“Connecting the A’s to B’s with special attention on the C’s”
This year, Parisian icon and much-loved fragrance brand Diptyque celebrates 60 years of free-spirited, artistic parfumerie. To mark the occasion, they’ve launched a new scent, Orphéon EDP, inspired by the bar of the same name: a late-night haunt filled with joyful effervescence, where the three founders of the nearby Diptyque boutique liked to meet up. Hear more about what the brand, their perfumer and the illustrator who designed the scent’s label have to say about this nostalgic scent below.
Picture this: Paris in the early 60s—the Saint-Germain quarter is alive with the rhythm of all-night jazz club sessions and artistic encounters. The three original founders of Diptyque, one an English painter, one a Parisian theatrical director and one an interior decorator, meet up at the Orphéon bar to discuss their ideas, share their thoughts and inspire each other.
According to the brand: “Orphéon eau de parfum is the olfactory portrait of the place. It is enveloping, woody, spicy and floral, recalling the décor of wood and velvet, the waft of alcohol and tobacco, the perfumed trail of elegant ladies and dashing gents.”
