Lavender. To evoke this flower, Diptyque decided to approach it like a character in a novel, given how widespread it is in Provencal literature, where it is deliberately given emphasis. Jean Giono saw it as “the soul of Provence”, while other Provencal writers such as Frédéric Mistral, Marcel Pagnol and Alphonse Daudet became its emissaries... It is a beautiful balance of light and shade, its unique blue giving its name to a color. Lavender. The history of lavender goes back to ancient times, to the verses of Virgil’s Bucolics. In the Middle Ages, its therapeutic qualities were recognized, and it was given a name derived from Latin which means “to wash”, symbolizing its protective qualities. Cultivated in Mediterranean regions, in the 19th century it became a sought-after perfume adored by Queen Victoria. “... The harsh garrigue embalmed by lavender”, in the words of André Gide. It has a complex, generous nature. Wise and friendly, it evokes intimate memories: the scent of blue fields warmed by the sun, the soothing fragrance of cupboards filled with white linen. This elegant flower captures the essence of an English gentleman.
