Eau Duelle – diptyque’s New Fall Fragrance

There are several fragrances from diptyque that I love and use in various forms (eau de toilette, bath soaps, body washes, home fragrances, candles, etc) so when we got a preview of their newest fragrance, Eau Duelle, I knew I had another favorite to add to the list.

Eau Duelle, from the spicy family of diptyque’s fragrances, is duality – two becoming one. A mix of white vanilla and black frankincense, East and West ingredients. At first you instantly experience spicy notes of cardamom, saffron and elemi which then continues to vetiver, firnat vanilla, etc (see below for the rest of the notes)

This tea-time event took us on a mini journey through the creation of the fragrance, letting you sample the raw materials and speak with the perfume creator, Fabrice Pelligrin (my french has deteriorated as the years have passed so we were very lucky to have a translator)

I love the fact that this vanilla-based eau de toilette isn’t the sugary vanilla scents that are typical of personal fragrances (I’ve had a particularly unfortunate incident with bees because of one of those fragrances). To say that diptyque’s Eau Duelle is the grown up version of those fragrances is not doing it justice. It is significantly more, a sophisticated fragrance – sweet enough for those who love sweet fragrances but not too sweet to deter anyone else. Eau Duelle is available now in two sizes – 1.7 oz retails for $88.00 and 3.4oz retails for $120
