Established in Paris in 1961, the brand Diptyque was created by three good friends, Desmond Knox-Leet who was a painter, Yves Coueslant currently a set designer at that time and Christian Gautrot who works in an architecture firm. The brand name, Diptyque came from an Ancient Greek word, "dipthykhos" which means a painting or sculpture with 2 panels. At first, they have been producing printed fabrics but they decided to introduce a scented candle line in 1963 which became their main product. Then in 1968, they launched their first perfume, L'eau , together with their home related products like bath soaps which paved their way to continuously create wonderful and amazing fragrances. Discover and be blown away of the unique and luxurious scents of Diptyque's essences.
