Diptyque’s Eau Duelle was first featured on this blog on November 16, 2020 in a collage called Shopping in Paris. I believe in investments, but at 115 USD for a 50 ml bottle, I kept delaying my purchase …that is until now.
I recently came across Scent Split, a company that decants luxury scents into 1, 2, 5, and 9 ml bottles. Unfamiliar with the name, I scoured the internet for proof of the company’s legitimacy. The logo, white, cursive text against a black background, was reminiscent of the one Tom Carnese created in 1973 for Saks Fifth Avenue. A semi-annoying pop-up in the lower left corner announced recent sales.
After watching a few vlogger reviews (all positive) on YouTube, I felt comfortable placing my first order. The checkout interface was so user-friendly that I gladly paid an extra 98 cents for shipping protection. The 9 ml bottle of Eau Duelle arrived encased generously in bubble wrap in a small padded mailer.
The glass bottle itself lends itself to travel and looks elegant when displayed on a tray.
