What scent perfectly epitomizes Paris? For diptyque, only chypre, a lively fragrance with its roots deep in one of the first and most famous perfumeries in the world, can fully embody the essence of the city with a thousand faces. An excess of lush roses precedes the freshness of bergamot notes, accented by bright pink berries. Its undertone is patchouli, bringing together a fragrance at once defiant and free. Eau Capitale is artfully decorated with undulating calligraphy, the Eiffel Tower, emblematic roses, a proud peacock fanning its feathers, and volutes intertwined. To design Eau Capitale, diptyque and Pierre Marie drew their inspiration from the Parisian architecture and the distinct style of Art Nouveau. Love Is In The Air. An ode to Paris - the capital of romance. Twilight on a quiet cobbled street, two lovers lock eyes under the shimmer of La Tour Eiffel.

  • Construction: Cross-braced latticed girder for minimum wind resistance built of 7,000 tons of high quality wrought iron in 18,000 parts using 300 skyjacks and held together by 2.5 million rivets. It is one of the earliest examples of wrought iron construction of this magnitude.

  • Weight: 7,000 tons. It takes 52 tons of paint every seven years to repaint it.

  • Visitors: 6.9 million people visit the Eiffel tower each year.

In 2003, 20,000 bright white lights were added which will shine 10 minutes every hour on the hour from sunset until after midnight.

Eiffel Tower history

The bold and unusual design caused considerable controversy. Many Frenchmen were vocal in their disapproval, including the famous: Charles Garnier, architect of the Opera; Gounod, composer; and writers Francois Coppee, Leconte de Lisle, Dumas the Younger, Maupassant. Others, Apollinaire, Cocteau, Pissarro, Dufy, Utrillo, Seurat, Marquet were strongly in favor. It was nearly torn down in 1909, but it's use for French radio telegraphy saved it. In 1916 it became the terminal for the first radio telephone service across the Atlantic. A meteorological station, radio communications station (1918), television transmission antenna (1957) and a suite of rooms used by Eiffel are located near the top.
