Reviews of Eau de Lierre

I know one thing, DIPTYQUE KNOWS THEIR GREENS. And Eau de Lierre is no exception. Ivy plays a key role in this one. Unisex and leafy green (what else is new?), this one is slightly sweeter than most Diptyque fragrances (not a bad thing). A touch of musk and spice give this a good look for the warmer weather without being cloying. 8/10

Genre: Green

Green fragrances are not the most popular, and not every perfume house offers one. Diptyque used to have two: Eau de Lierre and Virgilio. Virgilio, now discontinued, was the good one.

Eau de Lierre smells like a couple of classic green top notes, perhaps galbanum and tomato leaf, set at an excruciating volume and extended to tedious endurance by harsh synthetic floral underpinnings. It might make a good candle, but as personal fragrance its lack of balance and substance leave it feeling crude and grating.

Eau De Lierre opens with bitter green galore. Crushed leaves and other non-sweet aromatic notes such as leafy geranium. Fresh and quite realistic, inoffensive but very likable. Unfortunately it quickly turns into a generic clean modern musky thing with woody undertones to then, even more quickly, turn into nothing at all. Despite the relatively short lasting power, the fragrance is overall not bad but I can't help it from finding it a bit unnecessary…especially when compared to other incredibly solid offerings from the same house.

I believe if they would have marketed it as part of their *Eaus*, it would have played in the fragrance's favor.

I’m normally not a fan of musks, but they play so well in this absolutely gorgeous green fragrance. I feel so fresh wearing it. The ivy leaves are beautifully executed, per Diptyque’s signature style. Love.

Stoic Green

Classy garden leaf. Certainly linear but I don't care, I love it. If you crave green scents without too much sweetness this is one to try.

Diptyque EAU DE LIERRE is a crunchy floral green with true unisex appeal. Among the dominant notes appear to be both hyacinth and lily of the valley. There's a significant amount of brownish grassiness here—as in the grass is becoming dry without quite being dead yet. EAU DE LIERRE is definitely greenish, but there's not much overlap here with übergreens such as MA GRIFFE or FUTUR. The overall effect is clean but in a back-to-nature not a fresh-from-the-shower way. I like it.

Although some floral greens (read Gucci ENVY) grate on my nerves as their all-too-synthetic renditions of lily of the valley expand to the point of near suffocation, here the notes all seem very natural and do not grow like the blob over time. EAU DE LIERRE is a gentler, calmer floral green. Perfect for warm weather!
