Diptyque : L'eau du Trente-Quatre

Unlike any other perfume, L’eau du Trente-Quatre is a sophisticated and versatile new scent. It is the latest EDT from French niche line Diptyque, second chapter after 34 Boulevard Saint Germain collection. This new fragrance was said to be a lively interpretation of the original 34 Boulevard Saint Germain, it captures the essence of the original boutique, during the time when weather changes and the greenest notes take over from the warmer and more sensual notes of its first chapter. It was 2 years ago when Diptyque launched 34 Boulevard Saint Germain to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the house.  

When I first wear Diptyque 34 L’eau du Trente-Quatre on my skin, the dominant scent that touches my skin is citrus-like, smells like lemon (Top Note). It is actually grapefruit with blends of bitter orange, but made me think of lemon. Anyway, it smells so juicy & fresh! Then, a woody scent takes place (Middle Note). Perhaps it’s the blend of Cedar Wood & Verbena. Smells like a warm sunny afternoon, walking along the countryside.

After 30minutes of sweetness with citrus notes, it turns to more greeny notes, what an interesting twist! Smells like a fresh leaves in the morning and abit warm musky. Then, I smell something lavender-ish! Something on the floral side but smells herbal lavender. Few hours later I felt like my skin smells like a baby, as if I’m dusted with baby powder! When everything blends together, L’eau du Trente-Quatre turns from sweet juicy to almost powdery smell. It is indeed a complex type of fragrance but love it to bits! Diptyque is the first fragrance that gives me a different kind of smell throughout the day, literally brightens up my day!

Diptyque L’eau du Trentre-Quatre is available in 50ml & 100ml Eau de Toilette.

Notes: Grapefruit, bitter orange, verbena, lemon, lavender, juniper berries, fig leaves, galbanum, Egyptian geranium, tuberose, cinnamon, nutmeg, Virginian cedar wood, white musk.

Alright, enough said of the EDT. The box comes with Diptyque's signature product as well - scented candle! 
This size can burn for 70 hours long. They have different type of sizes and scents, but I picked this as my favorite. Burn it for 1 hour every night before bed, helps to sooth & calm your mind.

Yours Truly,
