The Silk Road
One of the oldest roads in the world, the Silk Road crossed Asia and North Africa on its way to Europe. The precious fabric was carried over thousands of miles along with musk, amber and balsams, perfuming the air with their captivating notes.
Pomander and Wood fire Duo:
A winter evening in Provence
The sweetness of evenings spent huddled by the fire. The smoky accents of wood fire blend with the delicious scents of spices and candied fruits of the traditional thirteen desserts.
Fig tree and Opopanax Duo:
A perfume from Antiquity
The scents of Ancient Rome: filled with the balmy accents of opopanax burned in temples and houses, and the woody, fruity notes of the fig tree held sacred by Romans for its protective powers. Worshipped on the Forum, it symbolized the benevolence of the Roman gods.
Quince and Oak tree Duo:
An autumn afternoon
A harmony of flavors and colors, of yellows and warm browns. With the arrival of autumn, the scents of wood and fruit grow more complex. The powerful smoky, woody accents of the oak tree add spice to the suave, fruity scent of quince.
Duo Hazel tree and Vanilla Duo:
A delicious treat
Lightly roasted hazelnuts, fresh from the oven. Their still-warm praline accents have taken on the caramelized and slightly spicy sweetness of the vanilla pods.
Cinnamon and Tea Duo:
Memory of Desmond
Inspired by the English childhood of Desmond Knox-Leet, one of diptyque’s three founders, this scent recalls the black English tea and spices once shipped from Indian trading posts.
