Francophiles, rejoice. Diptyque is adding to its exclusive City Candles collection with a brand-new, long-awaited candle inspired by its birthplace, Paris. We here at Byrdie were the first to get our hands on the candle, which comes housed in a chic, moody-emerald glass jar. C’est beau! The scent is heady, clean, and elegant, centered around a chypre accord, composed of bergamot, moss, patchouli, and lavender. It’s hard to describe exactly what the candle smells like, so I paraded it around the Byrdie offices and asked my co-workers for their first impressions.
Below, some important sound bites:
“I’m transported down a street in Paris. It’s cold, and there are leaves on the ground.”
“It feels like a really expensive bed of roses that were delivered to me by my crush. I don't have one, but you know what I mean?”
“It smells expensive.”
“It reminds me of what a fancy department beauty store would smell like in the ’50s.”
“It’s making me feel nostalgic.”
“I think my grandma would like this. But I like it too.”
“Is it rose?” (No.)
There’s an extremely limited quantity available for four days only, so head over to Diptyque.com and snatch up this fancy Parisian candle faster than you can say bougie. Shop it and some of our other favorite Diptyque candles below:
