Diptych, a bazaar of mythical fragrances less than a 10 minute walk from the Hotel Monge

A diptych is a painting or carving made of two parts, usually hinged together. At number 34, Boulevard Saint Germain, the design of two windows flanking the door gave rise to the name that now graces the stylish fragrance bazaar called Diptyque. Since it opened in 1961, the shop has always been a place apart. First it was a chic shop where one could discover unexpected and unique antique objects in Paris, gathered by a trio of friends in their travels. Then it became the essential location in which to find the top brands of traditional English perfumery, then little known in France. Eventually it became the scent emporium that we know and love today. In this Parisian shop where bottled fragrances are gathered together to form the incredible olfactory range that is so characteristic of Diptyque, scents pays tribute to nature, with aromatic magic crafted from rare, noble, precious and carefully selected raw materials, with no compromises permitted. Choosing from the wide range of scents available is certainly not easy, but what more pleasurable challenge could there be? Since the creation of its first eau de toilette in 1968, many creations bearing the unique and distinctive oval labels of Diptyque followed, along with the famous scented candles that are coveted throughout the world. More recently, care products for the face and body have presented a new direction for Diptyque to explore, revealing new sensory possibilities and another journey on the path of essences. You will surely be unable to resist the pleasure of discovering this merchant of mythical scents, within a 10 minute walk of the Hotel Monge.
