I saw a small editorial piece about Rosa Mundi (as distinct from Eau Rose) in a Sunday paper yesterday. It was on page 45 of the "You" magazine that comes with the Mail on Sunday. It showed a picture of a Diptyque bottle with the name Rosa Mundi written in their black and white script on it, and the small paragraph said it would contain two types of rose scents plus "a honeyed note". I scoured the internet for a review, but can't find anything about it anywhere. But it is definitely not the same as the Eau Rose, which has been out a little while and which I've already sampled.
And yes, Donna, it could refer to Rosamund Clifford, Henry II's mistress, after whom a rose was named, but it's said that the Rosa Mundi rose doesn't have much of a smell! Hopefully that won't apply to the new Diptyque.
LATER THIS MORNING ..... I'm now wondering whether I had a wish-fulfilment brainstorm! I can't find the missing page, can't find the scent on Diptyque's own website, or in any of the stores that usually carry their stuff! Did I mistake a picture of the candle for a picture of an eau de toilette????? Either I made a mistake - and if I did, my apologies all round - or else the editorial staff of the magazine got an advance preview of something that's not yet being marketed. Either way, what a bummer!
