The 423sqf space of Diptyque's first store in Singapore is an ode to the brand’s biggest muse: nature. Slabs of Indian Forest Green marble clad the walls and counter, while lush foliage wraps a brass pergola, framing a two-seat alcove where tete-a-tetes over notes and noses are to be had. There's a gift-wrapping station, too!
The opening coincides with the 50th anniversary of Diptyque’s first eau de toilette, named L’Eau (water in French), and the launch of two invigorating scents. Fleur de Peau is a floral scent made up of musk, iris and pinkpeppercorn, while Tempo is a woody fragrance with hints of patchouli and clary sage.
Diptyque is located at #B1-33A Takashimaya, Ngee Ann City.
