Launched in 1979 Dioressence was a masterwork by Guy Robert. From the first time I smelled Dioressence, I knew resistance would be futile – I loved it. 
Over the years it has been reformulated many times, and the current version is, for me, still so FBW.

Nose-tickling aldehydes, with orange and rose are at the opening, along with patchouli, just for drama giving the first whiff of Dioressence real impact. A true chypre, it moves to a floral heart based on lush rose and geranium warmed with spicy cinnamon. All of this rests on an amber/patchouli base that gives it a warm, mellow drydown.

It makes me happy to wear it and when I do I get lots of compliments. Yep, it’s a fave and I’ve put it on my desert island list.
