First Dibs: Diptyque ‘L’Art du Soin’ Travel Kit

Published April 20, 2012

We call first dibs on this travel kit from delightful French parfumerie Diptyque. For those uninitiated, Diptyque is to perfume, what Ladurée is to macaroons. Or it’s just the French equivalent of Jo Malone. The kit contains four products—a body polish, shower gel for body and hair, body lotion and hand balm—in a darling satin-finished box and white cotton pouch. More interesting that your standard airplane-friendly cosmetics kit, each product is inspired by a different destination along the Mediterranean; from Carthage (now a suburb of Tunis in Tunisia) and Alexandria, to Cordoba in Spain and Italy’s Reggio Calabria. Priced and $50 and  available in May 2012 from Diptyque boutiques and retailers.

This first dibs item was chosen by Interview fashion director Miguel Enamorado.
