DIPTYQUE

Three friends – interior designer Christiane Gautrot, painter Desmond Knox-Leet and theatre director Yves Coueslant -came together back in the ‘60s to open their first boutique on Paris’ 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain, where the creatives offeredsoft furnishings and traditional English perfumes that were little known in France during that period. The iconic Oval came about after Desmond designed a patternfound of the Pretorien fabric in 1963, and five years later, diptyque composed its first eau de toilette, L’Eau. Today, the Parisian label challenges conventional perfumery with its stable of scented bougies, solid perfumes, diffusers and fragrances.
