For a lot of people, Diptyque makes the quintessential “status candle” — their entire product line is storied, French, and beautifully packaged. Of course, it all smells pretty fantastic, too. Tam Dao is a velvety, milky scent of sandalwood cooled with green cypress and myrtle, inspired by one of the founder's childhoods spent in Mysore, India. And while a lot of eaux de parfum are just more concentrated versions of eaux de toilette, Diptyque actually tweaks the balance of the notes to give the scent a richer, more long-lasting dimension. This means the two formulations work well in tandem... a lot of us like the EDT for daytime and the EDP for evening, but fly your own kite!
