Alrighty folks, I had a nice piece about the Diptyque Hourglass Diffuser that was all set to publish today when poof! my blog disappeared. Thank you to those of you on Twitter and Facebook who helped me check! It was gone for almost a day, and here’s a tip for all bloggers amongst you – BACK UP! Quick, go do your backups now. I’ll wait.
Back? Ok, so I was going to tell you about this product that I’d had my eye on for the longest time. There was something about the hourglass aesthetic, the heavy glass containers and just the whole idea of a non-exposed home fragrance diffuser that captured my imagination.
I first saw this during the launch of the L’Eau du Trente-Quarte (which is a more musical, more romantic way of saying Water 34) and it had stuck in my mind ever since. It was so bad that at the end of last year, I sucked it up and bought me the Sablier (Hourglass) Home Diffuser in 34.
I love my home fragrances and I usually do scented candles, as many amongst you will know, but I’m always open to alternatives. The only alternatives I knew of was reed diffusers and you know what? I hate them. Hate! They look flimsy and are liable to fall over if you so much as look at them and the reeds gather dust like nothing I’ve ever known. So when I’m introduced to an enclosed, aesthetically pleasing diffuser, I fell.
The problem is that when you fall so hard for something this expensive, you want it to work. And you won’t stand for any truck if it doesn’t. Oh boy, Diptyque. You are in trouble 😛
