Diptyque Eau Rose Roll On

I couldn’t always comfortably dare to recommend perfume as a gift when scent is such a personal matter, but I think you would be on fairly safe ground offering this as a present.
 
Rose is a commonly adored fragrance, familiar and classic but executed here as a delicious fruity infusion with notes of blackberry, bergamot and lychee, all delivered in Diptyque’s distinctive elegant packaging.

 

Perfume is one of the areas in cosmetics where it really doesn’t pay to scrimp on price. That this is a dinky 20ml affair is what makes it such an ideal and affordable present; the lure of a brief flirtation rather than a forced marriage to a never ending bottle. It’s a scent that is light enough to suit generous reapplication and is thus perfect for the handbag-friendly rollerball. A treat for fragrance-fledglings and perfume geeks alike.
