Absolutely gorgeous scent!
I just love, love, love this scent. I have the parfum extrait and also the original EDP which is just breathtaking. I bagged the limited edition EDP bottle on ebay which came with a wooden cork and the atomiser. Wow! the cork alone perfumed my wardrobe for weeks on end. Another masterpiece from the 'professor of perfumery'.

Is quite interesting that the differences between the original Dighilev composition and the relaunched parfum strenght are, somehow, the same differences between Mitsouko and what is known to have inspired Mitsouko, the legendary Coty Chypre. The Original Diaghilev is more muscular, dry, almost masculine, putting much more emphasis on the moss and on driest citrus and flower aromas. The Parfum, however, is like a classic Mitsouko with a nod to current chypres (it comes to my mind, besides the Amouage one listed on the similarities, Gucci Rush too). It fills the driest sections of the first version with soft peachy tones and sensual flowers that blooms on different moments on skin. The spices also seem to be more intense and dirty, but the scent itself isn't dirty. It's complex, abstract, very sensual but in a refined way. It's not a kind of fragrance that is on trend anymore, but i guess that there is always space for some high quality chypre (too bad that it's so expensive!).

Simply A Breathtaking Masterpiece...
*This is a review of the Parfum version of Diaghilev.

Diaghilev opens with an amazing orange-laced luscious rose floral accord with a very slight dirty cumin-like undertone. As the fragrance enters the early heart phase the very full rose remains, now joined by relatively indolic jasmine and slightly powdery iris supporting florals with a minuscule measure of early patchouli driven sweetness before hints of leather and sharp vetiver quash it. The vetiver grows in intensity throughout the dry-down until by the end of the heart phase it is a solid co-star to the rose. During the late dry-down the rose finally dissipates, leaving the sharp vetiver and supporting leather to take control, with a surprising quantity of slightly powdery oakmoss underpinning the base accord. Projection is outstanding, as is longevity at nearly 15 hours on skin.

Let's get this out of the way straight off, Diaghilev is an amazing composition that conjures up visions of deep animalic's like Onda Extrait by Vero Profumo early, then leather-laced vetiver from the base of Puredistance M (another great Roja Dove composition), while infusing the composition with a similar captivating rose to the one used in Lalfeorosa by O'driu. Successfully channeling aspects of those three greats, Diaghilev is as close to a "sure thing" for lovers of those masterpieces as you will find. The bottom line is the approximately $1000 per 100ml Diaghilev in its parfum concentration is a masterpiece through and through, earning a corresponding 4.5+ stars out of 5 and an extremely strong recommendation. The near $10 per ml cost is quite dear, but compositions of this quality are extremely rare, meriting one to at least try to get their nose on a sample to witness near-perfection in a true modern day chypre composition that keeps close ties to the classics.
