Eaux De NYFW
That Diptyque is fashion’s favorite home fragrance house is fairly well documented; take a peek through any “insider’s picks” story in any number of glossies and one of its scented votives reliably makes the cut. But the Boulevard Saint-Germain-based brand is making the relationship official this season by “scenting” a number of designers’ shows. The intoxicating, sweet aroma in the lobby at the New York Public Library yesterday at Victoria Beckham’s presentation came courtesy of 60 Diptyque candles in Figuier; Rachel Zoe chose five of the rose and black current-tinged Baies; Wes Gordon blended two of its woodsy Feu de Bois with two of the resinous Opopanax; while Jenni Kayne opted for a trio of Feu de Bois, Opopanax, and the warm and sensual Santal. Diptyque’s when-fragrance-met-fashion experiment won’t end in New York, either. Style.com has learned that wafts of its classic Roses and Figuiers luminaries will mingle as editors peruse Equipment’s new collection at Le Crillon in Paris come March.
