Diptyque Paris Christmas Collection

This year, like the past two years, my family have decided to do secret Santa. We got to the point a few years ago where were were buying so many gifts for so many people that we started a maximum £5 rule. The problem there is that we then received not very nice presents. So now we do secret Santa, so we all get one present (maximum £30), but one present that we really want and will love. 

Talking about things we want and love… (see what I did there?) I recently went to the Diptyque store on Brook Street in London to see what they have in-store this Christmas. In this case I couldn’t wait until Christmas and already bought myself one… does anyone else get the shopping bug even more around Christmas time?! 

There are three ‘Arabian Nights’ themed candles; Sapin Doré, Amber Oud and Oliban. Sapin Doré is the one I fell in love with and ended up buying because it literally smells like a Christmas tree. I lit this and instantly felt cosy and excited for festive things. The candles come in a big and a small size at £45 and £25 and in a beautifully designed glass which I will be keeping to use for pretty storage when the candle burns out. 

If you’re buying for someone who likes candles and smelly things, then you literally can’t go wrong with Diptyque.

Have you had a sniff of these Christmas candles yet?

    after having a cheeky sniff in space nk and walking out without buying anything (the ultimate embarrassment)… I was wondering whether you could tell me whether the travel sized candles fragrance a room as well as the normal sized?

    Ah I keep being tempted by the Diptyque candles and these sound and look ah-mazing. I think my boyfriend would blow a fuse if he knew I spent such an amount on a candle but its so gorgeous! I think a trip to Space NK ‘alone’ is called for!

    I get candle crazy in winter! It’s so difficult to find ones that actually make the whole room smell though! These look amazing, Christmas colours but funky designs, may have to sneak these onto the Christmas list!

    The blogosphere is going crazy for these but I really could never justify spending £25 on a candle – its something that you will burn and will end up with a glass jar. Just seems too much for me.
