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.

The matter with number 34
If scents cause enthusiasm, one should also tell about it and share the enthusiasm with others.
If you are not at all interested in the comments on Dufthaus etc., you are welcome to skip to the fifth paragraph!

Actually, I wanted to say a few sentences about a completely different fragrance and actually it's already finished, but first of all it's always different and secondly, it's not what you think anyway.
Now a very extensive assortment of selected trial samples came to me in a very extensive bag, there was also some of Diptyque in it.
I admit that the name had been known to me for quite a long time and that I have encountered one or the other nice fragrance from this house from time to time in my circle of acquaintances, but I have never possessed a diptyque fragrance myself
The Diptyque House, based on the Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris, was founded in 1961 and initially sold fabrics, furniture and English fragrances. In 1963, specially designed scented candles were added to the range. From 1968 onwards, the company's own fragrance creations were also offered, which proved to be quite successful. In the course of the years, room fragrances and soaps completed the assortment.

Now I have been a little busy with the series that bears the number of the parent company in Paris (34 Boulevard Saint-Germain EdT and EdP, both of which I like very much, the EdP even a bit more) and in addition to that I have now added the wonderful L'Eau du Trente-Quatre, so once again the 34th
Designed by Olivier Pescheux, who has been and still is quite busy working for various fragrance houses. And I notice that I also like some of the fragrances from his hand or that I even had/have had some in my possession.
Amongst others he created the very well known and polarizing One Million (yes, exactly that!) as well as various flankers, the fragrances sold at H&M, such as the wonderful Makassar Patchouli or for Yves Rocher some fragrances, he also created fragrances for Azzaro, Jil Sander and Davidoff.
But some things fly a little under the radar, as I think and deserve a closer look.
Therefore I am a little bit surprised that nothing else has been written about this beautiful fragrance except some statements.
So let's change that.

L'Eau du Trente-Quatre is an exceptional fragrance that skilfully combines very tart citrusy aspects, herbaceous influences, woody notes and spices to create a very coherent and harmonious whole.
Right at the start, bitter oranges and grapefruit, which are spiced with nutmeg right from the start, make themselves felt. Herbaceous-green impressions are added, a little lavender accompanies, verbena gives a certain light severity. A touch of floral is added after a while, tuberose seems to have been used here only in very small doses, it is not very noticeable. The rose geranium comes out a little more, but does not push itself too much into the foreground.
The fragrance remains spicy and green. When the citrus notes have receded somewhat, a warm woody note develops, beautifully balanced. Patchouli and a hint of incense round off the fragrance and give it a certain depth.
L'Eau du Trente-Quatre seems to me warm, friendly, attractive and quite complex, with a very nice flow. The fragrance is not loud, it rather strikes calmer tones, but this fits perfectly here.
A certain classic touch cannot be denied, but I am far from calling the fragrance old-fashioned. It most certainly is not This fragrance belongs to the class of timeless fragrances, which work just as well today as they will in 10 years.
And I cannot deny a distant kinship with Elizabeth Taylor's Passion for Men. I don't want to claim that they are fragrance twins, but I can establish a certain basic relationship. Although the Diptyque is more subtle and complex. But both have this warm woody spice in common and the nutmeg note runs through the whole fragrance.

I find the durability quite decent, about 6-7 hours are in it, it becomes quite fast skin-close, which makes it very suitable as an office fragrance.
Fields of application are actually unlimited, whether as a leisure fragrance, as an office fragrance, whether in a suit or as a nature boy. With L'Eau du Trente-Quatre one cuts a good figure in any case.
I myself perceive the fragrance as more masculine, but that should not be a limitation of recommendation. If the overall package is right, then the fragrance will also fit, no matter which gender is accessing here.
And the number 34 seems to be a very good number in any case.

For me, L'Eau du Trente-Quatre is a very wonderful fragrance, which I can definitely give a green colouring, but here and there some yellowish and orange speckles flash up and give the fragrance light and warmth. And he has the potential to be a potential buyer with me. Even if I keep my recently strictly self-imposed acceptance stop for now.
But sometime is also Christmas, birthday or any other nice occasion.

I thank Ergoproxy very much for this really beautiful fragrance experience.

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.
