diptyque Paris was founded in 1961 by three friends who had been trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1963 Diptyque started producing a series of scented candles which soon gained world-wide fame. Packaged in an art deco design with elegant lettering and stylish drawings, this design provides the unmistakable hallmark of diptyque home and personal fragrances.
An Elegant Flourish
A precious and exclusive edition of L'Eau Papier, just for the holiday season.
The illustration on the bottle has been revised in gold, with a transparent view that affords a glimpse of the nuances created by ink on paper.
To celebrate the holiday season, Diptyque is showcasing the magic of the flame in a unique manner. In the form of a calligram inspired by the poetic definition found in the Encyclopédie des Lumières, "flame" becomes the central motif of a special collection.
As ink soaks into a sheet of white paper, shadows emerge. Worlds are invented. L'Eau Papier celebrates the power of the imagination – that moment, suspended in time, when ink, paper and the hand become one. An encounter made perfume, plunging us into the heart of musk and its multiple facets. Musk evolves, changes, expresses itself over time and from one skin to another, just as ink saturates paper, assuming its texture to conjure up dreams and images. In L'Eau Papier, white musks are delicately faceted by an accord of rice steam, evoking the grain of the paper. To these are added luminous notes of mimosa, while a backdrop of blonde wood tones roots L'Eau Papier in the material itself. In this Eau de Toilette, the perfumer used Grasse Mimosa, a variety that has been cultivated since 1865. Its yellow flowers bloom in February on the hills around the town of Grasse, offering a stunning sight scented with sunny, floral and honeyed notes.
