The essence of union
THERE are some perfumes which come off smelling no more than scented water in a bottle. And then, there is Diptyque. Its perfumes are made by applying the infusion method whereby elements such as floral petals are immersed in an alcoholic solution (usually for over six months). This captures the unique incomparable sensation of the flower. For Valentine’s this year, experience the scent of roses with Diptyque Eau Rose collection. The rose-scented products in this collection opens with the floral opus from Les Eaux in Normandy, France. Then comes the heart of bergamot and blackcurrant, followed by a combination of musk, cedar and honey for a full sensory finish.
Indulge in Voile Lacte, a moisturising body lotion for softer skin, thanks to a combination of olive oil and musk rose. You can also choose the Emulsion pour les mains, a light hand lotion enriched with macadamia oil and aloe vera.
For those who love scented candles, there’s the limited edition Rosa Mundi candle, which smells like a labyrinth of roses. The Eau Rose products are adorned with elegant floral drawing in black ink to highlight the exquisite beauty of the flower.
Prices range from RM129 to RM305. Available at Diptyque counters and Kens Apothecary outlets nationwide.
