Diptyque Do Son was launched in 2013, created by Fabrice Pellegrin. Inspired by Yves Coueslant's Vietnamese childhood, these are the smells of the flowers his mother loved. Notes of tuberose, rose, orange blossom, musk and iris. This is the EDP, eau de parfum.
From the brand - "Tuberose asserts itself, expressing all its sunny, hazy, creamy, indolent seductiveness. Anyone with blood in their veins will succumb to the irresistible temptation of this insolently seductive white flower.."
Fragrantica - "Ethereal white floral. As a white floral scent enthusiast, this is definitely love at first sniff for me. Smells like a very realistic fresh bouquet of white flowers, but even better. It is elegant, unique, has good sillage, and quite long lasting on my skin."
Fragrantica - "This is one of those ethereal fragrances that seems to capture a moment in time so perfectly, and such a photorealistic garden of white florals. The green element helps the realism, where you can detect the stems and life of the flowers; they’re living, not picked or crushed. There’s also something vaguely musty about it, like the garden is enclosed by old wood, not in a barnyard kind of way but like a cleaner wooden building or gazebo/pagoda."
Fragrantica - "i think what makes do son great is something more than the sum of its parts. maybe it's a mystique, maybe it's just a personal association on my part, maybe it's just the hopes of a romantic mind, but something in here feels primal, nostalgic, and peaceful. like a hug from my mother, like a a long nap on a cool autumn day, like home. fairly intimate sillage, respectable but not exemplary longevity, unforgettable olfactory design."
Fragrantica - "It is the scent of exotic white blooms shimmering in the moonlight of a southern french tropical garden. Exotic and heady. There is little breeze."
