|Diptyque Rose Delight (6.5 oz/$68)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
This years Diptyque special edition rose candle is Rose Delight. It’s described as a mix of rose petals, honey and lemon zest, and was inspired by the dessert Turkish delight. The lemon note is the most prominent to me. The throw on this is strong without being cloying. There’s also a powder like quality to the scent that makes it very soothing. It’s a great bedtime candle. I think a Rose Delight bath oil with the same notes would be amazing. And that’s coming from a girl that prefers showers to baths.
The packaging for these special edition candles is usually lovely and this year was no exception. Although like most Diptyque fans I’d love for them to offer another hand painted candle like they did with Rosa Folia pictured above. I think Rose Delight would be a good option for any one looking for a unique take on a classic rose scent. The standard 6.5 oz I have pictured is still available at Nordstrom (here) and online at (here).
