Diptyque Winter/Holiday 2010 Candles

One item on my must try holiday list is the new Winter/Christmas candles from Diptyque. All of these sound wonderful, but the Roasted Chestnut best of all. So far I've missed trying them and they are selling out fast.

The new candles are LE and the glass is decorated with original motifs inspired by the themes and intricate scissor work of the famous Wycinankis from Poland. Scents were inspired by childhood memories.

-Marrons Grilles (Roasted Chestnuts- blends the toasty accords of juniper and birch essences
with the sweetness of Tonka beans and the smoothness of vanilla… so your entire home smells
absolutely ambrosial.

-Benjoin ( Benzoin)-Somewhere between vanilla and caramel, its scent is sweet but not sugary. Laced with
a charismatic woody accord of patchouli and Indian cypriol, enhanced by the darker, more rustic
aspects of rockrose, it has the evocative power of an enchanted journey.

-Sapin(Pine)-Ethereal green notes of mugwort and galbanum, accented by the tangy
vivacity of eucalyptus, emanate from evergreen branches.

Christmas candles are $68. Find them at, , Barneys, and more.
