Diptyque Do Son EDT Perfume Review

Diptyque Do Son

Diptyque Do Son is inspired by one of the founder’s childhood memories of Vietnam. Essentially, Do Son is a tuberose perfume. It’s a sheer, green and “fresh” tuberose.

Do Son opens as a lush tuberose with some tartness, like an unripe peach. This tuberose isn’t as sweet as many other tuberose scents. It has greenness – a crisp, green orange blossom. The best way to describe this scent is as a “green tuberose”. Do Son displays the bitterness and sweetness of florals; it’s a perfect balance. Do Son dries down to a powdery, cool iris with a clean white musk. The overall feel is a “clean” white floral blooming in balmy weather.

Do Son isn’t the sort of fragrance that I would wear. When I’m in the mood for tuberose, I wear a beast like Malle Carnal Flower. However, I think Do Son is nice for a tuberose soliflore. I have smelled it on strangers in passing and I thought it was pretty. I think this one does well on cool humid days, like the days we have here in the spring. I like the trail it leaves from others more than actually wearing it on myself.

Notes listed include tuberose, orange tree leaves, rose berries and musk. Launched 2005. PERFUMER – Francis Pellegrin

Give Do Son a try if you want a “green” white floral. Or if you like perfumes like Gucci Flora Gracious Tuberose, Estee Lauder Tuberose Gardenia, By Kilian Beyond Love, Acqua di Parma Gelsomino Nobile, and/or Arquiste Flor Y Canto. I view Do Son as more feminine.

Projection is above average, I love it’s sillage. Longevity is average.

The 1.7 oz EDT retails for $90 at Beautyhabit. Samples are available for purchase.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONGreen tuberose. It’s a bitter/sweet tuberose that is sheerer than most. Not something I see myself wearing but it’s good.

  1. i didn’t try this one… and being the fickle little libra i am, i’m on to other scents. but the green part sounds delish- although, like you, i like a full on tuberose beast. i’m grateful my mom sometimes wears Fracas, so if i’m needing tuberose i can go to the tap. 😉

    1. I’m not a Libra, so what’s my excuse?

      I love Fracas but rarely wear it. The rollerball that Sephora sells is good for me. Someone in our building wears Fracas. The elevators smell like it for weeks. I’m not complaining!

  2. ummmm… you’re far too fabulous to be contained by one mere scent? you have commitment issues? your venus is in scorpio and so your visions of beauty are always riddled with pangs of melancholy? you write a BLOG and therefore cannot be bound to reviewing one perfume over and over and over? the dog ate your other perfumes? i dunno. just use being a libra as an excuse- you’d be surprised at how forgiving people can be when you explain to them you were distracted by the shiny stuff inthe street and that’s why you’re late. (of course, this is probably only really true is you ARE a libra.) oh look! something shiny……
