    Default Latest Diptyque - Eau Rihla!

    https://www.basenotes.net/threads/48...=1#post5159071

    Have any Basenoters tried this one yet? Thoughts positive and/or negative?

    Sure blind buy for me.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Notes sound interesting. Will always try out new Diptyques, but have not been enamored lately.

    Exactly why I'm not interested. They seem to have fallen to the curse of becoming just another dull niche house trying to milk their brand legacy for all its worth.

    This fragrance in question just sounds like generic oriental slop. Saffron, Iris, Vanilla, Cedar...just add cypriol and you have the basic template of every oriental niche fragrance released in the last 10 years. Instead, they've gone for raspberry and leather instead...how original.

    People complain about derivative fragrances in the designer world, like the dark blues and woody ambers and ambroxan. I find the derivative nonsense in the niche world far more annoying.

    This just looks like something designed purely to be sold in a Dubai airport, right down to the label. It's perfume at its most cynical.

    The whole Orpheon launch put me off. To me, the advertising, the "story", and sales pitch by their SAs seemed almost like gaslighting. I was expecting something woody and unisex, recalling old Paris. The juice itself is so different than what all that marketing presented, I'm still shocked. My thoughts anyway.

    Keen to try, as with any Diptyque. Eau de Minthe and Eau Capitale, Tempo and Vetiverio EdP released over the last few years are all solid fragrances in my opinion. Orpheon seems to get a lot of flak on here, but I haven't tried it so cannot possibly comment (even though I agree the advertising was a bit... not on brand).

    Interesting bottle design, was used with their black labels, but some change can be good.
    Note wise, can go many direction: Very good or just average but sure sample worthy!!
