THE STORY OF A SCENT
Picture yourself strolling among the flower stalls along the shores of the Gulf of Tonkin in Vietnam while floral vendors sprinkle water directly onto the petals of tuberose flowers. That dreamy scenario was a vivid childhood memory of the late Diptyque cofounder Yves Couselant, who traveled there with his mother year after year. He was determined to translate that intimate experience into a distinct scent. In 2005 Diptyque revealed Do Son (appropriately named for the little seaside resort where Couselant and his mother stayed), an aquatic floral with tuberose at its core. Consider it the next best thing to going on a beachy holiday.
