Diptyque Celebrates 50 Years of Perfume Non-Conformism with Tempo & Fleur de Peau (2018) {New Fragrances}


Diptyque parfums Est. 1968 is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the launch of a duo of unisex perfumes called Tempo and Fleur de Peau. It is the earliest niche perfume house to have appeared in the sense that we recognize today: attracted to confidentiality and rarity. We once wrote about their "...universe of half-hidden scents, whose existence you learn of by word of mouth."...

1968 marks the creation of L'Eau, a difficult yet interesting Elizabethan recipe for a spicy as hell scent for your humors, moods and enjoyment. It sounds all the more improbable a launch when you realize that from the Diptyque boutique you could smell charred car tires, tear gas and the perfume of students' revolt.

Diptyque-Tempo-visuel.jpg Both Tempo and Fleur de Peau were composed by perfumer Olivier Pescheux of Givaudan. The first one takes inspiration from the idea of a shamanistic forest, with three kinds of patchouli extractions, while the second one focuses on musk as a point of departure.

Tempo is said to feature a patchouli note of exquisite beauty whose aura is like the persistent vibration of a musical wake.

Diptyque-Fleur-de-peau-visuel.jpg Fleur de Peau is about the smells of skin and musk, or in Diptyque's own words as Valentine's Day looms,

"the most beloved smell that echoes (almost to a tee) that of lovers' bodies: navel, back of the knee, palm of the hand. That which on an olfactory level is rather akin to the soft, suprising scent of the fringed nubuck vests young bare-chested men used to wear."

SRP is 125€ for 75 ml.
