It is an annual revelation that makes many fans’ heart skip a beat: Diptyque Paris’ festive landing of the limited edition Christmas collection and gift sets. The Parisian perfume house is renowned for their high end, superb quality and beautifully designed scented candles. Plus, the candles are famous for being non-synthetic. Like every year, the range consists of three candles in three signature Christmas scents.
For the design, Diptyque teamed up with artist Ugo Gattoni who also designed many Hermes shawls. The collection, ‘The Marvelous Beasts’, depicts marvelous animals walking through a snow-covered Paris. The green candle is called Moonlit Fir and depicts a deer. The scent is an aromatic woody fragrance which reminds me of a frosted pine wood forest on a snowy night. The blue candle depicts a majestic swan and is called Amber Feather. The fragrance is powdery, mellow, with a warm amber accord, and hints of cinnamon and ginger, that makes you envision a crisp night and being cuddled up inside. The red candle depicts a fiery lion and is called Floral Majesty. It has a rosy, sweet and spicy scent.
As always, you can buy the individual candles in two sizes or all three in a Holiday Candle box set. The box in itself is also a collectors item with the stunning art by Ugo Gattoni. Tip: to create an exclusive Christmas ambiance, try burning all candles simultaneously. The mix of the different fragrances is wonderful and will linger on for hours.
