I'm not loyal to many brands. If someone, somewhere makes a better or cheaper version, I'll suffer no guilty conscience moving to another brand. I do have exceptions though and for perfume, Diptyque is one of them.
I currently own L'Ombre dans L'Eau- a strong rose and blackcurrent scent- in the black bakelite travel edition. As an eau de toilette, it lasts a remarkably long time and I like that I'm wearing a very individual, pretty uncommon scent. I guess I'm a bit of a perfume snob, I can't understand people that still wear Charlie Red or Bodyshop's finest when there are so many other smells to make your own (I'm sorry if this is you, but I promise there are some amazing olfactory delights waiting for you!)
I get quite a few emails about launches and press days for brands I'm not particularly interested in, so when I received an invite from Diptyque it was one I instantly said yes to. I spent a lovely afternoon visiting their West End store, sampled their new EDP editions and also managed to grab a few minutes with the UK Managing Director Amanda Morgan who went through some of the perfumed body products with me- the exfoliator is one of her favourite products.
Have you tried Diptyque? What did you think?
