Diptyque unveils first new fragrance since 2021

Diptyque has launched its first new fragrance since 2021, developed by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin and artist Alix Waline. The fragrance is designed to be a "flawless portrayal of paper and a way for each wearer to express their unique individuality".

L’Eau Papier begins with the extract of roasted sesame seeds, evoking the scent of ink. This is blended with steamed rice and blond wood accords, floral mimosa notes and white musks, resulting in a recreation of the "sensitive interaction of when ink is applied to paper".

Just like ink permeating different sheets of paper differently, the Eau de Toilette will produce different results from one skin to another and over time, due to the way the white musks keeps developing.

Priced at £90 for 50ml and £125 for 100ml, the L’Eau Papier fragrance is available in-store and online at Diptyque.
