Ilio Eau de Toilette
On the coast, the rocky cliffs plunge into waves caressed by the sun. The sea stretches to the horizon to meet the sky. For diptyque's founders, the Mediterranean was the "landscape of the soul". This is where they came in the summer, to relax and repose in the heart of unspoilt nature.
Ilio is a tribute to this Mediterranean land bathed in light and fragrance. At the heart of the composition is an unusual fruit with fresh, juicy notes: the prickly pear. Bergamot illuminates its liveliness while jasmine brings nuance, softening its green facets with a delicate floral note. The final touch: iris rounds out the accord with a velvety softness.Why we're addicted: The scent celebrates summer and transports you to the heart of the Mediterranean with fruity, floral and fresh, juicy notes.

The artist Luke Edward Hall has illustrated the iconic oval on this limited-edition bottle – a creation of colorful simplicity that celebrates the authenticity of nature in the summertime.
To celebrate summer, diptyque transports us to the heart of Mediterranean nature. A land of unspoiled beauty, of scents and colors, the Mediterranean has been a constant source of inspiration for the Maison. From the prickly pears clustering along a narrow cove to the lavender and lemongrass on a terrace at sunset, to smell their scents is to be swept away to a far-off place.
Did you know? In Greek, the word ilio evokes the sun. For diptyque, it inspired a green, fruity creation that fragrances the skin with summery accents.

The Diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson.
