A Epic Spicy Citrus Potion
I love this fragrance! I can't believe I got multiple samples of it on my last visit to the Diptyque counter several months ago and have never tried it until today. I was busy trying to convince myself that somewhere within Diptyque's Volutes, L'eau Tarocco and L'eau de Lente, lay my new Summer signature scent. I love the low-moderate sillage as well as the transparent quality of Diptyque creations and I also love the dichotomy of surprisingly good longevity with this line, at least on my skin. L'eau de L'eau starts off very citrusy and fresh on the top notes with a sunny lemon note with a pinch of dry cinnamon powder. I don't really smell any grapefruit or petitgrain, but perhaps I am blocking these out since they are not my favorite notes. For the first five minutes my reaction was "Meh, that is just o.k." and then suddenly it was as if someone wearing a beautiful orange blossom, lavender and geranium scent walked in, lit a clove cigarette and ordered a chilled candied ginger martini with mandarin zest peel curled over the side. Then I realized it was, in fact, L'eau de L'eau. This scent definitely changes and expands over time. The top was fresh, almost professional, brisk and urban. The middle is clove-a-licious, dark and spicy almost Goth and the base is a mello, soft and calming Tonka and Benzoin. I don't detect the patchouli here, but that is a good thing, IMO. It all mélanges together culminating in a Your-skin-but-spicy-scent. This is masterfully blended and would make an ideal signature scent for a man or woman. I would wear this primarily for daytime- it's very close to the skin after the first hour, but seems to be lasting a good 6 hours. I'm almost sorry I got into this sample because now definitely need a full bottle ASAP!
