Fleur de Peau Eau de Parfum
Fleur de Peau Eau de Parfum is a fragrance by Diptyque. The notes of this fragrance are Aldehydes, pink pepper, rose, iris, ambrette, ambergris, musk
As part of Diptyque’s 50th anniversary celebration, Fleur de Peau is meant to turn back the clock to the 1960’s, and one of the counterculture’s most beloved scents- musk. Warm, sweet, and deeply sensual, the musk oils of the 60’s were more powerful than subtle, so how then to update that classic feeling for today’s grown-up, yet nostalgic, audience? By wedding a gorgeous bouquet of various musks to a beautiful, iris-driven floral heart, Fleur de Peau has us in awe of its sophisticated, subtle, musky perfection.
The musks at the core of Fleur de Peau are, simply put, heavenly- a divine combination of notes both cotton-soft and rich, light and soapy-given an extra element of sparkle with a perfect amount of aldehydes.
A beautiful iris note- a bit powder, a bit paper, a touch of woodsy earth, but primarily clean- blends with fruity, gently ambery ambrette seed, and ambergris further extends a rich, mineralic tone that deepens the musks without displacing them. All together, it creates a skin scent with every bit as much complexity as a towering oriental, the kind of fragrance that will bring you back to your wrist countless times over the scent’s impressive lifespan. It’s a trip both forwards and backwards in time, a scent that celebrates the past with the sophistication of the future- and really, what could be more perfect for Diptyque’s 50th anniversary? Musk lovers- your perfect skin scent has arrived.
