An educational guide for small tuberoses
The education of a tuberose is not easy because of its character, and so it is not surprising that not a few perfumers fail despite the best will in the world. In order to avoid serious mistakes, Diptyque has created an educational guidebook, which should be of great help to many colleagues in the education of their tuberoses on the basis of a practical example.
Early socialization is essential, especially for tuberoses, which tend to become somewhat dominant without a leading hand. It is therefore important to embed them in a versatile environment that should change somewhat over time in line with the evolving needs of tuberose. In early years it is ideal to seek contact with Hesperidia, preferably rather bitter-sour representatives. However, in order not to design the environment too one-sidedly, because this also holds dangers, tuberose should be introduced in moderation to herbs and spices, for this gentle herb representatives have prevailed. Soon tuberose will enter a new phase of life, which brings with it a certain change of interest. Here tuberose should be given the opportunity to get to know similar flowers, preferably rather reserved characters, of the opposite sex. These should be chosen carefully, as they have the role to guide the tuberose through this turbulent time as calmly as possible. With entry into the third and last phase of life, very versatile, profound acquaintances should be provided, who can tell tuberose a lot, so that it is basically sufficiently busy with listening and learning. Smoky-earthy characters are a good choice here, as are woody lads.
With such an education you have even the least problems, your tuberose will undergo an extraordinary development and make many friends on its way and furthermore you will be envied by many for your wonderfully successful, civilized-reserved tuberose. The correct upbringing of tuberoses is not witchcraft, Diptyque shows it off with L'Eau du Trente-Quatre.
A scent that made me fidget for a while before it opened up to me. A fragrance of extraordinary complexity and extraordinary composition, which on the one hand smells so new, but on the other hand fits so perfectly, as if it would exist forever. Tuberose is a courageous fragrance for men, but its perfect embedding will never catch your eye. Tuberose is an elegant and special fragrance for women who find smooth-edged floral scents too characterless. Basically a test recommendation to all the perfumers out there who are already enthusiastic about the Diptyque brand or who want to do so without any current knowledge. And for everyone else, too.

I can never get enough of this one. Discovered it from a sample, and I can't live without it. It smells first like soap, a really nice soapy smell. I have a lot of trouble deciding what else I smell. That's why I'm here though.

Excellent fragrance
It smells like freshly cut cedar wood but with a soapy freshness added to it. It's only average in sillage and longevity but to me, that's great, because it makes it so versatile.

L'Eau du Trente-Quatre: a non-flanker, water for summer flanker
Diptyque’s newest release, L’Eau du Trente-Quatre, is meant to be the warm weather companion to the line's signature scent 34 Boulevard Saint Germain. At first sniff, it's hard to pin down what the two have in common. You might not even smell L’Eau du Trente-Quatre as being a flanker. Maybe it was never intended to be a flanker? This is the description from the Diptyque website:
“A lively interpretation of the original 34 Boulevard Saint Germain, the new fragrance captures the essence of the original boutique, during the time when the weather changes and the greenest notes take over from the warmer and more sensual notes of 34 Boulevard Saint Germain.”

It’s as though composer Olivier Pescheux took all the unused notes from 34 BSG found laying around the lab and created L’Eau du Trente-Quatre. The differences are obvious right from the start. L’Eau du Trente-Quatre has an element common to many perfumes but one I haven't experienced in any Diptyque fragrance: a strong, overt citrus opening. Of course, being Dyptique, it isn’t your run of the mill, obligatory lemon. It’s a wonderful accord of lemon and grapefruit that’s burnished with just a hint of bitter orange. Most fragrances that open with lemon tend to smell like, for better or worse, a lemon. However, L’Eau du Trente-Quatre's opening is the perfume idealization of citrus. It’s the difference between a black and white photograph of a lemon and an atmospheric, still life painting of citrus fruit.

From there L’Eau du Trente-Quatre and 34BSG fragrances diverge further from each other by developing in their own distinctive and interesting ways. 34 BSG has an ever changing kaleidoscopic effect. Notes blossom and change in a seemingly random way. It’s a wonderfully unpredictable experience. But 34 BSG is also a warm, cashmere sweater of a fragrance, thus the need for a “L’Eau” version.

L’Eau du Trente-Quatre has a very open structure and develops in a way similar to the intent of Lavin’s Arpege, which unfolds in the steps of a musical arpeggio. Similarly, L’Eau du Trente-Quatre's major notes and accords each have their time in the spotlight starting with the citrus top, descending to a nice rose-like floral accord of geranium and tuberose, warming with cinnamon leaf and a slightly sweet patchouli, then transitioning into the base which is an especially nice, natural, aromatic cedar. Through the entire development the grapefruit note sings a single descant pitch above the descending arpeggio of notes creating a series of dissonances and cadences until we land on the tonic triad of grapefruit, sweet, light patchouli and aromatic cedar.

L’Eau du Trente-Quatre may not be the artistic equal to 34BSG but it is a stronger, longer lasting L'eau when compared with most design house flankers that have been watered as "fraiche" for summer wear.

It is almost as if 34 Blvd St Germ has been turned inside out and washed. Breezy, yet dense and full bodied. Universal appeal.
