diptyque Milies Scented Oval - Limited Edition

To celebrate its 60th birthday, diptyque once again takes to the road with a collection inspired by a legendary cultural journey: the Grand Tour. The third stopover on the journey is Milies, in Greece. diptyque's founders used to rent a house there in the summer. The village nestled at the foot of Mount Pelion, and to reach it one had to follow the mountain paths. The scented oval retraces in scents the roads that reached from the coast up to Pelion. The spicy scent of immortelle mingles with the cool Mediterranean wind before warming up next to sun-drenched fig trees. In this composition, the warm-cool mélange of spicy and woody aromatic notes evokes the contrasts and richness of this journey to the heart of Greece.
