    Me too. I haven't even given it a full wearing yet. It's a superb scent, not very long lasting, but just not sure I want to smell like ripe figs!

    Do Son has been on my wishlist for a while. However, I was in the Dyptique shop in San Francisco and smelled Philosykos! Fig Fig FIG! Plus, now, make sure that whomever you get Diptyque from has the new, beautiful ROUNDED bottles!

    Yes, this one is on my wish list. It's similar to Mazzolari's Vetiver.
    BTW, Diptyque is changing their packaging, and I suspect a price increase will also occur:

    If only one then its 34 Boulevard Saint Germain for the sheer versatility and complexity.

    Otherwise L'Eau Trois and Tam Dao are genius.

    hmmm, tough call, but I'd say Philosykos, even though longevity sucks. Otherwise L'Ombre Dans L'Eau is excellent IMO.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    My favorite of the several I've tried is L'Ombre Dans L'Eau - but then I love the overgrown walled rose garden feel accentuated by the smell of freshly crushed and prickly tomato leaves.

    34 Boulevard St Germain gets a thumbs up as well...especially the dry down. As mentioned by others mildly chaotic at first as it cycles through the Diptyque gallery of scents, but the end is sublime...a romantic symphony concluding with a contented deep sigh and expectation of further pleasures.

    A great and under-rated house with reasonable pricing.

    Love this stuff! Been on a huge cumin kick and this has helped sate it. The Eau Mage is also very good (and also uses cumin).

    After seeing this thread I realized I had a small spray sample of Eau Duelle and pulled the cap noticing there was a little of the juice on the sprayer. Barely any to be honest but I rubbed it on my wrists and was reminded how incredible this scent is. I'm not sure I could pull it off but this would smell amazing on a woman and any that would be wearing this would have me spellbound.

    I haven't had a chance to sample any of the others from this house but if their compositions are anything like ED I suspect I would like at least a few of them.

    L'Ombre Dans L'Eau, though Eau Lente and Philosykos would run it close.

    L'Ombre dans l'Eau, Philosykos, and the Neroli cologne are all great but I'm going to be the odd man out and go with Eau de Lierre. Poor thing gets no love, but I find it quite nice and although it is a leafy-green fragrance it has insane longevity for me.

    philosykos. I have liked them all, but found the others less compelling (ie i have forgotten what they smell like)
