The history of diptyque Paris

  • The founders: the secret of diptyque’s iconic uniqueness is the special alchemy between its founders: Christiane Montadre-Gautrot, Yves Coueslant and Desmond Knox-Leet. Their meeting set off a chain reaction, a creative wave that still spreads today. At the time, Christiane had just finished art school, while Desmond was painting: the two soon formed a partnership to produce decorative motifs for the fabrics and wallpapers of wealthy English homes. Thanks to some mutual acquaintances, they soon got to know the young Yves Coueslant, who had narrowly escaped a career as a banker to devote himself to the theatre.

  • diptyque's boutique: the first boutique, which appears on Boulevard Saint-Germain at number 34 in Paris, overlooks the street just like the works composed of two panels, typical of the Italian Renaissance or Flemish masters. It is the ideal setting for their shop of beautiful things. The name chosen is also perfect: diptyque.

  • The name diptyque: a name written like on the pediment of an ancient temple. Observed closely, the disorder of the letters breaks the mould of classical rigour and at a glance there is no shadow of doubt: it reads diptyque. The logo is the work of Desmond Knox-Leet. The name diptyque is pronounced simply, straightforwardly, but the logo is like a stumble, wreaking havoc among the letters. The reason? There is nothing more fascinating than that which is imperfect, unexpected. And yet, in the end, the word is in front of your eyes, white on black, instantly decipherable.

  • The diptyque logo: the history of the oval diptyque logo goes back to the textile origins of the maison and is a direct reference to ancient Rome: the elongated shield of a Roman soldier of the praetorian guard, in fact, decorated one of the first diptyque fabrics. Guided not so much by the vis of war but by a passion for ancient culture, our peaceful founders turned it into a label. In the centre of the oval appears the chosen heraldic coat of arms - a censer - symbolising their new profession as perfumers.

It evokes memories of that place dominated by hints of flowers, particularly tuberose, much loved by Coueslant's mother.

  • diptyque Philosykos Eau de Toilette: desmond Knox-Leet and Yves Coueslant used to spend their summer holidays in a house in Greece near Mount Pelion in Thessaly.

Along the paths that led to the sea, a clearing dotted with wild fig trees and all around the scent of their fruit.
