In fine feather

Entering Diptyque’s new store, nestled in the top floor of Wynn Plaza shops, is an exercise in sensory overload — in the best way possible. Delightful and sophisticated fragrances waft from the space’s signature candle vessels, gleaming gold-and-glass accents catch the eye, and a perfume bar full of aromatic surprises awaits.

But it’s the one-of-a-kind art installation, made of hand-cut, delicate yellow feathers and iridescent acrylic sheets woven together, that draws shoppers in. Paris-based textile designer Janaïna Milheiro, who has done work for Hermès, Valentino and Guerlain, created the piece — a nod to legendary Las Vegas showgirls — to enhance the store’s sensory experience. Enjoy it while absorbing the style, scents and sophistication of Diptyque’s brand-new boutique.­
