There are items that we like, and there are items that we love. There are items we collectively laugh over, bond over, swoon over, and there are definitely pieces we are singularly obsessed with. We have decided to dedicate a weekly declaration of love to particular fashion and beauty items that may not forever be iconic or relevant, but are currently making us feel some type of way. Enjoy the latest obsessions of our editorial team. Welcome to Fräulein’s Crush!

In our 8th installment, our graphic designer Noé Cassi is giving us his current obsession.

Noé is the quirky eccentric in the office who loves to tell stories and has the gift of the gab!
His stories about either weird dates he had or fun things he experienced in Berlin keeps the office busy. Therefore it’s no surprise that he shares yet another one of his stories in this article. Only him knows if there’s maybe more than one crush between the lines…

“It’s 10 am. I am waking up after a night with a date. It’s Sunday morning in Berlin. The birds are twittering and the sun is shining through the curtains like they don’t exist. My date finally extracts himself from under the blankets and heads toward the shower. I close my eyes and open them again to him standing in his room. He’s wearing nothing but a blue towel around his small waist, making him look like a mermaid. I ask him “What are you doing?” He replies “I don’t know what perfume to wear today.”

Taking a closer look at the shelf in front of him, I see a selection of elegant bottles with the words “Dyptique Paris” in a cameo-like crest. He takes a bottle of “Eau de Rose”, sprays almost a nothingness, and I’m intrigued. Why would he choose to wear this one today? Why not another one? What made him choose?

He begins an explanation:
“You must change your “Dyptique” Eau de Toilette with your mood. It’s an orchestra. You can mix and match or go with simply one tone. If you have any meetings of high caliber for work, you need to smell powerful and sexual. I usually go straight to “L’Eau Du 34” which is a mix of natural scents that leaves everyone wondering. A hangover day? “Vetyverio” will give you those comforting and cozy vibes. A date? Say no more. “Do Son” and its fresh-cut-flowers. You want to feel the most yourself, you want to feel fresh, you want to feel confident, and you want to feel romantic.“L’ombre dans l’Eau” is my sad and vulnerable scent. These flowery kicks makes me feel like the world can’t see my inner limbo. I feel most powerful with “Eau Duelle.” I wear this on the days where I want to kick ass and make money. The sweetness of the vanilla and the kicks of the spices on your side will make you achieve greatness. And for a woody smell that is super relaxing, “Eau De Lierre” is my yoga. Finally, “Eau Rose,” which is perfect to fully ignite your softer senses. It is memorable and addictive.”


He just had almost described the entirety of his selection, not by scent necessarily, but by mood and emotion. I have already begun a Diptyque collection of my own, my own little luxury. What about you?
