Diptyque L'Autre. One of my favorites of all time.

I need to revisit this one when I'm in the shop again. Is it still available?

Cardamon is listed as a major note, and I have realized that I gravitate towards this note quite often.

Sebastian, if you like Guerlain's Vetiver and want a cleaned up streamlined simpler version, then the TF Grey Vetiver will work. If you want something deeper smokier and dryer, then Malle's VE or Lalique Encre Noir I'd say, and if you really like the Guerlain, then I'd recommend trying some older versions of it, from the ribbed bottle of the 90's to early 2000's to the older square gold border splash version...




Anyone know where I can get that Ellena book? Amazon doesn't seem to have it

It is still available. I don't know this for a fact, but what I've been told is that the boutiques do not have it out on display, but they do have it. So you just have to ask about it.

I have had the experience of shopping at retailers that carry Diptyque fragrances, and they have no idea what I'm talking about when I mention L'Autre.

I was at the Diptyque store in NYC, a standalone store, and they had a bunch of items I've never seen anywhere else like at store within store / counters inside of various retailers so it might be something only sold at their boutiques or certain doors.

But I don't know if it's worth it. It's very short, and mostly marketing (or with a tone suggesting Hermes took a hand in editing) or a recap of things you would know already. He could just have released his own thoughts as a couple of essays (as Roudnitska did in Muller's book). Well, 6 euros for the kindle version, about the right price for the content.

On the topic of masculine fragrances, this snippet from LT's new blog was hilarious: https://perfumesilove.wordpress.com/2016/04/10/pitralon-classic/

AbdesSalaam Attar - Chillum for me today,. Really digging this one, it's comprised of just three ingredients, tobacco, ginger and sandalwood. Silage is average, projection isn't great

SOTD was Carven Vetiver original formula (http://theperfumedcourt.com/Products/Carven-Vetiver---Original-Formula-Extrait__carvenVetExtrait.aspx). Extrait, the full hog.

 

It really grew on me. Put it on about 12 hours ago, ran around town for 4 intense, long meetings, it still smells identical. Perhaps a little more rounded, a little less pungent and aggressive (not that it was in the first place). In theory there is oakmoss, but I can't smell it unless I think about it. The oats like feeling typical of Encre Noire comes round, softened, in the drydown.

 

It doesn't project, and stays invisible when you're not thinking about it. Then you think about it and you detect its presence, it's quite a beautiful thing. Very tempted to grab a much larger sample for regular use, despite the price. At Extrait concentration, it will last for a while anyway.

Continuing my chase of the CdG dragon. Today CdG Kyoto. Not sure about the longevity though.. its very important to me.. recently anything below EdP in concentration seems to lack the longevity im looking for.. been trying to increase it using lotion before spraying but still havent found out how effective it is.

Does anyone have experience with Diptyque's L'eau des Hesperides?

Bond Chinatown today. This is a nice scent, but maybe not for me. A bit sweet/gourmand, which is something I like to smell in passing, but like less to smell all day, wafting up from my chest. I think maybe it's that this is floral gourmand, so it lacks the bitter note you get from coffee or dark chocolate or anise that gives a bit of yang to other gourmands.
