Spending the last few days with Dupetit's samples....there is a clear favorite . And some , I don't care for .
*Full disclaimer - Dupetit sent me all these samples !*
The packaging is simple , and it reads
" Since 1989 Dupetit has been devoted to the creation of 100% natural , vegan and 'Agreco - certified ' organic perfumes . "
For more information , go to the website :
plus watch for my interview with him later this week ...
Samples with names like Foin Coupe , Eau de Dupetit , Indiene , an unexpected Vanilla , a Chypre , Fougere , White Lily and Magnolia : there is a favorite here for everyone .
Let's start with White Lily....my expectations are low , ( I really don't want to be disappointed , after loving the Musk NR 5 so much ! )...remember I immediately wanted to buy a full bottle of the Musk NR 5 !!
Anyway , usually lily is too shrill on my skin . Dupetit White Lily is a brilliant white yet complex thing that leaps from the vial- buttery , creamy , full of exuberance and fun . Really pretty !
I will have more to say about this one .
clove blossoms , ylang , tagetes , tonka , Tuberose , Ceylon muskat , Iris , Jasmine
Next , Vetiver , which I approached with even more trepidation....you know my intolerance for vetiver . This is citrus-y lemony vetiver , which gets a little woodier , and not harsh .
agrumen , lemon , orange blossom , ylang , spices , vetiver , Jasmine , Iris
Last up for today , Foin Coupe , which is a lovely name isn't it and what does it mean ? Translated from French as new mown hay ( I should have known that...) Foin Coupe is green and juicy and sunny .
acacia , Rose , tonka absolute , galbanum , lavender , spices , Jasmine , Patchouli
We have not met , but Alfredo Dupetit - Bernardi has been answering my questions via-email , so I feel like I'm getting to know him . Though his English is charming and excellent , he asked me to 'fix it a little ", otherwise the answers are his , the questions are mine . Stay tuned this week for our discussion , more reviews ( can you guess my favorite ? ) and another giveaway of Musk NR 5 .
