Diptyque The 34 Collection
34 boulevard saint germain - A signature line, the essence of a rare House with an incomparable style. In 1961, three friends – Christiane autrot, Desmond Knox-Leet and Yves Coueslant – joined together to create diptyque. Since the first eau de toilette, L’Eau, atypical fragrances have followed, always innovative and unusual. In 2011, to celebrate and embody fifty years of creativity, diptyque embarked on a new, innovative challenge. The venture was bold: act as “odour thieves”, like in Patrick Süskind’s novel, and encapsulate the scents of the flagship boutique on 34 boulevard Saint Germain, in Paris, and put them in a bottle to give everyone a little piece of this place and its history. Sprayed perfumes, burnt flames, turned out candles, soaps lined up in drawers, khilims on the floor, wall hangings, the old wooden counter, and so on. All the scents combine, as if by magic, in a captivating and complex fragrance. Available in an eau de toilette, as exquisite on the skin of a woman as on a man, and in room fragrances, this emblematic collection Houses the soul of 34 boulevard Saint Germain and inscribes it in modernity.
