Qatar Airways Introduces Diptyque Amenity Kits

Qatar Airways Introduces Diptyque Amenity Kits

15

Qatar Airways is teaming up with Diptyque for its new amenity kits, and that’s pretty cool.

Qatar Airways’ new Diptyque amenity kits

It’s common for airlines to collaborate with luxury brands for amenity kits, since it’s often a win-win — airlines can offer something nice to their premium passengers, while luxury brands can get samples of their products out in front of people who spend a lot of money on airline tickets (generally a pretty affluent crowd).

Over time we often see airlines switch the products in their amenity kits, either because they’re trying to elevate the experience, or because the contract with a particular company only runs for so long. Along those lines, Qatar Airways is teaming up with French fragrance brand Diptyque.

Select premium passengers will receive exclusive amenity kits on flights from Doha, and gift boxes on flights to Doha. The new range of amenities consists of Diptyque branded bags as well as gift boxes featuring Diptyque’s signature oval branding, customized for male and female passengers.

You can expect these to include the following products:

  • Nourishing lip balm, enriched with roses and violets
  • Fresh lotion for the body, infused with the scent of orange blossoms
  • Essential face cream, with prickly pear extract
  • Diptyque fragrance, including ‘Eau Rose’ Eau de Toilette (an infusion of damascena and centifolia roses), and ‘34 Boulevard Saint Germain’ Eau de Toilette (with notes of amber, patchouli, cinnamon and rose)
Qatar Airways Diptyque amenity kits

Qatar Airways is the only airline in the world to have Diptyque amenity kits. However, this isn’t the first time that the airline has offered products from Diptyque. In 2021, the airline introduced Diptyque hand wash in both lounges and onboard in premium cabins.

Qatar Airways already has Diptyque toiletries

As a point of comparison, Qatar Airways’ current standard business class amenity kits are from BRIC, and feature products from Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio. I’d say this represents quite an upgrade.

Bottom line

There’s not an airline in the world that’s as committed to the little details of the premium traveler experience as Qatar Airways. Whether it’s dine on demand, an amazing selection of coffee and alcohol, reasonably priced high-speed Wi-Fi, pajamas, or amenity kits, the airline does a great job with this kind of stuff.

Diptyque is a phenomenal luxury brand, and it’s nice to see Qatar Airways rolling out amenity kits with these products.

    I flew DOH to MAN February 2022. I was disappointed to find that the amenity kit items came in a cardboard box instead of the more familiar faux leather case.

  2. Lesley Shone Guest

    My experiences with Qatar business class have been good in the past so I am looking forward to flying with them again when I go from JHB to LHR via Doha on 11 May this year.

    I wish they’d spend the money on improving their IT dept instead. Buggiest app ever.

    Diptyque today from DOH-DFW. Nice change!

    Although there are apparently male and female versions I am under the impression that the rather floral contents are aimed at the female traveller. Has the male traveller been shortchanged I'm wondering?
    From my experience 'overpowering' fragrances of any kind are undesirable in a confined space, so maybe this new pack misses the mark.
    I will find out in early April when I go QR BNE/DOH/LHR. Untill then I will remain more than happy with the BRIC bag of goodies.

    Received the new kit in January ORD to DOH
    The box on the way there and the dopp bag on return,
    .I prefer the previous kits.
    The scent used for the items in the box were too over powering

    As if I needed another reason to fly Qatar again. I did however like the BRICS bags, curious to see how these are.

    These have been handed out for over a month or so. Got the pouch on my way from DOH-BOS and got the box on the BOS-DOH sector. This was in January-February 2022

    Except on our recent IAD-DOH flight we received a very small box (made of paper) instead of a leather bag. Did get the leather bag on the return trip filled with same content, but the male version of the bag is inferior than the BRIC.
    The white leather bag picture you’re showing is the female version of the bag. I don’t really consider this as an upgrade from Qatar. Made the tiny paper cardboard...

      Hi Tim, I recently received the same small box on a JFK-DOH flight on Feb. 8th. I liked the BRIC bags given out in the past too.

  10. Mike Saint Guest

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Diptique fragrances. They smell the best. The only issue is they don't last long. Also, it's the only scent that my wife steals my cologne and uses it herself. Great unisex scent. Smells so fresh.

    When are these rolling out?

    I am flying tonight on Qatar from Miami. I would love to try them!

    1. Ben Schlappig OMAAT

      @ JB -- Press release just says they're being rolled out to these markets, but doesn't state exactly which date. So it's possible that they're available already, or maybe not. Please report back, and enjoy your flight!

    2. JL Guest

      It's already rolled out.
      I already received these new kits 2 weeks ago.

    I quite like the BRIC amenity kits, especially the face mist.

    The BRIC bags are excellent for holding cords, travel adapters and my GoPro.
