A memory from Indochina and its mountains covered by holy forests: the velvety, milky scent of sandalwood transported in logs by elephants and burned in temples. At night, the wind tempered the humidity and enhanced the rich scents of the slightly spicy wood. Yves Coueslant, one of diptyque’s founders, has never forgotten this fragrance from his childhood. A vivid memory illustrated by sandalwood from Mysore, at the forefront of this fragrance, cooled by vibrant cypress and myrtle.
In the eau de parfum, the Asian spices highlight the wood and its creamy nuances, anchoring Tam Dao more solidly in its region of origin.
