I am an absolute sucker for a good blog sale. I discovered Anna's lovely blog - On the Dressing Table and simply couldn't resist this beauty from Diptyque. It was a total risk as I had never smelt it before - in fact, I had never experienced any Diptyque product despite having candle jar envy for many years! So, on seeing the beautiful bottle in the sale, I hastily read some reviews online. It sounded like my cup of tea so I took the plunge.
|I just love seeing SOLD appear next to my goodies!|
Well, I am so glad I went for this impromptu purchase. The perfume is beautiful and very 'me'. I really don't like strong, overpowering scents (I recently tried Thierry Mugler's Alien sample from Elle magazine which is exactly the kind of fragrance that I dislike). I tend to go for floral or fruity scents that are more natural, airy and gentle - think Jo Malone and Jo Loves.
Do Son to me, is tropical flowers after a rain storm; heady and floral without being overpowering. I love how it lingers gently all day and is still detectable by night fall. It is the perfect Spring/Summer fragrance and I can imagine wearing this on warm days in the sun and long balmy evenings.
I adore the poetic descriptions from Diptyque:
Relief from the sweltering climate, a pagoda on the shores of Ha Long Bay, where trade winds tenderly caress the flowers. A name that sings, undulating like waves upon a beach. Do Son is an eau de toilette rich with contrast, exuding the fresh, intoxicating sensuality of tuberose.
Beautiful description, beautiful fragrance.
