OLFACTORY AND MUSICAL NOTES
At 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain, the music sets the tone. One day, Mozart was playing in the shop and a music connoisseur asked, “Who’s the director?” A young sales clerk replied, “Yves Coueslant, one of the diptyque founders, ma’am”. The surprised customers then said, “Coueslant? Don’t know him.” So, the store manager clarified, “The conductor is Daniel Barenboim.” Reassured, the woman went about blissfully collecting her purchases in the store of wonders.
DIPTYQUE, YOU KNOW !
A case of almond scented candles. Although the customer is American, she is perfectly at home in the boutique at 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain. She knows exactly what she wants. Everything was packaged up and ready to go in no time . "Would you like to fill out the duty-free form?" asked the sales person. "No thanks, the limo’s double parked and my private jet is waiting at Le Bourget". "Ah, where are you heading?” "Home, to Texas, where my whole ranch runs on diptyque fragrances, you know!"
