Bond's Best: Maison Diptyque Summer Essentials

Diptyque Fragrance Summer

The perfumer has packed your case for an at-home sensory summer escape.

Picture the scene: turquoise waters shimmering in the sunlight and warm summer evenings heady with the scent of geranium, jasmine and lime. Wouldn't it be great if you could enjoy the essence of a Mediterranean summer holiday without having to leave home? Well, now you can, thanks to French perfume house, Diptyque.

Illustrated by the French artist Alexandre Benjamin Navet and designed to look like a holiday suitcase, this limited-edition Summer Essentials set, £230, packs a lot in. There are 10 scented staples to choose from, including a lemongrass and geranium summer body spray, satin oil and mini candles infused with Diptyque's signature fragrances – Fig Tree, Lemongrass and Cypress. The clever design featuring internal compartments and pull-out drawers also has good green credentials. Made out of card produced from sustainable forests, it can easily be refilled and reused again and again.

So, for those of you who can't get away just yet, or are simply fed up with the prospect of another lacklustre British summer, this little treasure trove of beauty treats could be just what you are looking for: the French Riviera in a box.
