Diptyque – Byblos Limited Edition
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.
