The newest addition to the collection, the Pekin is an homage to Beijing. It takes inspiration from imperial temple roofs and the blossoming magnolias surrounding the Dajue Temple. Crafted in prosperous red with golden motifs of a dragon, it houses a scent that laces notes of green tea within a floral woody accord featuring sandalwood and magnolia.

The Paris iteration transports you to Saint Germain, one of the city’s most charming districts. The motifs pay tribute to the city of light with accents of pink, representing the light reflection of the sun on the Seine, on a gradient of blue and grey. A chypre accord features a hint of lavender.

Distinctly floral, the London scent is an homage to the Columbia Road flower market. A touch of spice lends warmth to the blend of heliotrope, lilac, juniper and hyacinth. The vessel reinterprets traditional English wallpapers, and references that of the Diptyque boutique at Westbourne Grove.

New York

New York takes its inspiration from the Big Apple’s glamorous speakeasy scene and buzzy nightlife. There’s a mix of vetiver, cedar wood, incense and patchouli in this candle, making it the kind of scent that can set the tone for a big night out or parties at home. The midnight blue jar spotlights an Art Deco motif; a reference to the city’s architectural signature.

Let the soothing notes of cypress, incense and ginger whisk you away to the Japanese shrines in Tokyo. The ivory vessel pays tribute to the inimitable art of Japanese gardens, bringing to mind the serenity of the city’s Yoyogi Koen and Shinjuku Gyoen parks.
