Diptyque Orpheon Eau de Parfum is a refined, close-wearing powdery, musky scent that turns extra vanillic over time, whereas jasmine blooms deep within the background, including a extra generalized sense of floralcy. I want I had extra to say–this was an easier scent journey and excellent for many who favor scents that don’t change a lot over time! These are the notes:
- high notes: juniper berries
- coronary heart notes: jasmine
- base notes: powdery notes, cedar, tonka bean
It opened with the chunk of juniper berries–crisp, cool, and pine-like–with vanilla to again it up, providing a refined sweetness earlier than jasmine bloomed sweetly within the background. The powder ended up displaying up after about 10 minutes of the perfume deciding on my pores and skin, which gave it a powdery, musky attribute that appeared to overwhelm the opposite notes. Every part that was within the opening turned obscure and subtle, which resulted in them dropping their nuance and coming throughout as a extra generic “clear” scent.
Orpheon was linear on my pores and skin; it had a refined jasmine and woods undercurrent that was dominated by powdery musk that turned progressively extra powdery and extra vanilla (the woods dropping out) by the second hour, which lasted by way of the drydown. Being linear is just not a foul factor as long as one enjoys it. I additionally seen with this that it wore notably near the pores and skin and appeared subtler, notably for an eau de parfum.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain properly right here in any other case.
This appeared to be a close to skin-scent from the preliminary software. At greatest, it hovered two to 3 inches above my pores and skin and with no sillage. It wasn’t weak per se, as I didn’t have bother detecting it on my pores and skin once I put my nostril near my wrist. It was shorter-wearing relative to different eau de parfums I’ve tried, together with some from Diptyque, and it was onerous to detect on my pores and skin after eight hours of damage.
I’m not as well-versed on this scent household, although it’s not the sort of perfume that pulls me personally, and if it had barely extra projection and higher longevity on my pores and skin, it could appear good sufficient for one thing smooth, flippantly floral and “clear” with a powdery musk.
