Some prefer to wear fragrance as a veil; others want a coat of armor. To satisfy this need for either subtlety or strength, perfumers release their potions in different delivery systems. Diptyque just cut the ribbon on their first dabbling in the traditional art of cologne, the most delicate in perfume concentrate. The resulting three L'eaus (des Hesperides, de L'eau, de Neroli)—all more sparkling, herby versions of previously released favorites—linger just long enough to spark up witty conversation, then dash before the repartee gets too deep. My favorite is the L'eau de Neroli, which works well as a cologne—most neroli fragrances in eau de parfum concentration are way too hot and deep, over-saturated and overwrought. This one prances on my aura. $145 each at Diptyque boutiques, Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman.
