Diamella Fragrance Reviews

I received a sample of this in a swap (thank you, Theevelien!). It's a gentle feminine perfume, with loads of oakmoss but moderate sillage. I don't have much experience with vintages, but I've encountered a similar combination of oakmoss and aldehydes in Miss Dior (the one from the Ninties), even if they are not similar beyond that. Overall a beautiful chypre, suited for everyday use (office safe).

I waited for years to be able to purchase Diamella, an old Yves Rocher discontinued scent described as a Fresh Floral perfume by the H & R Fragrance Guide, a category which includes Diorella, Diorissimo, Eau de Rochas, Estivalia by Puig, Avon's Imari, Factor's Le Jardin, Rocher's Magnolia, Metal by Paco Rabanne, Anais Anais, Cristalle, Lanvin's Clair de Jour, Euforia by Atkinsons, the first Laura Biagiotti, Sergio Soldano, Valentino, Poesie by 4711 Muelhens, Muguet des Bois by Coty, Suzuro by Shiseido, and O de Lancome for women. The H & R Fragrance Guide describes Diamella like this:

Top Notes: Green Note, supported by bergamot, rosewood, fruit note, aldehyde, violet creating an aldehydic green fruity accord

Mid Notes: floral, composed of Rose and Tuberose, supported by orris, jasmine, lily of the valley, and ylangx2

Base Notes: Cedarwood and Moss, supported by sandal, olibanum, musk, benzoin, and amber making a powdery base.

I'm guessing that the wood & moss of the base combined with a top green note may be creating the feeling of a chypre, but Diamella is not strong enough to describe as a chypre, and my guess is that it is Rocher's response to Anais Anais, Cristalle, and Diorella, all of which were trend setters and popular in their day.

I love scents with green top notes but to compare some of these fragrances with Diamella, I'd say that Anais Anais is much more cedary, so much so that I've never warmed to it. I get an ashy pencil-shaving effect from certain types of cedary bases. Cristalle is a sharper colder scent. Where Diorella & Anais Anais have a stronger jasmine aspect to their heart notes, Diamella leans instead toward rose-tuberose. Diamella does not have as much of the oakmoss as Diorella. I can't help but think the name was supposed to evoke Diorella?

Having finally found this scent, I'm trying hard not to use it up to quickly - this is a hardship! Hope this info is helpful.

There is no snow outside this yrar for christmas, so i am sad.. That's why i have put on something classy to get into right mood, something i wood wear during very lateautumn - a good quality chypre. Because it is almost a bed time already, i wanted something quiet, so a have chosen a few fabs of Diamella behind my ears in EDP concentration. I have smelled it many times from the bottle ( i have a regular one with brown plastic lid and also crystsl clear glass lid, just beautiful). I always judged by sniff test that this is a shy woody-floral fragrance. Well, i must agree with those ones who say it is a strong and bold chypre! It starts indeed quiet and at first i couldn't detect almost no scent, but i guess as my skin warmed the scent it started to bloom and develope. It has a very strong and beautiful oak moss in it, the kind of i love in vintage "Madame Rochas", but this one is even more beautiful! It has a real good vintage mossy vibe in the most good way! Adore it! Say whatever you want but vintage Yves Rocher fragrances were of a very good quality!
There is very little of floral notes in here, they are detectable kn the middle stage, beautifully mixed with moss and wood. But moss is the .ost central part of the whole composition! Aldehydes are very shy and appear closer to the drydown, but i don't get anything powdery from here.
Superb and a gem, just like the crystal lid n shape of the gem on my bottle of EDT. I will not sell the otver bottle of EDP and EDT spray i have, i'll keep my precious for my pleasure :)

P.s. i don' t have vintage "tamango", only the parfum/extrait and modern edt which i love both an to me they don't smell anything like "Diamella". I also have vintage "anais anais" in every concentratiln ( parfum/extrait, edp and edt, parfum de toilette concentree) and they do not smell like "diamella" as well. Maybe "diamella" EDT has less oakmoss, but EDP is a bold chypre, nothing oriental, nothing spicy in here. Just a simple good quality chypre.

The review was for vintage EDP splash bottle. I need to check my EDT as well.

Well,I got this parfume from Ebay new in bottle,100ml splash for 10euro only!!What a bargain!The scent is a misterious-powdery one,very elegant,certainly for age 30 plus sofisticated type of lady.The opening is very agressive 30 min floral,after dry-down remains a mixture of floral-woody-misterious something wich lasts 3-5 hours with a good projection and a discrete but very noticeable sillage which turns almost everybody heads...A classic masterpiece indeed wich makes a woman looking more pritty...

It is a beautiful perfume, and I must thank the reviewers below for introducing me to it. I find it a very easy scent to wear, too, surprise, surprise for something so mossy! I use it in the morning, after work, as a pick me up and as a going to bed scent. It is not sharp or strong as one would expect of a mossy chypre, it is soft and wistful. (Perhaps the result of aging? I own a splash bottle) It must include some incense and something resinous, and slightly waxy. But it is not heavy, pretentious or demanding. It is playful, fresh and mysterious...

This was recommended to me by *sophi* who praised the sophisticated character of this vintage scent and compared it to Dioressence. Since I didn't know that either I just grabbed the chance and ordered this.

And she was right! The vintage-formula is something you won't find in this concentration and quality no more. The moss is incredibly strong, vibrant and intense in a way I never expected. Sadly I'm not in a place of my perfume-evolution where I really can enjoy this. I tried other scents with (oak-)moss: IsaBella, Goddess - Hommage a Greta Garbo where the moss coincides with vanilla/spice themes. And even then I can barely tolerate it.

BEsides the flowers there have to be some slight spices in it too, like caraway and orris root. And maybe even something green like galbanum. Would I have to take a bet I would maybe say the flowers go in some direction of peony and rose...

I can't agree with the Oriental Spice-reference since this is a full bodied chypre (not even a chypre-floral), neither to the comparison to AnaisAnais.

I think people who miss the quality of lately changed fragrances of the chypre category should def. try this, since this is still possible to find despite being disc. and leave the new reformulated ones alone.

This is one gem of a scent!! I always wanted to have one, and now I am the proud owner of this!
I remember seeing it in an YR brochure and showing it to a much older neighbour friend and convincing her to order it for herself, since I had smelled it in a sachet, a scented tissue.
It smelled like heaven to me, I so wanted to have one but was only 8-9 years old. My mom did not let me have this because it was expensive and I was too young.
Now I am so happy, I am going to use this very sparingly since its a splash bottle, but so simple and beautiful, just like a diamond. I will pour the scent in a purse spray.
Just like Action described, the scent is indeed very complex. In the beginning its a bit piercing,probably oak moss,but oh my... the drydown is soft, beautiful and alluring. A true gem by Yves Rocher!!!

So I found another perfume that fits the category of Diamella, besides Dioressence, and it is Leonard Tamango!
I would say the vintage Tamango is identical to Diamella. All three perfumes typical Oriental Spicy perfumes that are very dominant!

You are right Iset, this is a really interesting perfume and very hard to get! I got so lucky to have a bodycream of this one as well. It is an incredibly strong perfume too. If i put on the cream it is as putting on the perfume itself!

Yes it arrived and it is quite exquisite!
I would rate it a very complex chypre, family of Dioressence.
Beautiful!

This is an extremely hard to get. Today I am expecting a vintage 1.7 oz after a long search. This perfume is a wonderful chypre, it does remind me of the scent when you walk in a church. It has a spiritual effect in a way.
