Eau Mage fragrance notes

Reviews of Eau Mage

One thing is for certain, this fragrance deviates from the norm.....it doesn't share the same DNA of Diptyque fragrances. It is a synthetic, clean-musky, woody, and jammy/metallic rose. Two fragrances immediately come to mind smelling Eau Mage: Le Labo Another 13 and Heeley's Agarwoud. Francine Pellegrin perfected the concept of light vs. dark with this fragrance. A huge dose of ambroxan accompanied by rose, and tangerine produce a bright, fresh, and energetic vibe while the patchouli, musk, and woody notes provide a dark and mysterious effect. Some words that I would use to describe E.M. would be seductive, unconventional, euphoric, and versatile. I applied one spray to the back of my hand and caught wafts of it for hours. This is full bottle worthy in my opinion (IF) you can find this elusive gem. It's a shame that this was discontinued.

Not bad but not great. This reminded me of Cartier's Declaration, due to the prominent citrus and cumin notes. However, it is much quieter and in the relatively rapidly-reached drydown becomes a flat, dusty, woody skin scent.

Diptyques does Comme Des Garcons...well, sort of.

Often described as "the least Diptyque of all the Diptyques", "The best Diptyque ever" or "the worst Diptyque ever"...one thing is for sure, L'Eau Mage is a polarizing composition or, as a friend use to say, an "iconic fragrance".

Eau Mage is built around a consitent dose of clean, woody and sort of animalic ambroxan juxtaposed to a fresh-spicy opening of mandarine-orange and cumin. The overall effect is of a clean and at the same time dark musk with a slightly metallic edge provided by the rose oxide/ambroxan combo. If you're into older Diptyques like L'Ombre Dans L'Eau or, let's say, L'Autre, you'll probably be disappointed, instead if you're up for an abstract take on synthetic musks entirely played on juxtapositions, this is a big winner. Minimalistic yet incredibly distinctive and satisfying. By all means modern stuff.

Great projection and lasting power.
