Diptyque - Limited Edition L'Ombre Dans L'Eau Eau de Parfum - 75 ml spray
Notes: Top: Blackcurrant leaf Middle & Base: Bulgarian Rose
Poetically named L'Ombre dans l'Eau, it is a fragrance that recalls a lush garden at water's edge and a brief glimpse of life.
The green rustling of blackcurrant leaves, the sweet bounty of roses of old...despite its seeming simplicity, this fragrance is built around an extremely precise balance of the two principal notes, such that they fit together in perfect harmony.
A rustic, bursting opening; after the blackcurrant leaf sap and buds, very botanic, very green, one experiences bergamot and mandarin - two tart, explosive citruses - which mellow the initial bitterness of the blackcurrant. Then the Bulgarian rose (Rosa damascena) appears, quite fresh, in its most natural state, dense, faceted, and heady. A fragrance that surprises with this unexpected accord that gives it a superbly natural appeal.
The Eau de Parfum is rosier still than the Eau de Toilette. A generous, sensual, almost heady rose, blooming amongst the cool of the stems, at once mossy and tart.
