Do Son Eau de Toilette fragrance notes

Reviews of Do Son Eau de Toilette

Do Son Eau de Toilette (2005) is a lovely white floral that is subtle but ever-present, lacking the stiffness or powdery feeling traditional white florals have thanks to a plush benzoin and musk base with a marine twist replacing the usual chypre or dry woods base typically used. Fabrice Pellegrin was on board with Diptyque for this one, and he brought a nice balance to a style usually derided as a scent of austerity or overt maturity. There isn't much more to it than that, as Do Son is another example of fundamental perfumery from a house that made its name on basic, diffuse perfumes with lots of note separation and transparency. My only bit of criticism is Do Son feels a bit too mainstream for Diptyque.

The opening of Do Son is a rather nice jasmine sambac over neroli, rose, and iris. The scent comes out the gate fairly prim but the jasmine softens the iris while the neroli sweetens it. Tuberose lives in the heart but neroli keeps it from getting too lurid as it sometimes can, maintaining the white floral standard while adding just enough sensual color. Pink pepper adds a modern warmth and was admittedly everywhere during this time, but it thankfully stays low-key so the benzoin and musk base do the talking. The dihydromyrcenol marine accord is a bit controversial but maintains the cleanliness of the neroli. Jasmine and tuberose are the main players keeping Do Son as not your average white floral, helping make an almost faux-gardenia accord with the iris. This is spring in a bottle, with wide appeal for casual floral fans willing to spend a bit more for something distinctive.

Wear time is average and sillage the same, with the best time to wear Do Son being anytime a happy soft floral is desired. Do Son is sold as unisex but this one feels like it leans feminine, but any lover of jasmine, tuberose, or neroli can pull off Do Son. The eau de parfum is denser but doesn't necessarily smell different to my nose, and also doesn't radiate any louder to me either. Simply put, Do Son is just plain pretty and a bit relaxing to boot, being devoid of any sharp edges white florals can have, while not seeming so plush as to be cloying. The aquatic finish will alienate purists but so will any obvious aromachems, but Do Son is otherwise fairly natural. Test for yourself because your mileage may vary from mine. Thumbs up.

Do Son is a rare thing--a subtle white floral. This is typical of Diptyque's offerings: a few quality notes, beautifully done. This one is all about Tuberose, with Orange Blossom and Jasmine layered on top of a slightly salty marine accord. I smell some phantom Gardenia as well and this line up starts to remind me of a very unsubtle white floral, Fracas, but pared right down to its bones. Do Son--in the Eau de Toilette, anyway--is interesting because it straddles a wide market; my wife loves to wear it and so does my 20 year old daughter. The inspiration--floral offerings at a pagoda in Indochina--seems spot on for this beautiful, pared-down floral.

If you cannot stand the EDP, you have found the "right" Do Son. Never have two fragrances in different concentrations had such polarizing effects upon me. I am simply shocked.

The EDT (this version I am reviewing) is so beautiful and wearable, yet slightly challenging as a great piece of art might be. There is true beauty here, and it should be praised. The seeming simplicity is a triumph of sorts that supports the star, tuberose, in a way that doesn't shout, but elicits joy held close with love.

If you love Tuberose, and so far, you are unable or unwilling to pay for FM's Carnal Flower, this quite possibly might fit your craving. No, it is NOT the same, but it has the same quality, and the same attention to detail I keep hoping other Tuberose-centric scents would strive to obtain.
