The candle is presented with a lid of sculpted black wood inspired by the design of old diptyque candle stands. On the label, a compass rose symbolises the starting point of diptyque's Grand Tour. It is inspired by the compass rose carved on the forecourt of Notre-Dame de Paris to mark Kilometre Zero, the point from which every road in France starts.
For centuries, artists travelled the world on a long journey of cultural initiation called the Grand Tour. diptyque's roots echo this tradition: from the very beginning, the founders of the Maison took inspiration from all they discovered on their travels. diptyque now revives the spirit of the Grand Tour with an exclusive collection whose every creation tells the story of a stopover along a journey that stretches across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
