    Default Diptyque's Eau de Parfums are available, any thoughts on them?

    I've received an email from a known french retailer that already have Philosykos and L'Ombre dans L'Eau available. I love these fragrances so i was tempted to pull the trigger. Luckily i calmed down waiting for some reviews or information.

    Does anyone know if the smell of both have changed? are them stronger or longer lasting?

    Thanks!

    Wasn't aware that any of the Diptyque scents had changed, Only have all the original releases.

    First in Fragrance has the complete line since some weeks. I, too, wonder wether Diptyque changed anything; in my case I would be interested in Eau Lente.

    I hope they increased the strength of Philoskykos!!! I want a bottle so bad but the longevity issues scare me

    Lloyd i read on fragrantica that these edp's were being released later this year (october or so), so the email I got with this information caught me by surprise.

    I'd be interested in Philosykos, but I'm scared they'd change how wonderful it already is...I don't find the strength to be too bad though, one aspect I like about it is it doesn't feel dense or heavy.....

    That's what I fear, maybe they improve sillage or longevity but I don't want that if it means sacrifice their great smells.

    What about the perfume oils (7,5ml) of Phylosykos and L'Ombre Dans L'Eau?

    Has anybody tried this?? Both sounds great and bottle is very elegant!

    They had the PHILOSYKOS in my local SpaceNK today. Now I am not a fan of the original, don't do fig fragrances. To me its deeper and richer than the edt. I have washed my hands and can still smell it clearly on my skin.

    No sign of L'Ombre Dans L'Eau, I own this in edt so really want to sniff the edp.

    It costs ú85 and I believe its the 100mls size.

    Can you elaborate on what you mean by deeper donna? Is it still very figgy? More milky notes? Other notes?

    Default Re: Diptyque's Eau de Parfums are available, any thoughts on them?

    Yes still very very figgy, that is what I mean about richer and deeper. Yes a I did get a milky vibe, not talking a bottle of milk, has a fruity sweetness. Actually as someone who is not a fan of the edt, I really liked it.

    That sounds enticing, as what I don't like in Philosykos EDT is the excessive greenness. Milky and rich is more up my alley...

    In the UK they have them in their London store(I have a sample of both and agree about Philosykos being stronger, haven't tried the otheryet or compared longevity). They're also available from the Liberty website in the UK who have Do Son listed as well but out of stock.

    Wonderful news! Looking forward to getting the L'Ombre dans L'Eau.

    Default Re: Diptyque's Eau de Parfums are available, any thoughts on them?

    I've already tried a couple of them recently.

    Philosykos is definitely stronger and projects reasonable well for the first couple of hours. I didn't have it on all day so can't say much about longevity. However, I still got that two-dimensional/hollow vibe about it, so that's a deal-breaker for me.

    I also sampled L'Ombre dans L'Eau and was somewhat disappointed. It smells pretty identical to the EDT and that's my gripe with it. I was at least expecting it to be a fraction darker or greener but it wasn't. I only sprayed it on some card, so can't say anymore. I'll try and test it again sometime.

    Still waiting for Eau Lente...

    The impression that I'm getting from these EDPs is that Diptyque is trying very hard NOT to offend anyone (let alone disappoint). I would have preferred a bit more edge, with the odd star note amplified even more.

    I hate digging up old threads...but this is the most logical place to post from what I've found.

    Can someone that's tried Eau Duelle EdT and EdP share their thoughts on each? Specifically the vanilla, which has a stronger vanilla? Which is more masculine of the two...which is better in your opinion.

    For me the EDP smells better and is richer in its mixed components. A tad more masculine to my unrefined nose. Can't really speak to the concentration of the Vanilla. That seems pretty equal to me.

    Convenient post resurrection, because last week at the Diptyque store I smelled the two versions of l'Ombre (I didn't smell Eau duelle, so I cannot comment on that). As others said, they are quite similar. The edp does last more, in the sense also that the green-fresh note lasts longer, and I think it has a more noticeable rose and less fruit. In the end, I got the edp.

    Thanks Hednic. Cacio, I'll have to seek L'ombre out when I'm at Diptyque next month. After reading comments on the other various EdP fragrances from Diptyque and trying the EdP of Tam Dao myself a few weeks ago I'm guessing they're superior much more refined and longer lasting. I wonder why they're not making the move to EdP around the board...aside from the fact that the EdTs are a little cheaper.

    Part of the style of the house was indeed a certain lightness, I guess now they are trying to diversify a bit. I suppose depending on market response, they may expand or reduce the experiment.

    While my Tam Dao EdT will be a go-to this summer. I don't think I'll find myself reaching for the EdT any other time of the year.
