Since today is National Fragrance Day I thought it would be the perfect day to share this post.
Diptyque describes Vetyverio as a woody fragrance that’s a mixture of vetiver from Haiti, turkish rose and carrot seed. I don’t think I’ve ever noticed carrot seed as a perfume note before but I’m telling you it all works beautifully. I got the toilette(1.7oz/$90) and the matching candle(6.5oz/$65) from my local Space NK. On me the scent stays close to the skin and lasts about 1-3 hrs. I got Vetyverio at the start of winter and I’m still reaching for it as we enter spring. I think the EDT would be a great all year scent for those who like their woodsy fragrances on the lighter side.
Per my Internet research the founder of National Fragrance Day is unknown. Somehow it was decided that the world would celebrate fragrance on March 21st. My best guess is that date probably usually coincides with the start of spring. If you’re interested I have a
blurry “moody” night time shot of my perfume collection after the break. Not pictured is the Chanel Les Exclusifs in Jersey I picked up at the beginning of the year to replace my Chanel Beige(reviewed here) that was down to the last drop. I was taught that perfumes should be stored away from light and areas prone to temperature fluctuations.(See here). I keep my perfumes in the medicine cabinet of a guest bathroom that doesn’t get much use.
What scent are you reaching for lately? How do you store your fragrances?
I know I’m not the only one still holding on to their bottle of the original ck one 😜!
