Sunday SCENT N°11
Travel in time with a trip through the senses: With this motto DIPTYQUE launched the honourable 34 -collection as tribute to the first their fragrances, produced and sold at the legendary DIPTYQUE address, 34 Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris. This delicious creation, that we were allowed to test, bears the elegant name Benjoin Bohème and is definitely a member of the super exclusives – the perfect pick when it comes to vintage glamour at the most luxurious level ... This scent reminds me of: Wearing floor-long dresses with precious embroideries … a glamorous sunset followed by an equally dramatic night in Marrakech. This is how I felt when I experienced this creation on my skin for the first time. Power and femininity contrasting with a disarming air nonchalance perfectly describes the olfactory aura of this wonderful perfume.
What it feels like: When this perfume touches your skin, one becomes transported into another dimension of time. Although this retro flair dominates the olfactory composition, the output is simultaneously modern. It doesn’t feel too heavy, opulent or obsolete. The fragrance indulges the senses with a nuance of vintage glamour and elegance, which is so often missing in today’s fragrances.
For: If woman or man, this 2015 launched EAU DE PARFUM was made simply to shine. Especially in the darker, colder months it’s a very welcome highlight, illuminating the reduced minimalism and often impersonal mood of today.
Side note: The Collection 34 welcomes a quartet of eau de parfums. Extraordinary compositions in very special bottles, unique and irresistible. They all accomplish one thing: to whisper a thousand stories onto the skin.
Available at: diptyqueparis.eu for € 150,– (100ml Eau de Parfum).
