Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale has officially kicked off, a hallowed time for serious fans of the department store. And, like last year, a deal is back for another brand that has quite the cult following: Diptyque. Until August 8, you can snag a mini set of five of their signature scents for 25 percent off. For a brand that rarely ever goes on sale (and especially rarely on their classic scents) this is a great deal.
If you are someone who balks at the idea of spending more than a couple bucks on a candle, this is clearly not the brand for you. But, for the initiated, Diptyque offers the ultimate indulgence with the flick of a match. This set offers five of the most popular scent, including the Apartment Therapy favorite (well, everyone's favorite), Baies. Blackcurrant and rose scented, somehow capturing the scent of a freshly cleaned room. The other candles are Roses (rose, of course), Tuberose, Figuier (fig tree), and Feu de Bois (wood fire).
The candles truly are mini—at about 1.23 ounces each, its similar to a shot glass. However, in total, it is 174.35 grams, which is actually pretty close to one full-sized Diptyque candle (190 grams), which retail for $65. If you're uninitiated to the church of Diptyque, this would also be a good sampler pack. The candles also come in adorable packaging, making it great for gifts.
You can sprinkle the candles in different rooms in the house, or keep them around the same place for different times of day. While the classic Baies, for example, is a good early morning scent, there's something about Feu de Bois that seems great for winter nights.
Still feel like this might be a litte too rich for your blood? A more economical set from Voluspa is also on sale for $16.
