The mountains of Tonkin tremble under the weighty steps of elephants carrying uprooted trees of precious wood through the vines. Majestic sandalwood breathes out its redolence in the sweltering heat of the jungle… 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.
Tam Dao is an Eau de Toilette that pays tribute to the most sought-after of the sacred woods: the sandalwood of Goa. To obtain a higher quality of sandalwood from East India, the extraction is performed using trees over 60 years old, which means that the essence is extremely rare.
