Hi Posse! I’ve been waiting for you all to get some warmer weather so we could talk about this beautiful green floral fragrance. My sample came as a GWP from my last First In Fragrance order. DO NOT talk to me about their updated site! What a shit show. I can’t find ANYTHING there anymore. Anyway, Fleur Diamantine is a fantastic name for a fragrance. Kudos to Maison Crivelli for picking a title that matches the fragrance so perfectly.
Fleur Diamantine by Maison Crivelli
Bertrand Duchaufour 2018
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Saffron, Mint, Neroli, Jasmine, Moss
Totally unexpected opening. The mint and saffron are like green walls encasing the white flowers. It’s cool and dewy, like a florists fridge. It’s walking through the park at dawn after rain. Crystal clear blue skies and the whisper of snow. Have you ever picked peonies at dawn in the fog? All these things and a dozen more are running through my head as I wear Fleur Diamantine.
This is beautiful and unusual. Imagine if those simple floral Coach, Tocca or L’Occitane fragrances were suddenly made with the best possible ingredients and given a Duchaufour spin? Instead of simple, suddenly it’s complex, intriguing and has a wonderful story. It now changes through it’s life and powers this lovely sheer/hefty fresh green floral prettiness. While not smelling like them Fleur Diamantine has the personality of sparkling lilacs.
I’m not sure if Fleur Diamantine will be the kind of thing that hard core perfumistas will be after. Maybe if you love Malle’s En Passant or Lutens Bas de Soie then this will strike a fancy in your heart. It’s definitely worth a sniff though.
Leaning traditionally feminine, but totally not. I love the softly noticeable projection and longevity is quite good for something so ephemeral. A perfect warm weather fragrance. So cool and reserved, yet beautiful.
Can you see yourself trying Fleur Diamantine?
