50 years after Diptyque’s creation, the essence and spirit of 34 boulevard Saint-Germain has been “bottled” with technological expertise, giving rise to this emblematic collection. Using only natural ingredients when composing fragrances, the result of Diptyque’s scents are pure and natural, complex and intriguing.

Diptyque’s iconic oval logo mimics the shape of an 18th-century medallion, a pattern found on the Prétorien fabric designed by Desmond Knox-Leet in 1963. Each scent bares the same oval badge, and is fitted with signature dancing letters.

In order to unleash the perfect effect, each candle is a blend of first-class waxes specifically amalgamated and assessed when hot and cold by wax experts. Every scent is blended to reach the right melting temperature. Candles contain 8 to 9 mineral waxes, and on occasion a few plant-based waxes to enhance them.
