Diptyque, maker of the world's most desirable candles, has opened its very first Miami boutique at Bal Harbour Shops! The space looks as perfect as it smells. It's like the Florida room of your dreams with vivid green tones, vintage contemporary furniture, and plenty of palms.
"Diptyque belongs in Miami. It is a market we have been looking to enter for some time and we are eager to finally be here!" says Donna DiDonato, Managing Director of Diptyque USA. Diptyque is also set to open in Brickell City Centre, along with a number of other boutiques that were recently announced.
Homages are paid, both to a Miami of a mid-century and Diptyque's 50-year history. The Banana leaf prints, for one, are the same from Diptyque's original boutique on 34 boulevard Saint Germain, where its three founders began showcasing fabric designs before getting into the business of scents.
The store houses all of the brand's products, from home and personal fragrances to candles and even its body care line. This Diptyque boutique also offers a concierge service, which gives you same day delivery plus and gift-wrapping, which is perfect for the upcoming holiday season.
