An Ode To Eau Duelle



Recently I’ve been scouring department stores for a new fragrance. I’ve been focusing mainly on Jo Malone, Tom Ford and Dior – I’ve found a few that I like but still haven’t completely made my mind up about which one I want. All of this searching got me thinking which fragrance do I truly consider to be the one, and if I had to pick just one perfume to wear for all of eternity, which would it be? Naturally I realised that it was time for another ode on my blog – An ode to Diptyque’s Eau Duelle.

Over the last year Eau Duelle has become my signature fragrance. I’ve always been obsessed with anything vanilla scented, but there’s just something about this one that is so much more than your traditional vanilla fragrance. With top notes of cardamom, elemi and juniper, middle notes of saffron and calamus, and base notes of vanilla, black tea and amber, Eau Duelle really does have a beautiful balance between spicy and sweet as well as light and dark. I’d really recommend this to anyone looking for a vanilla fragrance with a bit of a spicy and musky twist to it. It’s what I like to dub as Vanilla For Grown-ups. All hail perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin for creating this delightful EDP and be sure to have a sniff next time you’re at your local Diptyque counter!
