Reviews of Do Son

Do Son is a tuberose 'soliflore' for those who don't care for big white floral soliflores. This fragrance slightly shifts niche, aimed at those who want more green and air in a BWF.
It opens mostly floral and develops a greener tone as it progresses. By the time the heartnote emerges, it is a cool green floral, smooth and naturalistic, with Lily of the Valley notes. The tone in Do Son is primarily green, creating an outdoor floral feel. It becomes somewhat lily-like, the fragrance you encounter in the florist's shop near the oriental lily cooler.
Carnal Flower and Fracas have a warmer, buttery quality to them. Do Son stays cool and light. It is a BWF I can handle without feeling I'm in a bridal boutique. Even so, it is not exactly my style, preferring roses and darker whites, so I wouldn't wear it often. Nevertheless, wear it I can, which is an accomplishment.

Tuberose is a little overpowering , theni get a smell of cardboard

Aa a fan of Dipitque I was really interested to try this. but what a huge disappointed. In my mind a very heavy handed tuberose opening which is a rather acid sweetness. This faded within 15 minutes leaving a vaguely unpleasant cardboard odour. i was very surprised . i actually had to wash this off. Maybe it is just my skin type. Diptyque scents are always interesting and do take time to fall in love with ,but for me this one has ended in a very premature divorce.

Pros: starts of like a while flower bouquet heavery tuberose
Cons: develops a carboard like odour after 15 minutes"

An easy to wear tuberose, definitely a compliment gainer

I totally agree with DiamondFlame review, a fresh and green take on Tuberose. This is really far from being a soliflore, like Fracas. I find it very easy to wear and easy to get, sometimes you just want your high end perfume to just smell good and sexy. Definitely sexy and huge huge compliment gainer. The composition is so well blended, that unfortunately, it stays linear and almost twodimensional as oh_hedgehog said, but then again, as i said, sometimes you just want to fell comfortable with your scent. And I'm sorry to say that, but i would find extremely attractive a guy who dare to wear this powerful scent, really really attractive. )

Pros: Good sillage and projection
Cons: Too linear"

very floral

tuberose and white flowers. maybe lily of the garden? just like bond's love N.Y. good for women but not suitable for men.

Pros: lasts awhile
Cons: too feminine

Just OK. White flowers + green something. Feminine but not sweet. I wouldn't wear it.

Do Son isn't as refined as Frederic Malle's Carnal Flower, smelling two-dimensional and unnaturally sweet by contrast. But it is a serviceable tuberose and far more wearable than, say, Dior Poison.
