Private perfumed visit to the former Post office of the Louvre #2

The exhibition "Voyages Immobiles" of the Maison Diptyque

Description

[IN FRENCH ONLY] The famous perfume house Diptyque celebrates its sixtieth anniversary with a contemporary art exhibition that has flair! Artists and perfumers have imagined unique works and fragrances to take you on a journey from the West to the East, among the iconic destinations that have inspired the House.

To know

The House of Diptyque is a pioneering French perfume house created in 1961 by painter Desmond Knox-Leet, theater man Yves Coueslant and architect Christiane Gautrot. Artist-aesthetes sensitive to the cultures of the whole world, they are inspired by travels, real or dreamed, to create their perfumes.

The anniversary exhibition "Voyages Immobiles" offers an olfactory and artistic journey with works evoking the five major destinations associated with the House:  

  • Greece with Zoë Paul's ceramic pearl curtain,
  • Lebanon with the archaeological remains of Rabih Kayrouz, 
  • Japan with a scent reminiscent of Kyoto by Hiroshi Sugimoto,
  • France with the poems and drawings of Joël Andrianomearisoa, 
  • Italy with the surprising candle of Johan Creten.

Each of these ports of call is embodied by a perfume created for the occasion in limited edition. All in the heart of Paris, at the former Louvre Post Office whose amazing transformation was completed last year.
