A Journey of Scents: Diptyque Unveils Limited-Edition Do Son Set


Paying homage to their origins, luxury parfumerie Diptyque takes us on an olfactory journey to Vietnam through the Do Son set.

Scents have a unique way of intertwining itself with our deepest and fondest memories. Just one whiff of a fragrance is all it takes to transport us to vivid places from the distant past. This year, French perfumery Diptyque dives deep into its origins with the release of the limited-edition Do Son set. Inspired by tranquil seaside resorts in Vietnam, it takes us on a sentimental trip down memory lane.

A Voyage to the Past

Do Son captures the essence of Diptyque co-founder Yves Coueslant’s childhood in the Vietnamese coastal town it’s named after. It is an ode to the cây hoa huê, a Vietnamese tuberose adored by Coueslant’s mother. Playing on the top notes, orange blossoms are mixed in, adding a layer of zest reminiscent of summer. For the heart notes, rose is blended in, capturing the delicate nature of one’s treasured youth. Lastly, iris, benzoin, and white musk make up the scent’s base notes, encapsulating softness and warmth.

Composed by the perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, Do Son is prominently featured in a wide array of Diptyque’s products. This includes parfums, eau de toilette, shower oils, and candles. Since its inception, the scent has captivated many as it continues to immerse us in an intoxicating blend of tuberoses and Vietnamese seas.

Diptyque partners with Hanoia to craft wood cases with rattan lids for the limited-edition Do Son gift set.

An Expedition of the Senses

In celebration of the parfumerie maison’s vibrant history, Diptyque releases a new limited edition Do Son set. Exemplifying Diptyque’s artisanal techniques, it highlights the brand’s dedication to stimulating the senses to tell a narrative.
