Diptyque’s holiday collection is the stuff of legends

WHEN IT COMES TO HOLIDAY, IS THERE A BRIGHTER SPARK THAN DIPTYQUE? THE LEGENDARY FRENCH PERFUMER HAS OUTDONE ITSELF AGAIN THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, WITH SENSORY TREASURES FOR EVERYONE.

When it comes time for gift giving, nothing holds a candle to treats from Diptyque. Its annual limited-edition holiday collections are synonymous with the season, illuminating the home with their charming designs and festive scents among the fairy lights and mistletoe.

For its 2018 collection, Diptyque evokes the wonder of childhood through folkloric tales brought to life by Parisian illustrator Pierre Marie—his third collaboration with the brand. Highly regarded in the twin worlds of fashion and interior design, Marie is known for combining ornamentation with storytelling and for designing Hermes’ iconic scarves for over a decade.

For “Legend du Nord”, the artist worked closely with writer Ahmed Terbaoui to create a winter tale that would form the basis of the designs, a captivating story that could be shared with friends, family and children. Each candle is said to have magical powers and represent a spirit from the legend—a bear, a deer and a mermaid—in both scent and design, with hero notes of almond, pine, and amber feeling right at home during the holiday season.

Ever a source of wit and wonder, the Paris perfumer has also created a colossal Feu de Bois candle in a gilded ceramic vessel, miniature treats, a decadent 25-piece Advent calendar and an enchanting candle accessory that rotates like a pinwheel from the heat of the flame. As some of the most sought-after tokens of the season, be sure to snatch them up quickly before they’re gone with the wind.
