We have carefully selected our Top 5 scents from Diptyque, complimenting each taste.

Mimosa Small Candle

Family: Floral

In February in the South of France, on the Tanneron hills near Grasse, the mimosas are in bloom. Their sunny golden yellow color stretches as far as the eye can see, and their small velvety blossoms scent the air with velvety, delicately honeyed notes.

A profusion of spices and candied peels with the delicious scents of winter. As the holidays are near, oranges are pierced with scented cloves, filling the house with delicious spicy and fruity notes.

Cyprès / Cypress Small Candle

Family: Woody

A southern scene. A large grove of cypress trees on a late summer afternoon. Near the tall, slender green trees, the air is fresher and filled with the soft, resinous, almost honeyed accents of their needles.

Verveine / Lemon Verbena Small Candle

Family: Herbal

The scent of freshly picked whole lemon verbena leaves, crumpled in the palm of one’s hand. The fragrance escapes, soft yet lively with a delicate lemony zest. Soothing for the mind and body after a long day.

Baies / Berries Small Candle

Family: Fruity

The tangy coolness of freshly picked blackcurrant berries. A few black bunches still have their leaves, their green and aromatic scent blending with the lively, flowery accents of rose.
