I challenge you to Eau Duelle.
Diptyque Eau Duelle opens as a sheer vanilla with a hint of juniper gin and cool cardamom. My best description of Duelle’s heart is a “clean vanilla”. It isn’t heavy or overly sweet which are traits that many people associate with vanilla. Eau Duelle’s vanilla is sheer and just got out of the shower. It becomes a spicy chai and smoky black tea over a sweeter vanilla amber.
I don’t say this very often but Eau Duelle is a sheer vanilla, a vanilla that works in the summer. And it works the rest of the year too.
Notes listed include cardamom, Asian cyprus, elemi, juniper, saffron, calamus, black tea, African olibanum, amber, vanilla, and white musk. Launched 2010. PERFUMER – Fabrice Pellegrin
Give Eau Duelle a try if you are looking for a sheer vanilla perfume or if you like perfumes like Atelier Vanille Insensee, B&BW Warm Vanilla Sugar, Bvlgari Omnia, Malle Van Dries Noten and/or Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanillle. Eau Duelle is completely unisex and works in all of the climates.
This scent has average projection and actually wears on me for a long time. I can smell it on myself all day (at least 12 hours of wear).
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Vanilla gin and tonic. You know, it’s rather simple but I love wearing it. I’m really surprised that I haven’t added a bottle to my collection yet.
