01. Secret

And if you look between the lines,

you will discover different worlds. Our founders, Christiane Montadre, Desmond Knox-Leet and Yves Coueslant, loved creating stories and playing with colors and patterns. And for 60 years, we have followed in their footsteps. Always moving forward.

02. Secret

An oval can hide another and another.

At diptyque, we have a wonderful playing field. It’s our oval and a place where we love to make letters dance and create stories. It’s a pattern inspired by our travels to Greece, and a window we share with you, so that you can watch over this magical world and get swept away in daydreams.

Like an olfactory portrait....

Orphéon takes you back to the environment of an emblematic place in Paris in the 1960s. The comfort of patinated wood, the vapours of alcohol, the musky linger of the make-up powder from the artists and their muses... Everything is present, in a floral and bright woody scent. The magic of a composition mixes the heat of the tonka bean, the depth of cedar, the richness of jasmine and the vivacity of juniper berries.

It all started at 34...boulevard Saint-Germain.

That’s where Christiane Montadre-Gautrot, Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet founded diptyque. We’re in the 1960s, a world of lively debate and café life, in the heart of the Latin Quarter. And we follow three night owls, friends, artists. In Paris, at diptyque.

From three, one.

Our story was born from a meeting between Christiane Gautrot, Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet. Three cosmopolitan aesthetes united by their taste for creative encounters and their sense of beauty. A friendship that would turn into a unique adventure… And the rest was diptyque.

It’s the story of a musical perfume.

In the film “A Scent In A Song“, Olivier Pescheux, a perfumer, and Lewis OfMan, a musician, compose the inspirational music of Orphéon as a duet. They tune the notes to the percussions. Against the heady sounds of jazz and bossa nova, the night is a celebration.

diptyque, 60 years

This year diptyque is celebrating its 60th anniversary: an opportunity to immerse yourself in everything that has inspired the House since its creation. A cavalcade of youthful creativity, 2021 will be dedicated to graphic design, encounters, nature, travel and curiosity. A year that will be filled with collections and events.
