If you haven’t yet had the chance to stop by the recently opened Diptyque boutique at Yorkdale (the only standalone location in Canada), it’s the perfect spot to pickup a few last minute gifts. For the festive season the iconic French fragrance house has created a number of limited edition and special holiday presentations. Whether they already love the brand, or are discovering their favourite scent, these are presents that are sure to be appreciated.
The stars of the collection are three classic winter scents presented as candles, each with a Diptyque twist, resulting in three surprising and addictive olfactory experiences. To add some extra magic, these holiday special editions are presented in glass adorned with glow-in-the-dark stars. Available in Sapin (Pine Tree) with the woody fragrance of a pine tree decorated with freshly cut sprigs of mimosa for a sweet honeyed accent; Neige (Snow) showcases the downy, powdery harmony of heliotrope and white musks to evoke the delicacy and lightness of snow; and Étincelles (Spark) enchants in its burgundy red and the comforting scent of a warm wood fire softened by delicious notes of chocolate and coffee.
To accompany the glistening lights of the Holiday Collection, the classic large Baies Candle is reinvented for holiday gifting with a handmade black-enamelled vessel speckled with real gold to evoke the twinkling of the stars ($567). The reed diffuser is reinterpreted in an exclusive black lacquered oval with four handmade decorative glass rods for an elegant and graphic composition ($257, refill sold separately).
If you favour a perfume to a home fragrance, Eau Rose Eau de Parfum is specially adorned for the holiday season with faceted gold-tinted roses, bringing an extra touch of refinement to the now-iconic fragrance. Limited Edition Eau Rose Eau de Parfum, $270.
