As a child, Yves Coueslant, one of diptyque’s founders, spent his summers in Do Son, in Along Bay. The sea breeze carried the heady and spicy scent of tuberoses. Do Son has the delicateness and persistence of a memory from a childhood in Indochina – the memory of a flower, between lightness and delight.

At the Haiphong market, tuberoses are wrapped together with jasmine and ylang-ylang in large canna leaves to be used as offerings.
