L’Ombre dans l’Eau – Eau de Toilette
L’Ombre dans l’Eau – Eau de Toilette is a fragrance by Diptyque. The notes of this fragrance are black currant leaves and Bulgarian rose
An amazingly evocative scent, this transports you to an English riverside garden with overgrown roses and a tangle of blackcurrant bushes. This is startlingly green, almost astringent, in the opening and then the roses appear ? fresh and vivid and beautiful. You can smell the wet earth of the riverbank and the berries weighing down the branches and the older petals that have fallen to the ground. The name translates as?Shadow in the Water??, and appropriately, there is a hint of melancholy here, a touch of the bittersweet. However, there is also a rejuvenating freshness ? perhaps the riverside garden is where we go to recover from heartbreak. This is a truly original fragrance ? and an utterly beautiful one.
