|Act 1- Un Encens Etoilé(Sparkling Incense)
|Act 2- Épices et Délices Candle(Delicious spices)
|Act 3- Le Roi Sapin Candle (The festive fir tree)
I love a good candle, especially during the holidays. This year Diptyqye’s holiday collection is based on the tale of Henri. Henri is a seller of this and that who gets snowed in one night and has to stay at the Paris shop where he works. As he waits out the storm he is visited by a candle fairy that introduces him to three special candles. You the viewer experience Henri’s magical night as a mini three act play.
The first act is the candle Un Encens Etoilé(Sparkling Incense) described as:
Fairies caroling, sparkling incense and crystalline elegance. A burst of dazzling elemi and spicy cloves mingle with mysterious swirls of incense and sweet vanilla. source
The second act is the candle Épices et Délices Candle(Delicious spices) described as:
An exclusive treat, a unique recipe of delicious spices. Warm gingerbread notes mingle with tasty honey laced in hints of star anise. source
The third act is the candle Le Roi Sapin Candle (The festive fir tree) described as:
Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches… The incredible smell of a lush, pine-laden forest steeped in the woody tones of resin, cedar and patchouli. source
All of the candles smell very nice on their own but I love burning all three together. Combined the trio smell divine as the notes of pine, ginger and cloves meld into a warm and soothing scent perfect the holidays.
Since I discovered Diptyque I’ve been impressed by the care and thought they put into their holiday collections. I found this year’s story even more endearing when I learned that Henri is an actual Diptyque employee. According to the Diptyque rep I spoke with Henri started with the original store on 34 Boulevard Saint-German in Paris when they sold fabrics, wall paper and other beautiful things picked up during the founders travels. You know this and thats. And he’s still there.
You can check out Henri and the enchanting night that inspired this year’s collection here.
Have a great week!
