I should have written this post weeks ago, when we had a brief period of glorious summer weather. Other than that, it’s been a rather odd summer, weather-wise, after a rather odd spring.

But onward and upward: this is the last of my seasonal vanilla posts, since I’ve already done fall, winter and spring. As always, do chime in with your own picks in the comments!

Diptyque Eau Duelle: The vanilla martini top notes are perfect, and even though I don’t love the dry down (a quiet hum of tea and spice) quite as well, Eau Duelle would be my first choice for a vanilla that can take the heat of high summer…

Diptyque Tempo ~ fragrance review

Tempo* is one of two new perfumes that celebrate Diptyque L’Eau’s 50th birthday. (I’ve already tackled the ‘softie’ of the pair, Fleur de Peau.) Here’s what Diptyque has to say about Tempo:

There’s really only two kinds worth having… Diptyque or Trudon. — David Sedaris, on how he decided […] Continue reading

The daily lemming

Eau de Sens, from Diptyque, now comes in a hair mist: “Light and delicate, this hair mist leaves an invisible yet intensely scented veil of fragrance on the hair. Enriched with nourishing camellia oil, it fortifies, beautifies, and perfumes the hair. This new incarnation of Eau des Sens is bright and zesty, enhanced by fresh, […] Continue reading
