Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain Eau de Toilette
Celebrating Diptyque's 50th anniversary, 34 Boulevard Saint Germain is a fresh, green and spicy fragrance, an innovative, rich and complex blend that is neither feminine nor masculine.
Composed of 40 raw materials, the eau de toilette encapsulates the scent of Diptyque's first boutique - located on 34 Boulevard Saint Germain - with the exquisite, unusual notes of damp mosses, crumpled blackcurrent leaves, sun-dried fig leaves, exotic spices, fresh flowers from English gardens, warm woods and comforting balms.
In a contemporary glass bottle, Diptyque's signature oval-shaped label is engraved on the black Bakelite cap, whilst the concave base evokes the rounded form of the paperweights sold at 34 Boulevard Saint Germain.
With a chypre base, this voluptuous scent is suitable for both men and women.

The diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson. They were joined by the third in 1961 and opened a shop to display their designs. Yves became the administrator and consultant; Desmond and Christiane were the artistic soul. Bit by bit, with finely honed taste, the trio transformed the site into a one-of-a-kind setting, a kind of stylish bazaar where one found surprising articles unmatched in Paris, mined and conveyed home by the trio over the course of their travels.
