Diptyque’s New Fragrance is an Ode to the City of Light

In its latest ode to Paris, Diptyque released a range of fragrances inspired by the traditional chypre. For those that don’t know, a chypre is a lively scent that’s characterized by vibrant citrus notes and earthy, floral, and woody undertones — a perfect spring repose to start the year. The French scent maker launched the Eau de Parfum Eau Capitale, a unisex update to the formal fragrance that is influenced by the City of Lights and stands as “an ‘abstract,’ enigmatic fragrance,” according to a press release. Packaging for the fragrance follows an Art Nouveau theme, exemplified with intricate and graphic illustrations. A limited-edition collection of similarly scented candles accompany the launch of this new scent.
