Founded in France in 1961, Diptyque is one of my favorite perfume houses. In the early 1960s, painter Desmond Knox-Leet, designer Yves Coueslant and architect Christiane Gautrot worked together to create Diptyque.

In its early years, Diptyque specialized in prints such as curtains and cushions.

First Diptyque candles

It was not until 1963 that Diptyque launched its first line of scented candles for the home.
