diptyque Candles and Newly Launched Beauty Products

The Paris based candle company, diptyque, has long been an ellelauri favorite. Our design studio, office, and stores are all filled with the fragrant scent, usually of Baies or Rose Duet.

Unique Beginnings 

“The diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson. They were joined by the third in 1961 and opened a shop to display their designs. Yves became the administrator and consultant; Desmond and Christiane were the artistic soul. Bit by bit, with finely honed taste, the trio transformed the site into a one-of-a-kind setting, a kind of stylish bazaar where one found surprising articles unmatched in Paris, mined and conveyed home by the trio over the course of their travels.” 



“Memories are the soul’s perfume” wrote George Sand. The raw materials used to create diptyque products are noble, rare, and precious. Finding the perfect balance is a slow, painstaking process. diptyque does not shy away from challenges or compromise: the olfactory experience is all that matters.


In order to unleash the perfect effect, each candle is a blend of first-class waxes specifically amalgamated and assessed when hot and cold by wax experts. Every scent is blended to reach the right melting temperature. Candles contain 8 to 9 mineral waxes, and on occasion a few plant-based waxes to enhance them.


Advocating luxury craftsmanship, diptyque’s containers are unique and elegant, demonstrating the art of handmade and designed in the most appropriate place.”

Other Uses

Because these candle containers are too beautiful to discard after the candle is gone below are some ideas of how we use them.
