Diptyque’s New Holiday Collection Smells Good Enough to Eat
Is there anything more delightful than opening a Diptyque candle? A friend of mine recently got engaged, and I promised myself I’d entertain the idea of a less-predictable gift to commemorate the occasion. However, after sifting through countless alternative recommendations online, the decision was as clear as the new diamond that graced her hand: It had to be a Diptyque candle. Yes, a monogrammed ice bucket or champagne flutes would have been lovely, but only a vessel from the iconic French candle company could infuse her home with an aroma that matched the very love, happiness, and romance she was feeling in this moment. I drove straight to the local boutique that carries the brand’s treasured scents, and after a lengthy deliberation process (you can’t go wrong with Diptyque’s best-selling Baies, but Roses felt right in this specific instance), I swiped my card, had the candle gift wrapped, and walked out with a bow on a bag that I couldn’t wait to hand over to the happy couple.
When it comes to the luxe, irresistible, and “I really shouldn’t” candle category, Diptyque is simply unmatched — and their exclusive scents are usually worth the splurge. (Did you know Diptyque also offers a hair mist?) The holidays are on the horizon, and the beloved brand is already making our wishes come true with its highly anticipated collection of winter-inspired aromas. These just-released candles are packed with all the quintessential notes of the season like pine, gingerbread, cinnamon, and more. This year’s trio includes three new enticing scents: Biscuit, Sapin (“fir” in French), and Flocon (“snowflake”). Whether placed in the entryway, on a hutch, side table, or floating shelf, I can’t wait to deck my halls out with each one (and you should, too!). The holidays are the perfect time to spend a little extra on those you love most, so if you’re looking for a special gift your recipient will put to good use, you can also snag all three in a limited-edition gift set.
