In 1961, Christiane Montadre-Gautrot, Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet, three artists and friends opened an unusual boutique with a daring plan: listen to their intuition and only do what they love. Nothing dampened their friendship as their business grew, and Diptyque spread the creations born of this incomparable friendship all around the world.
Diptyque expresses itself through fragrances and the senses. Our founders – a painter, an interior architect and a theatre set designer in their parallel lives – embody their fragrances with images. Each of their compositions arises from an artistic approach. Each detail makes sense. Each image tells the story of a journey. Candles, eaux de toilette, diffusers, ceramic ovals, skin and body care every Diptyque creation is a real piece of art.
