Breathtaking. I currently have a mini-obsession with Diptyque going on right now and this scent is why! I used to think that Philosykos was my one true love, but then I met 34 Blvd. Saint Germain. I was so intrigued by Diptyque's description of the scent as an amalgam of the house's most iconic scents that I bought it without first sampling it (I don't have a Diptyque counter near me, so I really have to rely upon my own imagination) and my sole regret is that I waited a full year to do so. Just as described, this scent is multi-layered and complex, and very, very sexy. Some may think that it's just a blend of the house's most popular scents and in some ways, that's true, but it's so much more than that. Initially, I wasn't that taken by it as I first found it to be almost too much wood and resin, but this is a scent that takes time to develop. Altogether, I get fruit, spice, green, and floral, slowly over time. On its own, it's fantastic, but layered with your favorite Diptyque scent, it's incredible. The packaging is also divine. Lasts all day on me, which is surprising for an EdT. I can't wait to try the white-capped, Spring version of this scent, which is supposed to be greener, and I love green. A must-have.

This scent is inspired by Diptyques original store in Paris, where many perfumes have seeped into the wood and created a unique fragrance. And this is exactly that, a complex and deep perfume with many layers. Its sweet, woody and a tad musky. For me it goes on strong and lasts throughout the day, it becomes slightly sweeter as time goes on but I can still get the wood and musk. I really love this perfume since it smells rich but without the old lady effect some other high end perfumes have. I think this is a timeless and ageless scent. It is my go to perfume when in doubt. It is a little heavy for spring and summer but to each their own! The bottle is also quite nice, I like the magentic cap and the cool wick like design in the bottle. Only thing is it is a nice quality bottle but heavy, so not great for travel.

This is just what I was looking for now that winter is upon us - a warm, woodsy scent that isn't too heavy or masculine. You would think that sort of thing would be easy to find, but I found during testing that so many woody fragrances boil down to an overload of ISO E Super and wind up smelling the same. This is more complex and subtle. Really very pretty, it feels more feminine to me, and quite distinctive. No one note dominates. It reminds me of little solid drawer sachets my mother had when I was a child... probably a cedar note that's doing that. It has a light greenness to it and a touch of floral freshness, but only if you're really looking for it. It smells like the sort of scent you want mingling with your woolens, which is just what I want for this time of year.ETA - I wanted to add an additional note as I wear this again and wrap my nose around it a little more. I do get a vegetal tuberose, and blended with the other notes the overall impression is of a lightly floral leather chypre. I am reminded of SL Daim Blond and occasionally the original (vintage) Miss Dior. And now I like it even more!

This is my current favourite fragrance. Its a perfect winter scent, as another reviewer said, it was designed to smell like the shop in Paris and having been there I have to say it really does smell like that. I find it quite a woody smell but there is definitely floral notes in there. I know the packaging shouldn't matter but the bottle is really classy looking and looks lovely on the shelf!! This fragrance is very long lasting - much better than any other fragrances I own. I can still smell it 12 hours after I have applied it.
