Classic fougere accord
Amongst the perfumes that have been launched recently, one that stands out is Eau de Minthe by Diptyque. This new eau de parfum is an aromatic, spicy, and floral homage to the classical fougere accord. It is a refreshing fragrance that is sure to please vintage shopper’s tastes.
The fougere fragrance family has gone through several evolutions. It started out as a clean, hygienic scent. As the family evolved, it became more leathery, aromatic, and oriental. However, even today, coumarin and oakmoss remain the main ingredients.
The classic fougere accord is made up of geranium, lavender, oakmoss, and moss. These ingredients are blended with citrus notes. It can also contain floral notes like rose or clary sage. The fougere family can also have a hint of amber.
The new Eau de Minthe by Diptyque reinterprets the fougere accord with the addition of mint. The classic fragrance is a fresh scent that is ideal for the summer months. It is a perfect balance of earthy and floral notes.
The fragrance is inspired by the Greek mythology of Minthe. This myth is a reference to a nymph who was transformed by the god Hades into a leafy herb. Afterwards, she was left to infuse the Underworld with fragrance.
Eau de Minthe by Diptyque is available in a 100 ml Eau de Toilette. It is available for purchase in select boutiques across the country.
Touted as the company’s first foray into the world of fougeres, Cascade Mint eschews the usual suspects for a more ambitious route. A new hybrid mint grown in the Cascades of Oregon was selected for the honors. In a nod to the region’s rich agricultural heritage, Diptyque has created the Eau de Mint Eau de parfum, a refined, earthy elixir. Its signature aqueous formula is derived from an advanced blend of mint and a cocktail of other botanicals, most notably, rose. The Eau de Mint Eau de Parfum is available at select retailers. The company has also announced plans for a pop-up in Los Angeles during the month of May. The company has been in the business of making cool scents for more than 50 years.
The Eau de Mint Eau de parfum’s most notable claim is the presence of its counterpart, Cascade Mint. Its namesake is a fortuitous pairing of a potent mint and a cocktail of other botanicals, the latter of which is the more noteworthy. The Cascade mint is a worthy competitor in the Eau de Mint Eau de Parfum fraternity, if not the most interesting member of the pack. With its sleek glass bottle, the aqueous formula is sure to impress even the most discerning connoisseur. The Eau de Mint Eau De Parfum is available at Diptyque boutiques nationwide and online.

It is a perfect balance of florals, and is perfect for spring or summer. It also has a masculine edge, but is not overpowering.
