Diptyque Volutes £55.00 for 50ml
Diptyque Volutes was luckily enough to be under my tree at Christmas, and my first dip into the perfume range. The candles and bath products which I have tried in the past have left me smitten with the brand. A brand that up until I started blogging had the misfortune of not showing up on my radar.
The fragrances aren't cheap, £55 for 50ml which sounds a lot but when compared to the likes of Jo Malone which to date is £40 for 30ml to actually works out cheaper ml for ml.
"An elegant boat crossing from Marseilles to Saigon. The atmosphere is full of honeyed Egyptian tobacco, spices gleaned from the ports along the way, and a touch of iris. Myrrh, everlasting flower, and styrax complete the sense of exoticism." Diptyque
The scent Volutes resides in the 'woody' section of the fragrance catalogue, containing fresh spices, Everlasting Flower, Blond Tabacco and Honey which leads the initial whiff to gauge on the grown up musky side that normally I would hate. The introduction of honey sweetens the heaviness of the tabacco and transports the scent into a unique aroma that is sexy and sophisticated.
For me this is definitely an evening fragrance as it's a little heavy for day time use, but if you like your perfumes running in this range then of course this would be right up your street.
