  1. Fragrance Review: Diptyque Geranium Odorata

    Geranium Odorata

    Genre: Floral

    Diptyque’s Geranium Odorata is a very simple composition. After the briefest of bright bergamot top notes, it reveals a very soapy, green geranium note, supported by little more than some discreet woods and a clean white musk. The scent is linear, fading rather than developing, until all that remain are traces of abstract woods and a skin musk that might be at home in a household product or bath amenity.
