The French fragrance brand Diptyque began in 1961, when the founders opened the original boutique shop at 34 Saint-Germain Boulevard. Founded by friends Christiane Montarde-Gautrot, Yves Coueslant, and Desmond Knox-Leet, Diptyque began as a way for the three creatives to pursue and spread their interests by selling objects, art, and textiles discovered and collected through years of international travel. Since its debut into the realm of fragrance, Diptyque has become widely recognized for its evocative scent formulas, often inspired by the travels of the brand’s creators, rendered through candles, eau de parfums, eau de toilettes, diffusers, and more. As distinct as its scents, Diptyque’s elegant design language sees oval-shaped logos adorned with its signature typeface and unique graphic depictions of each scent. Diptyque creates products that embody a precise attention to detail and an inspired curiosity for beauty and craft.
