  • Diptyque

According to Greek mythology, Minthé was a watery nymph who had an affair with the god of the underworld, Hades. When his wife Persephone found out, Minthé was turned into mint - the aromatic plant with the well known aroma. It spread out over the entire underground world, masking the scent of death.

Through the scent of mint, the brand creates a modern version of the fougère olfactory category. Eau de Minthé exudes the green aromatic scent of mint from Oregon, USA, accentuated by nutmeg. Patchouli adds depth to the composition, according to the house. Instead of lavender, which is typical for fougère perfumes, Diptyque uses the aromas of rose and geranium.

Diptyque was founded in 1961 by three friends who had been trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and in house decoration, Desmond Knox-Leet, Christiane Gautrot and Yves Coueslant. They first produced their own printed fabrics and then began importing to Paris the most renowned English perfumes. In 1963 Diptyque started producing a series of scented candles which soon gained world-wide fame. In 1968 Diptyque produced its first toilet water, l'EAU, based on a XVIth century pot pourri and clove pomander recipe. This was to be followed by other creations, which came as toilet water or soap as well as a rare and sophisticated toilet vinegar. Boxes in a sober design with elegant lettering and stylish drawings at the unmistakable hallmark of Diptyque products.
