Diptyque Oyedo Perfume Review

Diptyque Oyedo

After a hiatus due to moving and traveling, I have decided to bombard this perfume blog with “weird eau de colognes” this week. It’s hot, humid and gross. I want to smell fresh and clean but with something that is a little more interesting than the usual. Like Mugler Hot Cologne, Diptyque Oyédo is a citrus with a twist.

Oyedo opens as a juicy, fruity orange mingling with a juicy lemon. There’s definitely something cool and mentholated in this that reminds me of a cough… Continue reading


Diptyque L’Ombre Dans L’Eau Perfume Review

Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau

Rose Week 2018 – The Blackcurrant Rose

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

When Diptyque launched Eau Rose in 2012, their copy emphasized how they were finally paying tribute to the beauty of a rose. This was odd for a few reasons, but the biggest one being that the brand launched something very similar in 1983 – L’Ombre dans L’Eau.

L’Ombre… Continue reading | 4 Comments


Diptyque Geranium Odorata EDT Perfume Review

Diptyque Geranium Odorata

I don’t even care for geranium as a note.So, when I saw the new Diptyque, Geranium Odorata, I didn’t go out of my way to sample it. To make a long story short, I ended up sampling it on a warm day on an impromptu sniffing spree. I was surprised by how much I was drawn to this fragrance. Maybe it was the heat, but I rather liked this fresh, cool tea-like scent.

Geranium Odorata opens with a bergamot and mint which reminds me of tea… Continue reading | 7 Comments


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… Continue reading | 5 Comments


Diptyque L’Eau de L’Eau Cologne Fragrance Review

Diptyque L'eau de l'eau

How l’eau can you go? Diptyque wants you to get L’Eau de L’Eau.

L’Eau de L’Eau is an eau de cologne. It opens with a sparkling combo of licorice, freshly grated ginger and lemon. L’eau de L’Eau becomes spicier with dry cloves added to the mix. This mingles with old-fashioned traditionally “masculine” notes of lavender and tonka. The dry-down is surprisingly “warm” for an eau de cologne. It’s powdery and woodsy with sharp citrus blossoms.

When I think of “cologne”, I think of something… Continue reading | 1 Comment
