Diptyque Room Sprays in Baies and Figuier

April 10, 2015

Diptyque is my all time favorite for home fragrance. They are quite a splurge but once I tried one, nothing else seemed quite as good. I have quite a few loves from other lines including Henri Bendel, Jo Malone, Byredo and Cire Trudon, but my heart belongs to Diptyque. In addition to the candles, there are a number of other ways to enjoy Diptyque scents. I’ve been enamored with their room sprays which come in a selection of fragrances. Right now I have the Room Sprays ($65 each for 150 ml / 5.1 fl oz) in Baies and Figuier in rotation.

Both come in a sleek and sturdy glass jar with a black spray top. The scents are almost identical to the candle versions. The room spray version of Figuier is a bit more green compared to the candle and a bit stronger in scent. I find this one perfect year round but especially love it for spring. It lifts the mood and makes the entire room smell like lush sweet figs with just one spray. It’s very strong so you only need two spritzes.

The room spray version of Baies is slightly sharper and sweeter compared to the candle but still also very strong (in my experience it’s stronger than the candle). This one is more feminine to my nose but is still neutral enough that I can spray this without having to feel like it’s too girly. This one is has a more afternoon or evening feel. It’s not deep or dark, but it’s not quite as light as Figuier. I love this one and am on my third bottle.

The Diptyque Room Sprays are both strong in scent. The fragrance won’t last as long as burning a candle but the sprays will fill the entire room with just one spritz for a quick refresher and in my home I find the scent will linger and last for a few hours. Right now being a Diptyque fan, I can’t pick between the sprays or the candle, they are both quite beautiful. I do think the scent of a burning candle will last longer but the sprays are quite strong so they do last surprisingly well.

For those new to Diptyque, many have asked what my favorites are. My top picks for Diptyque rotate on an ongoing basis. Figuier remains at the top of my list almost always, but right now I’m also loving the Tomas Maier + Diptyque Palm Beach (review here), Cuir (boutique exclusive, reviewed here) and the classic Baies.

There are a number of different places to buy Diptyque. I purchase mine from several different stores depending on promos, gift with purchases or availability of special edition releases. My top picks to shop Diptyque are Nordstrom (for quick and reliable shipping) and also any of the Diptyque Boutiques because the staff at the stores I’ve visited are really helpful and know the line well. The customer service at the boutiques is truly phenomenal. They are always patient, very friendly and can answer any questions you have. Features on a few stores I’ve visited linked for Maiden Lane, South Coast Plaza (my favorite) and Larchmont. Each time I visit a store I always discover new things. I like that they don’t pressure you to purchase anything (although I always manage to leave with a purchase) and everyone is always pleasant to chat with.

If you’re a Diptyque fan I think you will really like the Room Sprays. I hope that Diptyque will carry more scents eventually, I know they did a long time ago. Right now you can find the room sprays in Baies, Figuier, Amber and 34. Available at Diptyque Boutiques and and Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Space NK.

What’s your favorite home fragrance right now?

    These are both lovely scents. My spring/summer favourite is Cire Trudon Balmoral and I plan to get Byredo's Carrousel soon, it's my most recent obsession.

    I am sure these are fabulous but I just ♥ burning candles-the best of both worlds mixing fragrance with ambiance☺ I have to say the Diptyque Palm Beach still entices me! As does the new Beverly Hills. Hmmm.

    You and Beauty Professor are the only beauty blogs I can think of who give this kind of spotlight on niche home and personal fragrance without soley appealing to hardcore fragrance collectors. 🙂

    I've smelled Philosykos but not Figuier – how does the figgy-ness translate in the latter versus the former?

    Also, what is your experience with either the DIPTYQUE Baies or Roses Hourglass scented room diffusers? (here: Maybe this is because I'm partial to modernist style (my room mate visited a friend in LA whose "very Swedish mother had a very Swedish modern house" that would be my grown-up Barbie dream home), but the design makes me wonder about the longevity of the scent formulation for the diffuser versus the sprays…

    I absolutely love the Baies candles! Definitely going to give the home fragrances a sniff next time, I'm especially interested in the Figuier spray ❤

    I keep the Figuier spray in my office at work. I wanted the glass diffuser bec it's beautiful but reviews on it were not particularly good.

    Hey –

    Diptyque sprays are gorgeous! I have Baies, Figuer, Opopanax, 34, and Pomander. Baies is my favorite…I never get tired of it.

    Also have a spray from 5th & Madison Candles in the scent called, "Linen." It too, is lovely and more of an everyday scent.

    Still, Baies rocks my socks!

    Happy weekend to all.
