About Diptyque

was founded by three singular personalities united by strong aesthetic alchemy: Christiane Montadre-Gautrot —who graduated from l’Ecole des Arts Décoratifs, Yves Coueslant —who had escaped an unlikely career in banking, and Desmond Knox-Leet —a painter. Together, they opened their chic shop of curiosities—think far-flung fabrics and exotic treasures—at 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris in 1961.

The Original Diptyque Candles

It was only after two years of existence in 1963 that Diptyque created its first trio of candles, perfumed with  (Aubépine), (Cannelle), and (Thé). The perfumes of these first three candles were all created in Desmond’s workshop at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain, above the boutique, where he conducted countless tests to find the right combination for the three scents.

This was the beginning of a wide repertoire of more than 50 scents that pay homage to nature simply by enhancing the raw ingredients. Keep scrolling to discover the 10 best Diptyque candle scents to make your home smell amazing!
