My Nordstrom regrettably does not have Diptyque (yet?). But it does have Goutal, which is worth checking too. My favorite is Sables (warm and sweet); worth grabbing a leftover bottle of vetiver too, which is being discontiued (substituted by the new Eau de Vetiver, which is lighter and more citrusy). But even if you want to remain in the pretty floral territory, there are many examples like Heure exquise or Songes.
But the weird thing is that, despite their lightness of concentration, the compositions are fairly loud. It's like the olfactory equivalent of blasting a foghorn into a canyon and listening to the echo die out.
I haven't seen the full Goutal line there yet, though -- just bits and pieces.

Holy cow, did that smell like a ginger biscuit, or what? I can't imagine how any of that recent pastry/cake line were wearable, but they were incredibly realistic!
