Diptyque opens at Bal Harbour

Fashion News

If there’s a candle that sets the bar for all of the rest, it’s diptyque. Whether Tuberose, Figuier or Baies—or TK others, there’s a weight and luxury to Diptyques scents that have set it apart from all others since its founding in Paris in 1961. The creative foundation the company was built upon—its three founders were an interior designer, a painter and set designer—continues with its artful boutiques, each a unique environment unto itself.

At Bal Harbour, the tone is 1950s Miami: elegant archways give way to layers of green, wood and brass, punctuated with vintage chairs and a banana leaf pattern rug—the same as the one in the original 34 boulevard Saint Germain boutique.

And, appropriately, the boutique will celebrate its opening with an event during Art Basel, in partnership with Cultured magazine. The focal point are the windows, painted by French artist Julien Colombier, who also lent his hand to this season’s limited edition holiday collection.

Experience the entire diptyque universe—collections of eau de toilette, eau de parfum, home fragrance, body care and seasonal and limited edition products. And, just in time for the holidays, the boutique also offers the new diptyque At Your Service, a concierge service offering hand gift wrapping and same day delivery.

The diptyque story began in Paris more than 50 years ago, at 34 boulevard Saint Germain, with three friends Christiane Gautrot, interior decorator, Desmond Knox-Leet, painter, and Yves Coueslant, theatre administrator and set designer. In 1961 the trio opened the first diptyque boutique, which evolved into a chic bazaar offering a fascinating variety of unique products gathered from their travels. Two years later, they introduced the first diptyque scented candles – Aubépine, Cannelle and Thé. And the rest is fragrant history.
