Smooth Lines | Diptyque

by BJ Panda Bear

Searching for the perfect summer scent is a task not for the faint of heart. There is always the question of your summer intent. Do you want to smell florally and fruity; ready for a summer linen outfit, sandals, and a little frolic in the sun or would you rather take a dive into a sultry, sensual and enveloping scent of something sexy; humidity and a barely there outfit, part of the late night party. Either way more than likely those descriptions painted some story in your mind.

One brand that fully embraces this collaborative sensibility of creating the mise en sene is Diptyque, whose storied history is proudly reference their founding father, the painter Desmond Knox-Leet work. Their latest release of mini travel sized ounce bottles of their greatest hits are incased in glass bottles which are tinted in hues that reflect their essence. Iconic scents that can be thrown in the bag perfect for any statement. Below we match the scents with the best scenario and a soundtrack to match.


Philosykos

Fruity and earthy with the scent of fig, good for a party that’s in the evening or perhaps well suggested for the hottest day. A good scent to guide you from an al fresco brunch the evenings party. The best match for this scent is a little Bardot… not the wine, but we wouldn’t say not Brigitte Bardot!

Do Son

The floral sweet scent of tuberose mixed with a light hint of jasmine tea marks the mood for a hot summer tickled by the mist of salt water. A pool party or preferably a yacht party that entices fine dressing can benefit from this spritz. Les Baxter anything for that grooving Technicolor cinematic moment is a must.

Tam Dao

Sensual seductive burning sandalwood somewhere between monastic and sexual evening out. If you got someone or not enjoy the flirtatious provocations. Let your hair down the newest bar just opened and all your friends are there getting disco deep with something fanciful, who knows what mysterious adventures will come. “Love to Love You Baby” extended mix on repeat please!

L’ombre Dans L’eau

Rose and berries, bring on yummy times of joy and laughs - lovely brunching and/ or dunching scent for a sprawl around galleries, perhaps this is can take you wandering around Hauser Wirth and a little shopping for some indie brands while blasting Steve Lacy.

Eau Des Sens

The citrus and orange blossom scent is sure to ignite a desire to dance and share the love to the whole room, the bright and floral scent though flighty and flirty will definitely intoxicates all those around you. A cold sangria and touch of South African House music is all you need to get down to the floor all night.
