Diptyque, a business based in Paris that sells a line of scented candles, perfumes and body-care products, is opening its first boutique in New England at 47 Main St.

"We're excited to expand our retail presence with our first boutique in New England," said Donna DiDonato, managing director for Diptyque USA. "The new location features an exciting color palette influenced by the coastal heritage of New England, to create a true infusion of our original Parisian boutique with the charm of Westport."

The company started in Paris 51 years ago at 34 Boulevard St-Germain. In 1963, Diptyque introduced the company's first scented candles, and a few years later, launched its first eau de toilette.

Today, the brand's product portfolio includes home and personal fragrances along with a body-care line.

The Westport boutique hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 203-222-3553 or visit www.diptyqueparis.com.
