Diptyque Geranium Odorata & Eau de Lavande ~ new fragrances

Diptyque Geranium Odorata & Eau de Lavande, large bottles

French niche line Diptyque will launch two new fragrances, Geranium Odorata and Eau de Lavande, this month. The new scents join Eau Moheli and Eau Rose in the brand's Les Florales collection.

Geranium Odorata ~ "Geranium Odorata takes us into clusters of the crimson-colored flowers whose springtime blossoming announces the arrival of a sunny season. The geranium is both a masculine and feminine flower, sharing some scents with the rose. It is bright, fresh, crisp and diverse." With bergamot, geranium bourbon, rose geranium, pink pepper, tonka bean, vetiver and cedar.

Eau de Lavande ~ "Eau de Lavande has a complex, generous nature. It pays homage to this great perfumery classic, magnifying the beauty of its rare scent. The fragrance is warm and subtle, alive and delicate." With lavender, coriander, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Diptyque Eau de Lavande roll-on

Diptyque Geranium Odorata and Eau de Lavande will be available in Eau de Toilette, in 20 ml roll-on or 100 ml spray.

    Does anyone else find it strange to see the word “odorata” in a fragrance name? Still, I’d like to try it – and love that Diptyque is doing a roller ball!

    • floragal says:

      There should be a federal law that all fragrances are required to do a roller ball :)

      • Robin says:

        Oh, my law would be a small 20 ml travel spray! Same bottle, but no rollerball.

        • floragal says:

          If you run for office I will definitely vote for you.

          • C.H. says:

            Draft Robin! :)

          • Robin says:

            I will have to come up with a good anti-roll-on logo ;-)

    • Robin says:

      It would make more sense, but surely not be a good marketing strategy, to call it pelargonium odorata — the latin for scented-leaf geraniums.

    • Chanterais says:

      I have a question! I recently bought my first rollerball scent, and I really dig the concept, and like how the rolled application gives a different effect than an atomiser. Love the price, love the portability. All good. Except–okay, look, this is gross, I know–after using it for a few weeks, I’ve noticed a few….er….flakies floating around the vial. They’re skin cells, right? My gross skin cells just hanging out, like “Hey, girl. We’re your epidermal material and we’re her to party”?

      Because I am not okay with that. Are they going to contaminate the perfume? And am I the only disgusting person that this happens to?

      • Robin says:

        Uh, yeah. And no, you’re not the only one. That’s exactly why I don’t like rollerballs.

  2. C.H. says:

    Hm. I regard this with caution optimism? Both of these sound interesting, but Les Florales (I didn’t realize they were pitching it as a unified collection?) are among my least favorite Diptyques–even if someone gave me a bottle, I don’t think I’d wear Eau Rose, and I outright dislike Eau Moheli. Maybe one of these will turn it around for me tho!

    • HemlockSillage says:

      Agreed. I expected to love Eau Rose and didn’t. Eau Moheli was. . .weird. I keep trying to like it. I hope these next two are more like the L’Eau de Neroli or L’Eau des Hesperides. I like geranium and lavender, and would be curious to have a nice summer weight cologne. Here’s hoping!

      • C.H. says:

        Oh yes, that’s a good wish–I’ll join you in hoping these will be more like the Neroli or Hesperides!

    • Robin says:

      It seems to be a “unified collection”, I guess, since it’s got a different bottle shape from the rest of the line & all the packaging says “les florales”.

      • C.H. says:

        I do really love the Eau Rose graphics…

  3. nozknoz says:

    It seems odd to me that Diptyque is shifting to soliflores. I wonder how theirs compare with those of other lines such as Annick Goutal and L’Occitane. I’m not complaining exactly. I prefer their more adventurous fragrances, but I’d rather smell well-crafted soliflores around me than the fruity, aquatic or dryer sheet varieties.

  4. Omega says:

    Eau de Lavande sounds fantastic, rollerball, not so much, spray darn it, a spray!
