Reviews of Collection 34 : L'Eau du trente-quatre

A sort of bar-soap citrus smell. Aromatic, mixed, crushed leafy vibe. Pale floral. Something kind of spicy rises up, after a few moments. The top seems bright, clear, and summery fresh. It's different, a stand-out, with its top note combination.

The lavender mingles gently with the mild, leafy smells. Nothing loud or brash here, so far. I don't smell geranium at all. It must be carefully tucked away.

The base notes are slow to reveal themselves. This is a "long" perfume. It takes much time to develop. Base is even more mellow. Woods are barely there. Gentle. Aloof. Bar soap vibe comes on stronger later, for me. It's kind of musky. The whole thing fizzles out for me - I don't smell much more here.

Hours later it has a bit more "color", as I get a distant incense note, and a wet mossy-green thing.

The opening phase is a delight. I get a lot of lemon, grapefruit and verbena. This is mixed with lavender and juniper, resulting in the citrus notes being softened and warmer; this is not so much of a zesty summer cologne but more of a bright and warm set of opening notes that is executed very well.

The drydown develops a nice geranium, whilst the citrus too notes linger for longer, blending in well with the floral components. There a whiffs of birch leaves present, but only very weakly so and quite unconvincing.

The base turns woodsy, which is represented by a discreet cedar impression. This is a soft cedar without much of a pencil-shavings component on my skin. A gentle spiciness, thanks to some - rather unexciting - patchouli, with a touch of labdanum give the final stages additional depth.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and seven hours of longevity; with the last couple of hours being very close to my skin.

A very nice summery opening with a good drydown, with some notes that a on the flat and weaker side, whilst the core components are well-made. 3.25/5.

A very successful flanker, and legitimate in its own right.
Comparing this one's notes to 34 blvd St. Germain, we see more citrus, a bit less spice, and less floral.
The citrus notes give a gentle and lovely (rather than crisp) opening. Indeed, "gentle" will be a theme here. The spices are a gentle blend. The scent is clean, clear, attractive and more unisex in style than 34 blvd SG. The geranium note here is compelling -- a soapy green rose sort of note. The scent overall is well executed, restrained and elegant. The dry-down settles into a chypre style, hints of patchouli with a certain tang but not overdone.

Was told that Ed34 is the same composition as 34 Blvd St Germaine but in reverse order. Not sure if this is true or not but both are excellent fragrances. Ed34 has a very nice yet short lived citrus and spice. It's mostly lemon and bitter orange and lasts for only the first few minutes before the geranium note appears and takes over. The geranium is unique and very elegant. I get hints of cedar and patchouli, but the geranium remains almost linear for the rest of the way. It's a definite unisex fragrance and I could easily see this being enjoyed by anyone. Nice green elements and would work well spring through summer. Thumbs up.

One of the most stunning flankers you could possibly find. Check out that Cedar in the base mixing with a rather tangy moss note after a breathtaking opening. Amazing juice.

Mr Pescheaux created the wonderful Senses for Yohji but also worked on 1 Million for Men. He must be some sort of genius

Being from the city of birches (Umeå, Sweden) I was happy to get a sample of this fragrance. I have a really hard time picking up on the birch leaves in the beginning though, so the birchleaves that interested me when reading the notes was a small disappointment.

I have been in the Diptyque Paris store and the absolute wall of perfume that hits you upon entering is overwhelming. I think I've read somewhere that this is the experience Olivier Pescheux has tried to capture. The opening is indeed violent and borderline cloying.

Out of this somewhat chaotic opening however, a lightly smoky accord not at all unsimilar from the one in Knize ten emerges. Maybe it is the floral accent from the geranium and labdanum combined with the smoky character from the incense that evokes this association in me. I can even percieve a subtle leathery tone, although it is not listed in the notes.

Eau de trente-quatre is warm, green and natural. Patchouli is a note that I usually do not enjoy very much, but in this case it remains in the background. The cedar is sublime and with a palisander type aroma.

It wears close to the body, the opening explosion of notes wears down to a comforting, pleasant smell for your own enjoyment. Sillage is moderate.
