A surprisingly bright and sparkly take on a modern rose chypre. Bright with pink pepper and bergamot but grounded with in wonderfully damp patchouli, the rose in Eau Capitale evokes the kind freshly bloomed after the first rain of spring. It’s green, bright, and full of optimism and generosity. Good vibes, lots of patchouli, and the kind of rose that Diptque always does so well..what’s not to love? Many compare this cent to Frederic Malle’s Portrait of a Lady, but make no mistake, this stands on its own merit. Eau Capitale is too green, outdoorsy, and youthful to be compared to Portrait of a Lady.
