To my nose, Diptyque Eau des Sens Hair Mist has a cologne element – very crisp, fresh and all things summer. I am such a sucker for a hair mist I have to admit although I can’t see that it does your hair any good exactly. But, the idea of swishing my hair and getting a little waft of orange blossom sits very well with me. Knowing my luck, there would be a wasp in it or something…
Notes for Eau des Sens which launched as a fragrance in 2016 are orange blossom, angelica root and patchouli with a dash of juniper berry. To be honest, it doesn’t smell that complicated to me – it’s even quite hard to extract the orange blossom initially, although it does come through later, never mind the spices, but what it does smell is clean. And that’s always a bonus for hair! So, while I am not at all tempted by this on my skin, it is something of an enhancer on hair – I like it for that and the notion that on a sweltering hot day hair smells fresh. I note from the site that Diptyque suggest that after washing, you rinse your hair in cold water to help the fragrance to last longer. I suggest you don’t do this (I once fell for it when it was offered to me as a ‘shine rinse’ in France – I couldn’t have been more excited to have access to this French secret until my head was doused in freezing water) because it’s just a very uncomfortable thing. Just stay comfortable and spritz in a bit more perfume if you think you need more last.
The brush, by the way, is from Daniel Galvin Junior (HERE) and it’s designed to curve to your head so you give yourself a good massage each time you tend to your tresses. Bearing in mind that scalp circulation is crucial to healthy follicles, it’s definitely a plus. It’s also got anti-bacterial and anti-static properties and double dipped argan oil tips! It’s £30 which I must admit was a shock, but if you have fine hair, prone to static and like a volumising effect (from the second curve that gives strands a lift) definitely take a look.
Eau des Sens is £36 HERE.
