L’eau Eau de Toilette
L’eau Eau de Toilette is a fragrance by Diptyque. The notes of this fragrance are cinnamon, clove, geranium, sandalwood, rose
The very first personal fragrance created by Diptyque, L’Eau is based on a 16th century potpourri recipe and is brimming with eccentric charm. It opens with a cobweb-clearing dose of clove and cinnamon with a touch of sweetness, like some marvelous 16th century rendition of red hots, and it stays spicy for awhile, until the soothing sandalwood steps in and the clove and cinnamon calm down. Please take note, the clove and cinnamon do not disappear ? they just settle into a minuet with sandalwood, geranium and rose that is surprisingly genteel and elegant. It is easy to imagine wearing this fragrance in another time ? riding in a horse drawn carriage to visit the country, pressing a single rose in the pages of a book as a memento of a chance encounter, following the elaborate rituals of courtship of an earlier age. Yet, it has a lively freshness and graceful warmth that translates beautifully to modern times.
