Diptyque
VINAIGRE DE TOILETTE ÉDITION MÉDITERRANÉE 2021

Diptyque revisits the ancestral gesture of toilet vinegar, between care and pleasure, to relax, tone up or cleanse, with a bouquet of aromatic Mediterranean herbs: lavender, rosemary and thyme.

History

In the Middle Ages, rosemary was placed under pillows to keep evil spirits and rascally witches away. It was even thought to ward off the plague. Ancient Greeks doted on the herb for its fragrant qualities, but also believed that it could improve memory—resulting in students wearing rosemary garlands during lessons. Others linked rosemary to happy memories, fidelity and love, which has made it a popular wedding staple across Europe since Charlemagne. In perfumery, the first known alcohol-based perfume that utilized rosemary was l’Eau de la Reine de Hongrie—with its first known usage during the 17th century, but which may date back as far as the 14th century.
Beyond its aromatic and culinary qualities, rosemary is a known circulation stimulant and digestive aid, as well as an antiseptic. It’s a rich source of antioxidants and has great anti-inflammatory properties. Rosemary is thought to purify both body and mind.
