DiptyqueL'Eau de Tarocco (2009) Eau de Cologne ------------------
Top Notes: Orange, Grapefruit Middle Notes: Saffron, Cinnamon Base Notes: Cedar, Incense
------------------ Saffron and cedar make this eau de cologne memorable, and different from others in the genre. I don't quite smell the blood orange here (that's what the name 'tarocco' means in Italian). The citrus notes that are the hallmark of the genre are fine in this one, however, and seem to complement the spice-and-wood theme very well. Incense rounds out the accord and gives it a bit of distinction and suavity. One doesn't tire of this; it makes a good steady scent to wear in fine weather.
"WINDSOR’s ingredients are a tour of the British Empire Edward once ruled. Its top note is British gin, Jamaican lime and a touch of Scottish highland pine. “Duke of Windsor roses”, those he preferred in his garden, the fragrant Nuits de Young variety, are the middle note. The base note is Bahamian orange, cedar from Canada plus a dab of Australian eucalyptus. Windsor was introduced in 2009."
