Diptyque Candles

As most of you know if you follow me on Instagram, I love candles and Diptyque
candles are definitely my faves. I get asked a lot on Instagram what ones I own and what ones I recommend. So I thought it was time I did a post, not only to talk about what my
favorite scents are but why I love them so much!

Diptyque
first opened its doors in Paris on 34 boulevard Saint-Germain in 1961. It was
started by three friends, all with backgrounds in décor and fine arts. Diptyque
perfumes, candles and home fragrances are now sold around the world in many
department stores and shops, including many flagship boutiques throughout
Europe and the US. I wish they would open one here in Toronto! 

Besides
loving so many of the different candle scents Diptyque offers, I must admit I
was first drawn to the black and white label and package design. I know I have
mentioned this in a couple of my instagram posts, but for those of you that
don’t know I took a package design course along with a font design course in
College. I have always been a sucker for beautiful labels, fonts and packaging
especially in black and white, the simpler the better.

If
you are in Canada or the US, Saks, Holt Renfrew and Neiman Marcus all carry
Diptyque. If you don’t live in Canada or the US Click HERE to find a
location that carries Diptyque.

I
suggest going in and smelling all the scenes yourself so you can get a real
feel for the line and pick scents that you love and feel go well together. Most
of the candles burn really well together and bring out the fragrances of each
other. 

But
of course if you just want to order online and trust my tastes I would highly
recommend getting the Set of Mini Candles with Baies, Figuier and Roses. It is
a great set for a new collector (also makes for a great gift!) they are
probably the 3 most popular scents and they are 3 of my faves especially
Figuier! I also own the Figuier room spray.  

Other
scents I recommend are Jasmin, Tubéreuse, Mimosa – it’s seriously AMAZING – and
Geranium Rose, all floral scenes. I have always navigated towards fresh floral
fragrances in both my candles and perfumes. My two favorite
flowers are Lilly of the Valley and Lotus, which I first smelled when I was in
Egypt as the Lotus is their national flower. If you have not smelled it before
I highly recommend it!

Other
great Diptyque candles are Patchouli, Ambre and Feu de Bois. I also recently
got Oud as a gift and though it’s not a scent I would usually choose it’s
growing on me, it’s very woody.

Last
but not least my final Diptyque candle recommendation is from the 34 Collection
and it is called 34 Boulevard Saint Germain. It was created to celebrate their
50th anniversary and encapsulates the scent of their first boutique.
It is seriously a beautiful scent both floral and woody to me. It also comes in
a beautiful white oval-shaped porcelain jar which I think would look amazing in
any home on your coffee table, side table or mantel. It makes for a great gift
for yourself or someone else!

I
really do hope you liked this post and for those of you who have asked me about
my favorite Diptyque candles and what ones I own, I hope this has answered all
your questions. For those of you that are new to Diptyque and were curious I
also hope this post has helped and maybe you might check them out!

I
now think Diptyque should hire me! Haha

Thank
you all so much for reading!
