When a brand as synonymous with niche fragrance as Diptyque decides to create a scent celebrating the city of Paris, the possibilities are almost overwhelming. What kind of scent could possibly capture the entirety of the rich, multi-textured relationship between The City of Lights and the house of Diptyque? But of course, there actually is a perfect answer- the chypre, iconic amongst perfume styles, a legendary accord with a thousand facets. But with the classic chypre so instantly identifiable- bergamot, rose, jasmine, patchouli, oakmoss- it's incumbent on any re-interpretation to bring something new and unique to the proceedings. Thus, Eau Capitale is a chypre both respectful of tradition, and yet uniquely and romantically modern- a dynamic new study of balance and contrast featuring a fresh yet timeless take on the beloved style. It still boats a lively citrus opening, but with a twist- an especially green "vert de bergamote" of pronounced energy, paired with a burst of pink peppercorn, unique to the chypre style, which gives a cool, sparkling opening of notable modernity. The heart has a classic rose presence, but utilizing three distinctive expressions of Damascene rose: an essence, an absolute, and a concentrate, for a truly multifaceted and complex floral experience. And finally, in place of the traditional oakmoss base, a patchouli "coeur, " a fractional extract with a brighter character than traditional patchouli, which closes us on an invigorating and modern high. Bright, fresh, romantic, and nuanced, Eau Capitale is a dynamic new chypre that proves that there's still ample life left in the classics- a fitting tribute to Paris if ever there was one.
