Diptyque Eau Capitale Perfume Review
Diptyque Eau Capitale Fragrance Assessment

Diptyque Eau Capitale Eau de Parfum is a lighter, barely-in-bloom rose with leafy greens and light-weight, woody and earthy tones. It was primarily a rose and patchouli scent with a greener, more energizing rose being the dominant notice till deep into growth the place the patchouli confirmed up extra noticeably within the drydown. These are the notes:

  • high notes: pink pepper, bergamot
  • coronary heart notes: rose
  • base notes: patchouli

It opened with mushy, flippantly jammy rose with an effervescent citrus that morphed into an fragrant, recent rose with tender inexperienced leaves within the early morning with damp soil beneath the shrub. The rose was lifted by the peppery and inexperienced notes and was recent reasonably than jammy, regardless of that opening second of sweetness.

The event was extra linear, so for probably the most half, what was skilled after the primary quarter-hour was very a lot the rest of the perfume. I discovered that the inexperienced attribute waxed and waned over time earlier than changing into tougher to detect on the fourth hour, which was when the patchouli got here ahead extra and met with the recent rose.


For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case. 

I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be aware of when a assessment was made, e.g. a assessment from 2010 could not replicate what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.


It lasted for six hours till it was a skin-scent and about 10 hours earlier than it was fairly troublesome to detect on my pores and skin. It had reasonable sillage for the primary three hours and projected readily above my wrist for the primary 4 hours.

Private Ideas

It’s a perfume that earns lots of comparisons to Frederic Malle’s Portrait of a Girl, which I might say is a darker, way more intense and nuanced perfume–extra to it, merely–whereas Eau Capitale is lighter, more energizing, and extra linear. I personally discovered Portrait of a Girl to have totally an excessive amount of projection and sillage that one thing like Eau Capitale would swimsuit me higher from that perspective, however Eau Capitale lacks the smoky, woody facets of Portrait of a Girl, so they’re undoubtedly not that comparable in observe.
