Paris in the early 60s. The Saint-Germain quarter was alive with the rhythm of all-night sessions in jazz clubs and artistic encounters. People would discuss the world, dance and laugh in a warm atmosphere as vibrant as it was elegant ... Orphéon was one of the bars, filled with joyful effervescence, where the three founders of the nearby diptyque boutique liked to meet. Today, paying tribute to this era and to creative friendships, the bar is immortalised in the olfactory portrait that bears its name: Orphéon. Freeze frame: curls of tobacco smoke mingle with powdery trails of blusher, lingering on burnished wood. At the heart of the composition is the atmosphere of that unforgettable place, recognisable through the warmth of the tonka bean, the depth of cedar and the vivacity of juniper berries.
This Fragrance Gesture is inspired by the enfleurage technique used in times past to capture the scent of flowers. Its alcohol-free wax is a scented balm that is applied with the fingertips, to reveal the warmth of the tonka bean, the depth of cedar and the vivacity of juniper berries at the heart of Orphéon’s composition.
In a new case decorated with colour illustrations, this solid perfume is refillable, for a gesture that's both portable and eco-responsible.
