What a Lovely Bunch

By Imogen Hart

Why limit yourself to a signature fragrance when you can have the pick of the bunch? Everyone can delight in having a perfume wardrobe, can explore the delights of a particular facet or ingredient they adore. There are many a takes – on say – florals, if that is your thing.

Divine French perfumers Diptyque have done just this. By exploring some of their key floral juices, they have reimagined the visual interpretation as a feast for the eyes, not just the nose.

Collaborating with digital floral artist Bas Meeuws, Diptyque Paris have introduced an exclusive line of six limited edition ‘Impossible Bouquets’ perfumes. Each fragrance is inspired by a different aspect of horticulture from around the world, making every fragrance unique with a breath-taking freshness, which is guaranteed to make a great impression.

Blending artistry into perfumery makes the Impossible Bouquets line undoubtedly unique, from the packaging to the scents; the collection is a work of art.

Originally located on Boulevard St-Germain in Paris, Diptyque Paris was founded by Christiane Montadre-Gautrot, Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet. Their friendship was initially built on their shared passion for creativity.

Opening in Paris, with the plan to follow their intuition and their hearts in this business venture, allowed their boutique to flourish into the sumptuous brand that it is today.
