly sweet and metallic, this smell has an effect on me. Penetrating and clear. There is little else to sniff, perhaps a very slight hint of wood and something that reminds me of coconut.

But aside from the fact that I find this scent very pleasant overall, it transports me to Asia at the speed of light. More specifically, to Southeast Asia.

The day is drawing to a close, the heat slowly subsiding. Dawn comes very quickly, in this part of the world. And for that very reason, it is one of the most precious moments of the day.
The light becomes soft and diffuse. Everything seems to breathe a sigh of relief. It is the time of leisure.

When you are no longer busy escaping the heat or arriving at a particular destination, you suddenly become much more aware of your surroundings.

And suddenly - there it is: the incredibly intense scent of the white flowers growing in the garden of the small guesthouse by the river. They entwine themselves up the wall, decorative and yet rather inconspicuous for much of the day. But now - at dusk - they show what they are made of.

I'm sitting barefoot on the porch, in a comfy rattan chair, my hair still a little damp from the shower I've longed for after a long day of travel. The brass fan on the ceiling whirs softly, moving the air just enough to gently cool without having to wrap a scarf around my shoulders.And it blends the scents around me.

The old wood of the porch, decorated with beautiful carvings.
The coconut oil that I applied thinly to sun-stressed skin after a shower.
And of course the intense scent of white flowers.

Nothing else. And it's enough.
It's enough to close your eyes, put the open travel journal aside once more, and just arrive fully in this moment.

Thank you, Do Son - for these wonderful memory moments!

It is still summer in the coastal resort of Do Son, and toilet paper is also available!
Good evening, smelly people!
Today I come to a brand that I really like and which has also produced one of my favourite fragrances, Diptyque. Those who know me will now say: "Of course you like Diptyque, after all they are the source of the fig scent Philosykos and you are a fig freak! And that's true. As long as a fig does not smell stuffy (as it unfortunately does in many scents), then I like figs very much, so that you could call me a little fig freak... in this sense I am really a freak... comic freak, Star Wars freak, cat freak, anger-the-parfuma freak and and and and :DD

Anyway, today I come to a fragrance I had already tried the EDT of, namely Do Son. However, that was so long ago that I hardly know how Do Son had scented at all. Sure, I could read my own comment again,... but that's so much text!!! This endlessly babbling DonJuanDeCat writes for hours without getting to the point! Who does all his lyrics to himself? Pooh!... no, I prefer to write, publish afterwards and forget everything again (but you have to read it), hö hö :D

By the way, the fragrance was named after a Thai coastal area in Haiphong, where the father of Yves Coueslant (one of the founders of Diptyque) built a pagoda and where the family spent some nice summers. In memory of those times, this fragrance is named after this place, Do Son, which is also one of the most famous fragrances of Diptyque. As I said, I had already introduced the EDT version here before, now I'm trying the EDP version.

Soon the fragrance will be softer and cleaner. I still smell the flowery sweetness, but now more of a mix of jasmine and tuberose, plus there is still neroli or orange blossom, although here the bitter effect has now faded. In addition there are, as mentioned, clean notes, which even appear creamy and slightly powdery, as if iris was also included.
Towards the base it remains as just described, only the fragrance is a bit more floral, but also somehow smoother. In the very late base, the scent appears slightly diluted, but that's okay, because even then it doesn't smell bad. All in all a nice scent, but for me it doesn't have any particular strengths
The silage and the durability:*
The Sillage is rather mediocre. You don't necessarily have to get very close to smell the scent on you, but at long distances you can't perceive the scent either. The shelf life is good, as the scent lasts a bit longer than eight hours.



*sigh*
I would also like to be somewhere on a coast like Thailand, where I could go swimming, slurp out coconuts, watch perfumes in bikinis (it was clear that this would come from ME, so turn a blind eye... :D) and taste many delicacies of Thai cuisine. I would generally highly recommend a trip to Thailand and no, not because of what Thailand trips are clichédly known for, tssss... you just have dirty thoughts, don't you?
Anyway, think about it as soon as the virus crisis is hopefully over sometime!
By the way: To speed up the crisis, you not only have to keep your distance from others, but also get ONLY ONE pack of toilet paper per week, for example, so that there is enough for ALL IN GERMANY, really... the thing about toilet paper is really ridiculous. But also the fact that you can't find any bread or toast is more than ridiculous, these things will normally NOT go out in the near future, if everybody buys normally as usual instead of buying 15 packs of toast, where 12 packs spoil... so stupid!!!

Anyway, the smell is good and yes, test it out! I've come to the end of it again and now I wish you a nice evening, until next time and try to stay healthy AND sensible! :)

Tuberose - clear, distinct, flowery
Fortunately tested this morning with only 1 sprayer - this will probably last until the next dawn.

I like tuberose per se. But I don't find them particularly exciting now, because they are always too dominant for me. Although - one cannot speak of dominant, perhaps, with a monothematic.

If you absolutely love tuberose - go ahead. Too easy for me.

The mighty tuberose
From the bottle comes the mighty tuberose. She escapes on her wrist, she floats in space, unfolding her fleshy leaves. And it gradually becomes gently pulsating warm.
Nothing else, really. The art of Do Son is that this comprehensive tuberose experience does not impress as headache tuberose. Warm, a little opulent, but not too diva. Sensual and velvety, it surrounds the wearer.

Tuberose is simply a wonderfully seductive smell, the crowning glory is its subtle spiciness and this breath of camphor that sometimes appears more or less. In my opinion, not many women, or men, can wear this without looking like they are in a bright pink satin evening dress by day.
It doesn't suit me, AugustA, but I like to smell it from time to time.
