Born from Creative Collaboration
In 1961, three friends from l’Ecole des Beaux Arts decided to open a store in Paris on 34 boulevard Saint-Germain to display and sell their own plain and print soft furnishings. Here, they also gave their customers the opportunity to discover the biggest names in traditional English perfumes, then little known in France. In 1963, diptyque Paris started producing a series of scented candles which soon gained worldwide recognition and launched their first eau de toilette in 1968. For 40 years, diptyque has been developing a sophisticated collection of personal fragrances giving it a clear, distinctive signature.

The Iconic Oval
The oval labels echo the shape of an 18th-century medallion, a pattern found on the Prétorien fabric designed by Desmond Knox-Leet in 1963. It is an emblematic shape, perpetually reinvented and found on all products made by diptyque.
“Diptyque exalts the beauty of everyday life and the work of master craftsmen”
