Fragrance layering. An art form perfected in the Middle East. A ritual where several fragranced products from bath oils to moisturizer and perfumes are combined together to create your own personal scent. Not just for your body, your home is the perfect place to practice layering. Diptyque has been pioneering this ritual since 1963. Creating a trio of candles, its founders introduced the hawthorn, cinnamon and tea fragrances to be burnt not only alone but in pairs too. Over time such scents as wood fire, fig tree and berries joined the lineup, till over fifty candles were primed to be mixed and matched for endless combinations.

For its latest collaboration Diptyque looks to Maison Pierre Frey. A family business that in the French tradition specializes in decorating, creating, producing and manufacturing fabrics and wallpapers, Diptyque used prints from its archives and permanent collections. Drawing upon Diptyque’s history where the house used to pair each of its scents with a textile, this partnership brings together five scent duos in limited-edition boxes. The scents themselves celebrate unique moments in time. Transporting you to Greece in the shade of fig trees (cypress and fig tree candles) to An Eastern garden at dusk (with Lily and Narguile candles) each offers those residing in your home a moment of escape.
