The legendary French perfumerie has outdone itself once more with the new Le Sablier line, a collection of six classic fragrances, each housed in a unique hourglass diffuser.
The sabliers are a new generation of hourglasses that count the minutes through scent instead of sand. One turn begins the ‘diptych hour’, sixty minutes of your chosen fragrance, from the earthy 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain, a blend of crumpled leaves, wood and spices, to the spicy, Gingembre, which fills the room with the smell of freshly cut ginger.
The beautiful diffusers are works of art on their own, that could have easily been found hidden in the markets of Morocco or inside a cabinet of curiosities. Each one features a band of perforated metal, with a lace-like design inspired by the swirls of an incense burner. The hourglass has a lifespan of around three months and can be refilled.
