    Default Compare L'Ombre dans L'Eau edt and edp, peas and tanks!

    I was about to order a bottle of L'Ombre dans L'Eau edt as my sample of the edt just ran out, Spring's almost here, and I love the stuff! Then I remember it's offered in a edp now. OK, I try to do some research and find there's just not much info available. Then I read that some people suspect that the edt has recently gone through a reformulation yadda yadda yadda.

    So I'm wondering if anyone has compared the two scents since the new bottle design was released. If so, whatcha think? How does the eau de parfum compare to the (possibly reformulated) eau de toilette?

    I have the edt and have tried the edp. I didn't notice any discernible difference other than better longevity.

    The EDP is worth trying. It's richer, darker and denser. Think of it this way: the EDT evokes a rose garden in spring; the EDP is that same garden in late summer when everything is maturing or ripening - sweeter roses, darker and lusher tomato vines. The comparison isn't mine - I remember seeing it somewhere online - but to me it described the difference between the two perfectly.

    Thanks guys!

    I think I've read all the reviews/comparisons on-line and there aren't many. I'll be responsible and order samples of both so I can "get my sniff on proper", as Barth Red McMarley likes to put it.

    Please report back. As a fan of the EDT I'd love to hear you impressions.

    Wow the EDP is the EDT all grown up.
    Curves, heals, red lipstick and all.

    It's much more voluptuous.

    All the notes are more prominent.

    for swap/sale:

    Very cool! The EDT is already quite strong to my nose, so I definitely want to sample before buying. Sounds good though. Sometimes too much of everything is just enough.

    I'll report back once I get to sniff this edp.
