Every year Diptyque releases a collection of limited edition candles for the holidays. It’s usually a trio of scents. This year the one that calls out to me is Hiver (Winter), “a breath of smoky woods and roast chestnuts, enveloped in precious balms.”
The glass containers are designed by the artist collective Qubo Gas.
Hard to resist, no?
My “fragrance of the day” will be Atelier Cologne’s Sous le Toit de Paris. Are you wearing or reading anything French-inspired today?
