I hadn't tried anything truly awful yet in 2010, so I guess it was overdue. L'Eau Trois smells like some sort of horrific herbal bathroom cleaner, or maybe wound antiseptic. Nasty stuff. I can't believe this is still in rotation by Diptyque. They make lots of other wonderful fragrances, but this one is a bomb.

The reviews were so scary that I started by applying some to a paper towel, just in case. Detecting no urine, I applied some to my skin. After a brief doctor's-office accord, it smelled as if I'd crushed some dusty herbs and rubbed them on my wrist. I'm betting that's the effect they were going for. But then it became BO. Not the acrid BO of someone who doesn't wash. Instead, imagine that you take your morning shower, then realize while you're at work that you forgot to put on deodorant. There's no place nearby to buy some on your lunch break. You skulk around, arms clamped to sides, for the remainder of the day, until your lengthy commute home on a bus on which the air conditioner has broken down. The drydown of L'Eau Trois captures that BO perfectly.

Periodically a fragrance will come along that makes me just sit back in awe, totally impressed that something like it could have been created. Sometimes the awe and sense of being impressed are because the fragrance is so amazingly wonderful. Sometimes, however, it's because it's so astonishingly unattractive. I'm afraid L' Eau Trois fits into this latter category. I definitely get the urinal vibe mentioned in the reviews below. Mystifyingly bad.

Oh My G_D what a stink. I almost feel ashamed to insult this fragrance since I am a HUGE Diptique fan(Philosykos, Opone, Tam Dao and L'Ombre Dans)and some others. This truely smells like a dirty Macy's bathroom stahl. My poor husband almost threw up. He made me wash it off. I mean this smells wretched. I can't imagine anyone wanting to wear this fragrance. They should really discontinue this one. For the love of Diptique.

okay, I got these notes easily enough:
35% stinky armpit
all mingled in together. ( stinky armpit is sadly the predominant note...)

Got this as a free sample. On me this stuff smells like pure frankincense. Which is not necessarily a bad thing (I love frankincense), just kind of uninteresting. Funny since I don't believe this perfume contains any! Anyway, L' Eau Trois doesn't wow me.

I get the urinesque note and that's about it. I smell somebody's outhouse. I smell forays into the woods with my brother who went everywhere and all the time, just to spite me with the simplicity of "going". I smell one of those bathrooms at camp that has a toilet with a major run-over problem, and the floors are soaked and the toilet paper sits around in shredded globs waiting to cling to your bare foot. ew
.....Edited 2 weeks later: I have gotten a different sample of this same fragrance and this one has a lot more going on in it (?) I still have the 1st sample, so this is not an indication of early insanity, this time...yet. The 2nd sample smells like food...cumin and other middle eastern spices, and woods. There is also the scent of urine, but it is buried. Are there two different scents? Is one old? With the first batch did someone leave out the spices while tossing it together at the perfumers kitchen counter?

RIS. the description was so enticing. went on kind of oily, had a sharp smell at first-hard for me to detect any notes-maybe woodsy, distant pine? kind of musty. perhaps it needs time to "build"? fragrance was totally gone within an hour, :(

I agree with squirrelgirl - this is a lovely fragrance. Almost antique in a way - warm, dusty and sweet but not too heavy either. It is unique, sophisticated and mysterious. Love it. Update - I went to the British Museum for the first time, and this fragrance smells exactly like the book room! It even has the dusty hint of licorice.

Oh dear-I feel awkward "defending" this scent after it's been panned so totally! (Cedar chips...cage lining? LOL!)
For me, this scent summons up memories, and desires-it's a complex scent-difficult to describe accurately...deep and smoky, yet spiked with touches of fresh, sharp green.
What I love is that this scent is not likely to become - or follow - a trend - there's something timeless and unique about it.
It recalls browses through antique shops on summer days, sunlit columns of dust falling on stacks of leather bound books, strolls through empty churches-doors open to outside gardens, wooden pews, heavy velvet drapery...a somber, yet mellow mood-just a touch of melancholy...
The lovely bottle-like all of the Diptyque scents - is covetable all for itself! Simple, heavy, square glass, topped with brushed metal-and a label with quirky, handdrawn illustration and typography-no less should be expected by perfumers who are also graphic designers!
I feel bookish, wise, and just a little bit mysterious wearing it, and love having the bottle on my 40's Moderne dresser!

Diana's review says all that needs to be said about this one. Absolutely disgusting (I won't even call it a fragrance). What were they thinking and do they actually sell any of this? I bet this is dropped from their line of fragrances very soon. Are these the same people that made the wonderful Philosykos and Olene???
UGH!! I get nauseous even thinking about trying it again.

Shrubbery in a bottle! L'Eau Trois smells, unfortunately, just like its description in the Aedes catalog: 'Myrrh, myrtle, oregano, pine, laurel, thyme, rosemary. The deep scent of aromatic shrubs from mountainous coastline of Greece.'
I wondered what kind of fragrance could me made of these scents, so I ordered a sample. Overall, the scent smells like cedarchips. I smell like my old guinea pig's clean cage. I won't be putting this on skin again, but I'll probably use the sample to enhance the scent of the cedar blocks I pack clothes away with...
