If wearing Serge Lutens' Sa Majeste la Rose makes you feel as though you're holding a lush bouquet of fresh red roses, then spritzing on some L'Ombre dans L'Eau might feel like fixing a single dark rose bud on the lapel of your dinner jacket. I simply adore the way it wears on my skin -tiny dewdrops green with hints of crushed leaves and broken stems but losing none of the luscious signature of the Bulgarian rose. The rose note never gets overbearing but stays tasteful throughout, a single budding rose peeking out of the foliage. I believe when it comes to rose soliflores, few could come within touching distance of this elegant Diptyque bestseller.
Enchante. 'Shadow on the water' indeed.
