Eau Moheli Eau de Toilette Limited Edition
Here, the ylang-ylang flower takes centre stage, as it does on the island of Moheli in the Comoros archipelago, where this star-shaped yellow flower flourishes alongside lushious vegetation. It has never been experienced this way: green, spicy, slightly woody, without languor or opulence.
For this limited edition collection, diptyque collaborated with digital floral artist Bas Meeuws. Together, they reinterpret the iconic floral fragrances of the House in the form of modern still lifes, using hidden details to reveal the story behind each scent.
Each fragrance purchase will now include a matching sample. Use the sample to test the fragrance on your skin before opening the full-size bottle. We will gladly accept unopened returns within 30 days of original purchase, free of charge.
Eau Moheli as visualised by Bas Meeuws
How refined this bouquet is! A few sprigs of ylang-ylang, yellow and dishevelled, set down amid high stems bearing green leaves and colourful flowers. They show us the flower in its natural state, just the way it blossoms on the island of Moheli in the Comoros archipelago. Here, the bright orange of the vase heightens the contrast between the ylang-ylang flowers and their green, faintly fruity fragrances. Butterflies flutter amid the flowers, reminiscent of the illustration on the bottle and the floral nature of Eau Moheli.
Bas Meeuws was born in Heerlen in the Netherlands. He defines himself as a digital floral artist. Styling himself after the great Flemish still life painters, he uses his camera to capture the beauty and grace of flowers, the delicacy of their lines and colours. Then he arranges them into impossible bouquets, liberated from flowering times and seasons, each creation becoming a sublimation of nature.
