Founded in Paris in 1961, Diptyque started out as an avant-garde fabrics and decorative art shop that also sold perfumed-scented candles. Their product line has since expanded over the years into personal fragrances of their signature scents and fragrance sprays for the home. The company also started selling body care products like lotions and bath products.

No one wants their own personal fragrance to be commonplace wherever they go, so it helps that the Maiden Lane shop is the only Diptyque store on the West Coast, and one of only three in the U.S. Though pricier than most fragrances sold at large department stores, the quality of their products over other brands is noticeable upon comparison. As reluctant as I am to divulge the exact scent I love and wear, Eau de Lierre is my favorite and is one of their newest and most complex fragrances to date. |diptyque|
