To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Diptyque launches an exclusive collection that highlights its skills as a perfumer. The three closest perfumers of the house had carte blanche to create an ephemeral collection with great olfactory and creative freedom! Be tempted by the Curiosité scented candle by Olivia Giacobetti, Eau Mage eau de toilette by Fabrice Pellegrin and multi-use perfumed water Eau Particulière by Olivier Pescheux.
Eau Mage ~ "Limited Edition created by [perfumer] Fabrice Pellegrin. A note built in total contrast, like the graphic identity of the brand where black and white combine.Special finish on the EDT bottle: black shaded lacquered. A simple accord built around ambroxan, green mandarin, cashmeran and cumin. A trace of rose oxide, vibrant, suggestive of the silver décor of the case. A touch of patchouli and labdanum, darker more subdued tones." In 50 ml Eau de Toilette, $120.
Eau Particulière (shown) ~ "Limited Edition created by [perfumer] Oilivier Pescheux [sic]. A fresh enveloping fragrance built around a floral green accord. Vintage glass bottle with a screw cap and a bulb atomizer aside. Sweetness is provided by rose and musks, freshness by mint." In 240 ml Body & Home Spray, $135.
Curiosités scented candle ~ "Limited Edition created by [perfumer] Olivia Giacobetti. Fragrance inspired by Desmond Knox-Leet’s [note: one of Diptyque's founders] workshop, a real curiosity shop. White ceramic jar. Engraving inside the oval inspired by a drawing of Desmond Know-Leet made during its graphic research around the diptyque pyramidal logo [sic & sic]. A woody note mixed with the fragrance of charcoal, paper, amber and old wood." $80.
