KL Fashion Week Ready-To-Wear 2016 is happening tomorrow and we’re super excited to be there for all the shows. Diptyque is the official scent for the fashion-forward event, the Do Son series in particular. If you want to smell on point at #KLFWRTW2016, this is literally the scent to wear.
The man behind this scent is Yves Coueslant, one of the three founding partners of Diptyque. He was directly inspired from his childhood days of living in Vietnam, where he and his mother would make frequent trips to the flower market for flowers to scent their home. The air carried the smell of the sea, interlaced with the fragrance of daisies, gerberas, lilies, roses and violets while tuberoses were usually used for worship and tied together with jasmine or ylang-ylang.
Do Son is fresh and breathes a full-bodied scent of the majestic tuberose. The Indian variation used was chosen for its bright green, spicy facets that gives off a fresh, natural plant aura, as though still on the vine. A slight sweetness in the scent comes from roses, orange blossoms and red peppercorns add a touch of spice.
There are 50ml and 100ml sizes for the Eau de Toilette, priced at RM399 and RM519 respectively, while a 75ml Eau de Parfum is RM619. If you prefer solid perfume, it’s priced at RM229, same as the roll-on oil perfume. To scent your home, Tubereuse scented candles are available in 70g for RM169, 190g for RM249, 300g for RM450 and 1.5kg RM1,489. Otherwise, go for the Home fragrance spray for RM275.
To sweeten your week, we’re giving away some Tubereuse scented candles during #KLFWRTW 2016. Find out how you can take home your very own Do Son candle here, starting tomorrow!
