diptyque pays homage to its infamous all-time favorite Baies Candle and the personal fragrance equivalent, L’Ombre dans l’Eau Eau de Toilette, both containing the same notes of blackcurrant and roses with limited-edition travel-sized diptyque L’Ombre dans l’Eau. Translated “shadow on the water,” diptyque L’Ombre dans l’Eau, tells the story of a hidden garden and peaceful streams, of summer slumbers in the cool shadow of a weeping willow.  Painter and diptyque founder Desmond Knox-Leet illustrated this romantic garden that can only be discovered through the eye of the poet and found on the back of the fragrance.

This intense and energetic scent with top notes of bergamot, cardamom, pink pepper and mandarin will warm you right up. Its heart notes of Ceylon tea, iris and bluebell add a soft floral texture, while the white musk, vetiver and cedar wood give depth to this sensual fragrance.
