Diptyque Volutes Eau de Toilette

Product information

Volutes was inspired by the imagined voyages of liner ships from Marseille to Saigon in eras passed, and the charm of life on board with the polished passageways, panelled lounges and elegant passengers. The scent evokes memories of Khedive cigarettes smoked by a charismatic, stylish woman leaning over the rails on the top deck.

A warm, woody oriental scent, Volutes is a blend of soft amber and tobacco absolute, with hints of honey.

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.
