Diptyque - Raw Materials In Colors - Do Son
THE COLOUR OF SCENT - Smell colours, see scents. . .
For the fragrances of the Maison diptyque, raw materials are what pigments mean for a painter's color palette. Now five of the emblematic Eaux de Toilettes have been colourfully staged according to the raw materials used for their composition: Do Son, Eau de Sens, L'Ombre dans l'Eau, Philosykos and Tam Dao. These are each available in a limited edition of 30ml.
THE LIMITED EDITION
It often happens that artists"smell" a color, as if the image in their head forms a scent. A strong red radiates the smell of ripe cherries, a bright purple seems to smell of violets. . . In the same way, perfumers naturally associate a fragrance nuance with a particular hue. This summer, diptyque has been inspired by this principle and has assigned matching colours to the Maison's five emblematic fragrances, always based on the shade corresponding to the main ingredient of each of the five compositions:
For Do Son, a water green reflects the spicy freshness of tuberose.
A bouquet of tuberose, jasmine, orange blossom and maritime notes.
Do Son has the tenderness and permanence of a childhood memory in Indochina - the memory of a beloved flower, between lightness and joie de vivre.
As a child, Yves Coueslant, one of the founders of diptyque, spent his summers in Do Son, in Along Bay. Far away from the humid heat of the big harbour in Haiphong the air was cooler. The sea breeze carried with it the intoxicating and slightly spicy scent of tuberose, the flower his mother loved so much when the white flowers radiated their unique aroma into the darkness of the wooden pagoda at sunset.
In order to express this interplay even more intensively, the colouring also appears on the packaging, with a colour-intensive portrait of the respective fragrance.
Each ingredient is shown as it occurs naturally in a garden or landscape. For Do Son, a bouquet of tuberoses was staged in a play of motifs and colours, illustrating the unique esprit of this iconic fragrance. A piece of nature, captured in a snapshot by the photographer.
