It just isn’t Christmas in my home without a Diptyque candle on the go, and the Diptyque Moonlit Fir (Sapin de Nuit) Candle is the perfect example of why their wonderfully festive offerings are absolute essentials for this time of the year. I feel like I often underestimate the powerful impact of a really lovely candle; at the moment, I’m still isolating with my son (been pretty much that way since March) and it would be so easy to feel trapped, but when I dim the lights, light a gorgeous candle and watch a festive film, my home becomes an inviting haven of safety rather than a prison keeping me from seeing my family. I’ve been burning candles constantly for the last few weeks, and it really does make my house a home. Anyway, back to the Diptyque gorgeousness!
Diptyque are just one of those brands, aren’t they? Full of charisma and charm, providing home prettiness that’s totally unnecessary but absolutely essential. I have a bit of Diptyque in every room, and I’m not ashamed to admit that just having it there makes me feel better; they’re like the ultimate acknowledgement that you definitely do deserve to treat yourself, and the Winter Collection is full of festive joy, so entirely justifiable for this time of the year.
As usual there are three candles in the Winter Collection, and I have the Moonlight Fir Candle which is so fresh and clean and bright and lovely. The three key fragrance notes are Pine, Eucalyptus and Peppermint, so as you can imagine, it provides a woody burst of crisp fragrance that’ll take you to your nearest, snow-dipped forest, with fresh and icy air to breathe and crunchy leaves beneath your feet. It’s inspired by “the invigorating beauty of an aromatic forest” which is accurately represented in the candle fragrance.
Just when you thought you couldn’t love Diptyque any more, there are animals all over their Winter candles, so swans and lions on the other two in the collection and beautifully drawn deers on Moonlight Fir. There’s also a black lid included with the 190g candle so great for keeping it clean when not in use. All three candles are available in two sizes: 70g for £32 and 190g for £58. There’s also a set of all three of the smaller candles available for £92, which would make the loveliest gift.
