For the second chapter of its 60 year celebration, the Maison is unveiling its new Eau de Parfum: Orphéon. Imagined as a tribute to a night bar adjoining the first diptyque boutique, it celebrates the place where the founders’ friendship was forged.
The three friends, when not exploring the globe themselves, would drop in at the Orpheon several times a week. It was their salon, their evening gateaway, their office outside the confines of their tiny kingdom. This was where they would invite friends to meet them or teel each other about their finds, try out their works or make sketches. This was where the ideas flowed freely.
The atmosphere has been recreated by the perfumer Olivier Pescheux – since there is no one left who can personally recall these places, the key requirement was to reinvent them. Orpheon is an olfactory dream fresh, flowery, sensual and woody, dominated by cedar, vetiver and patchouli.
So Orphéon like all things diptyque, can be seen as a three-step waltz (Maison, perfumer, illustrator). A pattern that has endured for sixty years.
The new Eau de parfum, Orphéon is available at ERA Department stores, Mall of Cyprus (Nicosia) & Olympia (Limassol).
