In these gray, seemingly infinite days of January, what higher than to take a seat again and immerse ourselves within the olfactory fantastic thing about Diptyque’s brand new limited edition collection of Do Son? Much more so now they’ve launched a stunning brief movie to accompany the launch…
‘Alongside the shores of the ocean, plunge into the childhood recollections of Yves Coueslant, one of many Maison’s founders. From this small seaside pagoda, the perfume of tuberoses introduced again by his mom from the flower market electrifies the senses and transports coronary heart and thoughts.’
And what a perfume Do Son is. Even earlier tuberose naysayers (like me!) have fallen for it, this tender portrait of scent recollections bottled in fragrance kind. Inviting us to ‘plunge into the childhood recollections’ of Coueslant, the animated movie takes us away from gloom and doom, straight to the ocean shore in Vietnam, the place balmy air and intoxicating scents lap at our senses. Actually, the timing of this Do Son resurgence couldn’t be higher.
So, what does Do Son scent like? Right here’s my overview, on smelling it once more at their fantastically bijou Brook Road retailer:
Do Son feels lusciously contemporary with a rising humidity, like strolling right into a scorching home stuffed with just-watered unique blooms, early within the morning earlier than their headiness erupts. There’s a salted breeziness to it that’s all waft-y silk kaftan walks on the seaside earlier than breakfast, naked toes on heat sand, then ankle deep within the sea and staring on the horizon, blissfully.
If in case you have a bottle at hand, why not spritz some on as you watch the brief movie and put together to flee for some time, inside this tender and emotionally resonant portrayal…?

Should you’re craving to get away and already dreaming of holidays, you’re definitely not alone. Should you’ve but to expertise the scent of Do Son for your self, now is a superb time to hunt it out for olfactory escapism.
