Ugh it’s like the kiss of death when you love a fragrance but it simply doesn’t work with your body chemistry and your skin proceeds to suck up all that delightful scent. I replenished my stock of Diptyque Oyédo on Friday night because I was in need of some SERIOUS retail therapy and I couldn’t help but think to myself how I wish they’d put out a parfum formulation because the EDT simply doesn’t cut it for me.
Does your favorite fragrance not last on you?
Oyédo is a tangy blend of lemon and orange with a mix of green notes but for me it’s all about Pez! It just smells like Pez candy to me and on my skin it goes very sweet. Lime, orange, lemon, and a certain sweetness plays with the notes on Oyédo and creates a very pretty fragrance. My body chemistry just doesn’t love it but I get a lot of compliments when I wear it but typically that’s within the first hour of misting because after an hour it is gone.
If you’re dishing out $125 for a fragrance you want it to last a hell of a lot longer than 60 minutes (hell sometimes it’s gone within 30 minutes).
None the less Oyédo remains one of my top Diptyque fragrances and I continue to buy it! It’s just a shame my body chemistry fails to work with it.
There are any number of fragrances I love but don’t last on me! It’s such sadness when you really love a blend but it fades into the great abyss soon after after application.
What are some of your favorite fragrances that simply do not last or work with your body chemistry?
