A couple of weeks ago saw me paying a visit to a Diptyque counter because I have a soft spot for their fragrances and candles and I saw from here that there was a 10 candle set released this year. Excuse me? 10 candles? Let me at them please!
Unfortunately, I found that it wasn’t sold here which left me feeling rather disappointed. But before I could leave the store, the cunning SA at Kens Apothecary BV2 told me that what they DID have was a 5 candle set. I spun around so quickly, I might have given myself whiplash.
Part of the Diptyque Christmas selection is a set of mini candles that was released to commemorate Diptyque’s 50th Anniversary. Each candle represents a scent created in each of the 5 decades commemorated, and they are the mini 35g candles with an approximately 12 hour burning time.
They come in a beautiful black and gold box and I picked it up because it’s a great way to sample a selection of Diptyque candles to see which I might like. Thus far, my experience has only been with 34 and whilst I like it, I wanted to see what else was on offer. If you have never tried anything from Diptyque but are wondering what the hell the hype is all about these luxury scented candles, then the box sets are the way to go. If you can get hold of the 10 candle set, all the better!
For Christmas however, there are 3 limited edition candles, one of which you see in the picture above. If candles and home fragrances are your thing, then boy, I just know we’re going to be friends 😀
