Diptyque is a Paris-based luxury goods company that produces a high-end line of scented candles, perfumes, face and body care. The name Diptyque is from Ancient Greek δίπτυχος (díptykhos) and refers to a painting or sculpture composed of two panels.
Founded in 1961 by three friends (painter Desmond Knox-Leet, set designer Yves Coueslant, and Christiane Gautrot, who was working in an architecture firm), Diptyque originally produced printed fabrics, but in 1963 they introduced a line of scented candles which eventually became the focus of their business. There are now over fifty scented candles in the product line.
In 1968 Diptyque produced their first perfume, L'Eau, which was later followed by a series of other scented waters. These are also available as home products such as bath soaps.
Currently, Diptyque has several stores in Paris, four in London, and locations in Toulouse, Milan, Tokyo, Doha, and Dubai. In the United States, Diptyque boutiques are located in New York City, Buckhead Atlanta, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Westport, Connecticut, River Oaks District in Houston, Dallas, and Chicago. Each boutique is designed to fit the aesthetic of the city.
