Diptyque Christmas 2016: Une Nuit Chez Diptyque

A Night at Diptyque

On Tuesday morning I got to see the Christmas collections of lots of my favourite brands, but one that really stood out to me was Diptyque.

Diptyque always create limited candles for Christmas, but this year the range is truly exceptional. Inspired by a magical narrative entitled ‘A Night at Diptyque’, the collection has an air of The Nutcracker around it.

Here are some excerpts from the story that describe the scent within each candle…

UN ENCENS ÉTOILÉ

On the stage, an orchestra of fairies with smaller but equally splendid wings held tiny musical instruments in their hands.
They smiled at Henri, and began to play and sing.
At that point, the candle burned brighter and brighter still,
giving off an airy yet spice-tinged fragrance,
a combination of incense, elemi and cloves.

ÉPICES ET DÉLICES

Amidst a joyful swirl of colored paper, the “cooks” took the time
to explain their secret, one-of-a-kind recipe to Henri,
a blend of sparkling star anise, comforting cinnamon and warm notes of honey. The delicious aroma emanated from the oven. Henri savored the treat and was delighted.

LE ROI SAPIN

The incredible scent of a lush pine forest filled the air as the theater glistened like a thousand emeralds.

The candle glowed ever brighter, filling the room with the charming fragrance of resin, cedar and mysterious patchouli flourishes.
Mesmerized by the garlands shimmering lights, Henri drifted off to sleep, spellbound.

Tubereuse Candle, £TBC

This was one of my favourite things from the collection. When I was younger, we had an angel Christmas decoration that used to spin when you lit a candle under it. This is exactly what happens with this Tubereuse.

Advent Calendar, £TBC
Exclusive to Selfridges again this year, the Diptyque calendar is the ultimate gift. I got this for one of my best friends last year as her wedding gift. It didn’t say ‘advent’ or ‘Christmas’ on it anywhere and she got married on the 1st January, so I told them to have a new gift for every day of their new married life.

What makes this extra special this year is that it actually includes some of the limited Christmas candles. By contrast, last year the calendar contained only permanent lines.

Diptyque is available at Selfridges and lots of other stores, but where you will really feel the magic is at their stand alone stores so be sure to visit them this Christmas.
