Diptyque Do Son Collection for Spring 2022

March 24, 2022

Diptyque Do Son Collection Spring 2022

Diptyque just launched their limited-edition Do Son Collection featuring their Do Son scent in beautiful special turquoise packaging. The Do Son Eau de Toilette is one of my favorite scents from the line with a beautiful mix of Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Marine Accord. I own it in multiple formats like the perfume, hand cream, and hair mist!

This spring’s limited-edition collection has Do Son in multiple variations, size options and sets. The packaging is stunning in the most beautiful shade of turquoise blue!

The Do Son Eau de Toilette and Hand Cream come in a Boxed Set ($120) with a travel sized perfume and full size hand cream. Both are also available for purchase individually ($45 for the hand cream, $75 for the 30 ml Eau de Toilette). I love the smaller sizes which makes them perfect for travel or the purse!

Eau de Toilette

The Do Son Eau de Toilette ($150) is available in the 100 ml size which has a nice lovely lightweight floral + marine accord mix. It’s not too strong on the tuberose which I actually love. To me it’s a unique floral that isn’t too flowery. Lasting power is medium on me.

Eau de Parfum

Diptyque Do Son Eau de Parfum

I tried the Do Son Eau de Parfum ($190, for 75 ml) for the first time a few weeks ago in the Diptyque store in Miami. I almost always prefer the EDT format for scents when both the EDT and EDP formulas are available. I was pleasantly surprised by the Eau de Parfum! It’s stronger on the tuberose notes. It has a mix of Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Amber Wood. It’s richer in feel with stronger floral notes. It’s hard to pick a favorite but now that I’ve tried the parfum, I think I like it more!

Tubereuse Candle

Diptyque’s version of the candle is Tubereuse ($78). I love this one for a lovely fresh and green kind of floral. The turquoise glass jar is so beautiful, it brings life to my home office with the color!

Coffee Table Book

Diptyque has launched another book! The Do Son Coffee Table Book ($120) is a large sized book with photographs and illustrations inspired by the Do Son universe. As the ultimate Diptyque collector I bought it the minute it launched online (along with a couple other things). A week later I received a package from the Diptyque team with the full collection so now I have one for my office and one for our coffee table!

Diptyque Black Friday Baies 2021 + Favorite Candle Accessories

November 26, 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021 + Diffuser Review

The Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle is back! This year’s 2021 Limited-Edition Baies retails for $74. You can find it in Diptyque stores and online at Diptyque. This year’s candle has a beautiful design with lines of gold, black and white. It’s available for 4 days only while supplies last.

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

I love the little details including the black colored wax and the 2021 print on the back.

The Standard Baies Candle is one of my favorites with a rich mix of blackcurrant and rose. I have lost count of how many of these I’ve bought over the years in multiple sizes and scent forms. I’m particularly smitten with the Baies Room Spray ($68) as it’s quite strong and lasts a decent amount of time for a spray.

Hourglass Diffuser

Diptyque Hourglass Diffuser

Book / Vase / Speakers / Room Spray / Mini Candle

The Baies Hourglass Diffuser ($190 has been on my wishlist for years. I bought this as a gift last year for my bestie’s birthday as she loves all the decorative pieces from Diptyque. She said she loved it! I finally decided to buy one for myself and I love it too. Reviews are mixed but I think it has just the right amount of throw. Scent is diffused when you turn it around for the liquid to fill the room. The diffusion cycle lasts about an hour making it easier to control when you want the scent on.

Reed Diffuser

Diptyque Reed Diffuser

3-Wick Black Candle / Acrylic Case with Gardenia / Aesop Book / Tom Ford Book

This holiday Diptyque launched a Reed Diffuser ($190) which comes in a boxed set including a glass diffuser jar, refill bottle, funnel and six rattan reeds. The Diptyque team kindly gifted one and I think it’s a beautiful home accent piece. The throw is very potent and with this one there is a continuous scent that fills the room. Refills are also available for $95.

