Covet: Frederic Malle Joyeux Noel Candle

hjoye-bo220_13bnphjoye_1

Frédéric Malle Editions de Parfums is one of my favorite fragrance houses. I own and love several fragrances from the collection, yet I’ve never splashed out on one of Editions de Parfums’ fragranced candles in their signature red containers—partly because they’re so costly, partly because I just wouldn’t be able to choose a scent.

As the Editions de Parfums website tells us, “Christmas is a family atmosphere: particular colors—mostly red & green, and a scent made of pine, amber, cinnamon and a touch of cotton candy. A few years ago, Dominique Ropion made an olfactory sketch of this unique December scent. Frederic Malle and him decided to ‘polish’ it to make it even more comfortable, diffusive, and to make it perform in a scented candle.”

Joyeux Noël is a limited edition. It sells for $95 (!) through the Editions de Parfums website and Frédéric Malle Editions de Parfums boutiques.
