Candle Profumata Byblos


- +

To celebrate its 60th anniversary, diptyque is back on the road with a collection inspired by a legendary cultural itinerary, the Grand Tour.

The fifth and final leg of the journey is Byblos.

The founders of diptyque stayed there during a crossing of Lebanon. Small cafes follow one another in the ancient souk of its millenary port. Here we serve a strong coffee, whose aroma blends with the smell of the old wooden shelves of the shops. Not far away is the ancient Phoenician port, where rare spices and precious woods passed through. At the heart of the composition, an enveloping accord of roasted coffee is enhanced by the vivacity of fresh cardamom and Atlas cedar wood. A succession of olfactory sensations and impressions that brings back to the atmosphere of a fascinating city thanks to its historical and artistic heritage.

This candle is presented in a variegated terracotta vase whose designs recall the swirls of coffee smoke. The vase is handcrafted: the colors and the distribution of the pigments can vary, making each piece absolutely unique.
