Brand Story

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.

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by A little disappointing I was really looking forward to using this candle after reading excellent reviews about it. Upon opening the box the fragrance was strong, but after an hour or so it faded. It was incredibly difficult to light due to the wick being about 2mm long! I was worried it wouldn't light at all, but it eventually did. After reading the booklet that came with it about how the candle burns 'cleanly and evenly' I was most disappointed to find it does not in fact do that at all. Following the guidelines in the booklet I burned the candle for a couple of hours for the first time to avoid a hollowing of the wax, however after 3 hours it still hadn't melted evenly across the top and has left a hollow anyway! The fragrance is nowhere near as powerful as I'd expected- (perhaps it's just this scent, and there are others with more punch?) It didn't fill the room with aroma at all, but it is a nice fragrance when you get close to it. So overall I'm slightly disappointed with such an expensive product: perhaps it's just a bad batch, and maybe it'll burn more evenly as time goes on. Either way, I'm certainly not wowed by it at all. I've used far cheaper candles with better scent and more evenly melted wax. 25 March 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful, floral scented long lasting candle Another stunning candle. The beautiful scent fills the room. Long lasting and really the best candles you can get, although this is reflected in the price! Would make an ideal gift. 02 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Scents in candles from Diptyque We have purchased Diptyque candles for our own home for many years. A great variety of scents, not overpowering but subtle. This one was a gift for a friend. As we expected our friend was delighted with the gift and has now purchased some for herself. Purchase and delivery from John Lewis was faultless as usual. Highly recommended. 21 March 2012
