Diptyque's Rebirth of Do Son

From Vietnam to Paris, from a recollection to a fragrance, from illustration to animation…

Since its initial creation at Diptyque, the perfume Do Son has always been celebrated with invention and creativity. Just last year, its virtues were extolled in a book by photographer Tim Walker; this year, Do Son experiences a creative rebirth as it enters a new medium of expression.

This iconic Diptyque perfume continues to feed the imagination and nurture artistic collaborations. Eighteen years after its creation, Do Son is entering another chapter – one filled with movement, with colors and music – in a history that is already rich in imagery and vision. A chapter that celebrates drawing, a passion inextricably bound up with the identity of the Maison, expressed here in a way that is new, dynamic, universal and cinematic. An animated film – a unique creative medium that is ideal for evoking feelings and expressions in an emotive manner.

Yves Coueslant, whose childhood memories were behind the inception of this perfume, could not have wished for a finer, more contemporary interpretation of his creation when, seated at his work table, he dreamed up and imagined Do Son. The film depicts him at this seminal moment, so typical of the Diptyque creative process in which graphic expression reigns supreme.

Dó Son, diptyques' fragrance hero

As achild, Yves Coueslant, one of diptyque's founders, spent his summers at the seaside in a pagoda that his father had built ni Do Son, close to Halong Bay. The air was cooler there, far from the humid heat of the large port in Haiphong. The sea breeze carried with it the heady and slightly spicy scent of tuberoses that his mother loved so much. Do
Son has both - the delicateness and persistence of a memory of a childhood in Indochina
