It has taken me a good few hours to start breathing again after seeing this beauty in the flesh. Dramatic? Perhaps. But I honestly don’t think a gift set has ever made me swoon quite as much as this.
It’s no surprise that Diptyque has had this effect on me. Every winter without a doubt I look forward to seeing their festive launches. The packaging of their limited edition Christmas candles are always a sight to behold and are absolute collectors items in my eyes (I’ve still yet to burn last years that I treated myself to as I just don’t want to ruin it)!
But this year’s Holiday Set of 12 Candles is really something quite special…
Firstly, just how beautiful is the graphic print on the box? Festive, luxurious and delicate. Inside are a collection of 12 mini (35mg) votive candles which range from floral, spicy, herbal and woody scents, perfect for keeping your home fragrant all year round.
One thing I love about this gift set is that it’s a great introduction into the Diptyque library of candle fragrances… I’d only previously smelt a handful of their scents but this has really allowed me to find new favourites – Benjoin for example I just can’t get enough of. It’s a woody fragrance that smells similar to caramel and vanilla with notes of patchouli and cistus. There are also the cult Diptyque scents of Feu De Bois (imagine the most gorgeous woody fireplace), Fig (need I say more) and Baies (a delicious warm, rosy blackcurrant).
In terms of cost this retails for £120, working out at just £10 a candle which is pricey but the most wonderful gift I’m sure any Diptqyue lover would adore to get their hands on!
