Divinidylle is a 2007 album by French singer Vanessa Paradis. It was recorded between November 2005 through June 2007. Critical reception was favourable with Allmusic suggesting that it was likely Paradis' best album yet.[1]

The first single, called "Divine Idylle", was released to French radio in June 2007. According to Francophonie Diffusion, it was the most-played French single worldwide during 2007.[2] This is the fifth studio album by Paradis, the last being her 2000 release Bliss. The artwork for the album was made by American actor Johnny Depp.

The track "Divine Idylle" was covered by Taiwanese pop singer Jolin Tsai under the title "Love Attraction" for the 2009 album Butterfly.
