Created in the early 60's by Christiane Gautrot an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The home of their venture was 34 boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. Fast forward through years of development, Diptyque has developed an extensive line of products however my favorite is their candle line.
Diptyque makes small, almost travel size candles up to large home size candles. Don't be fooled though, even the small candles will fill a room with absolute dreaminess.
Diptyque candles can change the entire mood of a room and the amazing part is candles can help change the mood of the individual. When I have had a difficult day, I relax in my bedroom and my favorites to help soothe how I feel is a combination of Jasmine, Tuberose, Freesia and Mimosa.
Above is the diptyque website and my suggestion is to start small as the candles are a bit pricey but you will be shocked at how long they last.
I will give you a list of my over all faves:
Jasmine, Tuberose, Mimosa, Freesia, Fig, Orange Blossom, Gardenia, Jonquille and Eucalyptus.
There are well over 50 scents available and it is just a matter of finding your favorites. I save Eucalyptus for when I have a cold or do not feel well and it is amazing, the other candles are my daily favorites. I love candles, perfumes and any body products made with the scent of white flowers. I have tried many of Diptyque products and not one disappoints, they are absolutely lovely, well made products you will thoroughly enjoy.
Diptyque candles and products are absolutely the best of the best. I have yet to find anyone who has tried them that does not absolutely love them and they make wonderful gifts. Choose a scent the gift recipient will love, get a clear cellophane bag, place the candle box in the middle and fill the bag with a bit of dried flowers, preferably the same scent as the candle and then tie it with a classic bow and you have a gift that anyone would love.
Diptyque candles are classic and the scents are absolutely unforgettable. Enjoy!!
