As a child, Yves Coueslant, one of diptyque’s founders, spent his summers at a pagoda on the seaside that his father had built in Do Son, in Halong Bay. Far from the humid heat of the large port in Haiphong, the air was cooler. The sea breeze carried with it the heady and slightly spicy scent of tuberoses, a favorite of his mother. Do Son is the embodiment of precious and persistent memories from a childhood spent in Indochina. Memories of flowers, hovering between refreshing and enveloping.
