For 60 years, Paris-born luxury perfumier Diptyque has been infusing rooms with wonderful scents from the world's best candles. To commemorate six decades of the best home fragrances, the luxury label has decided to take a holiday – and we are all invited. 

This fall, you can be transported to a charming café in the heart of Lebanon, whisked away to bask in the sun on an island off of Venice – then arrive in Kyoto – all without leaving your home. 

We are talking, of course, about Diptyque's brand new 'Le Grand Tour' collection.

Diptyque's 'Le Grand Tour' collection

In this new collection, Diptyque brings magical destinations alive, allowing you to experience the essence of Paris, Venice, Milies, Kyoto, and Byblos. We explore them, below.

1. Paris

Paris Scented Candle (opens in new tab) for $105, at Diptyque

Diptyque's Paris scent (opens in new tab) embodies passing antique shops before losing ourselves in the pages of old books found on the booksellers' stands. At the heart of the arrangement, notes of polished wood and the spicy vanilla accents of weathered books and paving stones evoke this Parisian atmosphere where art meets history.


2. Venise

Venise Set of 3 Travel Size 7.5ml (opens in new tab) for $95, at Diptyque

The second stop on your journey is in Venise (opens in new tab) — a location that's near-and-dear to the founder's hearts. Well-known to those familiar with La Serenissima – the vegetable garden of Venice – the scent is reminiscent of mandarin, green, aromatic notes of bell pepper, basil, and tomatoes. 


3. Milies

Milies Scented Oval (opens in new tab) for $70, at Diptyque

The routes of Mount Pelion begin by the sea and reach Milies (opens in new tab) in Greece, the third stop-over of Le Grand Tour. On the way, fields of fig trees lined with cypresses. Further on, the fragrance of the immortals meets the cool breeze of the Mediterranean. The Milies perfumed oval and its marble beads, offered in a limited edition.


4. Kyoto

Kyoto 100mL Eau De Toilette and Furoshiki Wrap (opens in new tab) for $190, at Diptyque

The next stop-over on Le Grand Tour is the Kyoto candle (opens in new tab). Inspired by Ikebana, the art of Japanese floral composition, it is consisting of three notes: the rose, incense, and vetiver speaking to the people, the heavens, and the earth. 

5. Byblos

Byblos Scented Candle 300G (opens in new tab) for $165, at Diptyque

The fifth and final stop on the journey is Byblos. Influenced by the oldest port in the world, the large model Byblos scent (opens in new tab) consists of notes of roasted coffee and cedar, housed in a mixed earth pot. With surprising accents of cardamom, time stands still in a quaint cafe in the old souk of Byblos.
