After months of anticipation, Diptyque's first Los Angeles boutique has finally opened on Larchmont Boulevard. Taking a note from the famed French perfumer's debut Southern California shop at South Coast Plaza, this location is filled with thoughtful Cali touches.
"Looking at the Los Angeles market, we felt that Larchmont Village captured the spirit of the first boutique and fit in perfectly with our brand's aesthetic," explains Diptyque USA managing director Donna DiDonato. "Our designer imagined the store like a promenade, where customers can stroll through and discover our brand at their leisure." Decor details include 50's inspired furniture, engraved logo bookshelves and "eclectic curiosities gathered from flea markets around the world," including LA's own offerings.
Diptyque Larchmont is open Monday through Wednesday from 9:30am to 6pm, Thursday from 9:30am to 8pm, Saturday from 9:30am to 7pm and Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
