THE AL­LURE: On a sun-filled day while pick­ing fruits for jam and flow­ers for bou­quets, Dido Mer­win, friend of Diptyque’s trio of founders, en­coun­tered an un­usual aro­matic union. In time, this vi­gnette formed the foun­da­tion of L’Om­bre dans l’Eau, or fit­tingly, “shadow in the wa­ter”. BE IN­SPIRED: The nos­tal­gic qual­ity of the scent is mes­meris­ing; it is a sen­sory rid­dle that wa­vers like a dream, ut­terly sen­sual and charged with mem­ory. DID YOU KNOW? Cre­ated in 1983 by Serge Kalouguine, this per­fume was de­signed to recre­ate a stroll through a lush English gar­den. Black­cur­rant leaves and Bul­gar­ian roses make this cu­ri­ous fragrance, while hints of cas­sis and musk com­plete this idyl­lic es­capade into na­ture.
