Scent is a curious thing. Many of us tend to experience it in contrasts. Catching a whiff of a stranger’s perfume may last only a moment as you pass them by on your daily commute. Meanwhile, the smell of your grandmother’s cooking might remain as fresh in your memory as it did on that summer years ago. Renowned French fragrance label Diptyque draws on the idea of scent as both immersive and temporary at their pop-up exhibition which ran from 3 to 9 May at Paragon Orchard Lobby. The event served as a retrospective of Diptyque’s storied history as a perfume-maker and the unveiling of their latest fragrance, Eau de Minthé.

About Diptyque Eau de Minthé
Eau de Minthé recalls the mythlogy of the nymph who attempted to seduce Hades and was turned into a delicate stem of mint. The result is an intoxicating blend of lively geranium and soft patchouli, accentuated by nutmeg, with the fresh fragrance of mint at its heart. A testament to the fern olfactory family, the scent is both sweet and spicy with an herbal undertone.
