Diptyque – BYBLOS SCENTED CANDLE 300G
300 g candle
Coffee, Atlas cedar, White musks
To celebrate its 60th birthday, diptyque once again takes to the road with a collection inspired by a legendary cultural journey: the Grand Tour.
The fifth and final stopover on our journey: Byblos.
diptyque's founders stayed there when they travelled through Lebanon. Small cafés line the alleys of the old souk at the thousand-year-old port. There, a strong coffee is served, its aroma mingling with the scent of each stall's ancient woodwork. Not far away is the ancient Phoenician port where cargoes of spices and precious wood were once unloaded. At the heart of the composition, an enveloping accord of roasted coffee is accentuated by the liveliness of fresh cardamom and Atlas cedar. A succession of sensations and olfactory impressions that illustrate the atmosphere of a city with a fascinating historical and artistic legacy.
This candle comes in a marbled-clay vessel inspired by wisps of coffee smoke.
For centuries, artists travelled the world on a long journey of cultural initiation called the Grand Tour.
diptyque's roots echo this tradition: from the very beginning, the founders of the Maison took inspiration from all they discovered on their travels.
diptyque now revives the spirit of the Grand Tour with an exclusive collection whose every creation tells the story of a stopover along a journey that stretches across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
