If You Love Diptyque Candles, You’ll Want the Brand’s Unique Product I Use Every Day
When it comes to gift giving, I’m firmly in the “surprise and delight” camp every time. I always want my gifts to get lots of use, but I also want them to be items the recipients would never think to buy for themselves. That’s where Diptyque comes in (and always seems to come in, for that matter). The storied French luxury fragrance company that’s known for their high-end candles and beloved, fan-favorite scents (Baies, anyone?) is always my go-to candle brand to gift. (To others and myself, to be clear!)
But if you have any Diptyque lovers on your holiday wish list this season, or in general for year-round gifting occasions, allow me to introduce you to their under-the-radar product that’s the best of both worlds when it comes to unique self-care items and little luxuries: Their hair mist, or as I like to call it, hair perfume. That’s right: If you love Diptyque’s scents, you can actually smell like one with the Eau des Sens Hair Mist.
Let me back up — I first found out about this product when I was an editor at another publication testing beauty products. Diptyque’s Eau des Sens Hair Mist came across my desk one day, and I was a convert from the start for a few reasons. The first was that I wasn’t really into wearing perfume anymore. I couldn’t find one I loved that also wasn’t super overpowering and didn’t give me headaches all day. I still wanted to be able to mist something delicate on when I felt like it, though, and not fear the smell being too overwhelming. Even better was that I already loved their candles, and this seemed like a very natural inclusion in their product offerings, with the description noting that the mist “fortifies, beautifies and perfumes the hair, and is enriched with camellia oil.” I was excited to know I could smell like my favorite candle company and find a perfume workaround, too. (It also looks so pretty on a vanity or desk!)
The first time I tried it, I was hooked. Now it’s been about five years and I use this hair mist nearly every day. I spritz a pump or two on my hair in the morning, fluff it up a bit, and that’s it! I may do another in the evening if I’m going out and want a refresh. It feels incredibly light and not overpowering at all. But when I do catch a whiff, it’s very subtle and I can sense a few bright, citrus-y, zesty notes — and that’s something that anyone would love, n’est-ce pas?
