In evolutionary terms, smell is said to be the oldest of our senses. According to scientists, however, it may be the most powerful—especially when it comes to triggering memories and cementing new ones. Scent is also an effective (and jetlag-free) way to satisfy feelings of wanderlust. Perhaps no one understands this better than Diptyque, a famed French brand known for its transportive fragrances.
“Every perfume is a micro-world all its own that distills memories of places loved, of moments lived, or of journeys shared,” says Sophie Fouilleron-Savino, director of product marketing at Diptyque. Whether you’re craving a far-flung escape or the familiarity of a wood-burning fire, the Parisian parfumerie has something to fulfill every travel fantasy, making them the perfect partner for The Ritz-Carlton and its world-class properties around the globe.
In every room, guests will find a collection of luxurious bath products—including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, and bar soap—boasting one of Diptyque’s iconic scents: Philosykos. Inspired by the memory of a Greek summer at Mount Pelion, this signature blend captures the essence of a sun-drenched fig tree by contrasting fresh and fruity notes with warm, woody accords.
