the smell I would describe as orange syrup that is very warm and cloyingly sweet.
Not that special I think

This one takes a while to settle down and a while to adjust on your skin, then you get it: a clean and comforting bitter orange (more on the candied side I'd say) mixed with the ever-fascinating lavender and infused with musk to give it consistency. The result is a comfy Orange popsicle in an undistinguishable herbaceous background. To my nose, although the notes are quite different, the fragrance evolves to a more sophisticated sister of Hypnotic Poison, fortunately without that loud, ambiguous, "Come hither and possess me, whoever you are" harloty halo I've always got from Dior's creation.

Philosykos sparked my love for all things Dyptique, but there are many scents in the line that just don't suit my chemistry. I wore the former to death, and wanted a replacement which had a similar uniqueness. I am trying Elide again after it has been in my dark vault for fumes I've gone off and recycle at a later date. This scent is quite unique, I do like it, but it's strange intensity is an acquired taste and keeps me from loving it. I do like that its a warm comforting scent, tips to the masculine but is balanced by the spicy gourmandy edge, which makes it a keeper for me. Not sure if I would buy it again as I only wear it occasionally.

This would appeal to someone who liked SL Ambre Sultan. This is one of those mincemeat pie, sugared almonds, candied citron, and spice scents. It smells richly gourmand on me, and so far the sillage is powerful and it is long-lasting. It is sweet in a honeyed, languid way, rather than a saccharine overload. I doubt I would buy it again, as it does not appeal to my taste. But I could see the charm it might have for others.

If I sniffed this blind, I would have thought it was a new fragrance by "Clean" -- I get orange creamsicle, something slightly green/sharp...grass?, and fabric softener. The end result on my skin just smells like soap -- it's like I didn't even put any perfume on! It's not bad, but it's definitely forgettable.

This is a nice scent, as far as these things go. Starts off with orange, but not a tart, sour orange. Then it morphs into something with an amber or vanilla creaminess and then...poof! It's gone! Lousy staying power.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
This fragrance is clean and sweet. I'm smelling violet, powder, maybe vanilla. It's quite faint. After an hour or so, I'm getting nothing. Absolutely no staying power. Yet again, Diptyque disappoints.

I like the smell of most of the scents in the Diptyque line even if there are some that I prefer as candles rather than as fragrances to wear. My exptectations for Eau d'Elide were high given this and the fact that the notes sounded so promising - bitter orange, lavender, aromatic shrubs and musk. Bitter orange is one of my favorite notes, aromatic shrubs and musk sounded excellent and although lavender doesn't always work for me, I remain open. For a brief, happy moment at the beginning I thought that this could be up there with FM's Bigarade Concentree in my Bitter Orange Hall of Fame. However, within minutes I realized this was not meant to be. Eau d'Elide rapidly degenerated into a rather musty, murky herbal range scent with no clear sense of direction. Reminded me a bit of a more herbal, unsweet version of Antica Farmacista's Vaniglia Bourbon Mandarino. Instead of the Bitter Orange Hall of Fame this gets placed into the "Good Notes Gone Bad Hall of Infamy." Not a Diptyque I want for either house or body.

I really wanted to love this scent, but sadly, it does not work on me. It starts with a very sweet and fake orange (with a touch of sweet cream hiding in the background) and never really lets up. When I realized that it reminded me of baby aspirin, I had to wash it off. If you're looking for an orange scent, I'd suggest Hermes Eau D'Orange Verte or Frederic Malle Cologne Bigarade.

An immensely sexy, spiced blend. A light background of orange and vanilla infused with cinnamon-y spices. Fortunately, it doesn't go the Christmas/holiday route the way most orange-cinnamon blends might be expected to do -- instead, this is light, playful and intriguing.

This scent is okay, but not one I would wear too often. It's undeniably bitter orange, and probably more of an 'orange' scent than any other fragrance out there except Banana Republic's 'M' for men.

Eau d'Élide is an aromatic scent with bitter orange and lavender notes. It has a "dark" quality I love.

An odd fragrance to rate... and for some reason I think I love it. Not much staying power, but I do get all the scents it claims-- bitter orange, lavender, etc, and I too get a brown sugary kind of smell. But definitely not too sweet. Not sure if I'll buy it again, but it is definitely unique, which I like.

bitter orange, musk, aromatic shrubs, lavender. The Bitter orange fiend in me (I'm an expert, as I grew up with a tree next to my bedroom window that still stands to this day) could barely get a hint of this note.Elide is a pseudo-citrus that turns warm upon dry down. Definitely not my favorite Diptyque or the most remarkable offering of the line.

This is one of my favourite Diptyque fragrances. I generally do not like citrusy scents - but this one is warm and earthy. It smells of Bitter orange, dried lavender and brown sugar to me. And it must agree with my chemistry as it lasts all day and then some. Will buy again.

Hm...I definitely got the bitter orange, which is what made me thought I'd like it in the first place (I'm into a lot of citrus fragrances). It's sort of like bitter marmalade meets minty pine and a little spice. It is a little weird, but at the same time...not terribly remarkable! There are so many other fragrances out there that I really love, that I don't plan to bother further with this one.
