Fragrance family: woody
Key notes: sandalwood, cedar, cypress, myrtle
Tam Dao is one of Diptyque’s reigning best sellers, but I will say it’s a wild card in that you will definitely really like it or you definitely really won’t. Like Philosykos, it’s classified as “woody,” but where Philosykos has a subtle undercurrent of juicy fruitiness, Tam Dao is a modern take on a classic warm and woody perfume. It’s heavy on the sandalwood and cedar, so if that’s not your vibe, you’ve been forewarned. That said, I’m not typically a huge fan of woody scents, but this one has slowly but surely completely won me over.