Some of you asked me which one I prefer and I would say it’s a tough pick. They’re both different and unique in their own way! A few of my readers messaged me saying they have both and prefer the Hourglass version as you can control the scent diffusion time when you turn it and it’s not too overpowering. I think they summed it up perfectly. I prefer the Hourglass too although if you want something more continuous and want to splurge opt for the Reed Diffuser.

Diptyque Photophore

Diptyque Photophores Coast

Marble + Brass Tray / USB Lighter / Vase

I thought I’d highlight a few more of my favorite candle accessories!

One of my favorite things Andrew has gifted me is a Diptyque Photophore. He bought one for me while on a trip and I’ve had it for over a decade! I’ve since added a few more to my collection and love the Coast Photophore in the Large ($106) and Small size ($85). They are made of thick torch-blown glass and I find them very sturdy. A black stand is also included.

Candle Accessories

Diptyque Wick Trimmer and USB Lighter

A Wick Trimmer is essential and I love that more candle companies are making these. The Diptyque Wick Trimmer ($40) is one I’ve owned for many years and it has held up really well. I also bought a few USB Lighters and as one who doesn’t really like matches I find this perfect. There’s less smokey, less mess and it’s easier to use. Also think this one is interesting too!

Match Cloche

Skeem Design Match Cloche

Vase / Tray / USB Lighter

Many of you may remember this Skeem Design Match Cloche from last year. The glass is on the thin side so I find it delicate but it has held up well and I haven’t had any issues with it breaking. I think it makes for a beautiful accent piece or gift! You can find it in a variety of colors, sizes and finishes.

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Picks

September 13, 2021

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Review

Diptyque launched a 5-piece collection to celebrate their 60th Anniversary with their Le Grand Tour Collection. Each item is inspired by a different destination. As the ultimate Diptyque lover I ordered 4 of the 5 items immediately and have been completely obsessed. I love the special editions from Diptyque. If you’re in New York they have a Pop Up for the collection from September 10 through October 10th. I ordered all the items except for one of the perfumes. If you have smelled it let me know what you thought!

The design of each item has special meaning to the city the product is named after. I found it really interesting to read more about it on their Virtual Walkthrough page.

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Review

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Review

Paris Candle

Diptyque Paris Candle Le Grand Tour | The Beauty Lookbook

The Paris Le Grand Tour Candle ($105) is the standard 190 g size and comes with a sculpted wood lid. This has a beautiful earthy woody soft feel perfect for fall, but I really think it’s good for year round. Throw is on the softer side but still noticeable in our home. I do think other scents have a stronger more potent throw, but this one is still very good. It also comes with a lid which is different from their Standard Black Lacquered Candle Lid ($28).

Notes include: Myrrh, wood patina accord, Paris stone accord

If you’re a Diptyque fan you probably already own the Paris City Candle (part of their City Candle Collection). The notes in the Paris Le Grand Tour Candle are different from the Paris City Candle. The latest Le Grand Tour is more earthy and woody while the City version is a brighter but mellow floral. I love both even though they’re very different.

Venise Eau de Toilette Trio

Diptyque Venise Trio Le Grand Tour Collection

Perfume can be so hit or miss so I ordered the one I knew I would like. I love vetiver so I ordered the Venise Travel Trio ($95) and absolutely love it. This has a similar but greener vibe compared to the Le Labo Edition Hotel scents (which have black tea, green tea and tobacco leaves). The Diptyque Venise perfume is a lovely green vetiver kind of perfume with good lasting power. I wish this were permanent! I may buy a backup of this since I know the travel sizes will be used up in no time for me.

Notes: basil, green bell pepper, vetiver

Milies Scented Oval

Diptyque Milies Scented Oval

I’ve owned a few of the scented ovals from Diptyque and the lasting power isn’t the best but I still think they’re beautiful. Milies Scented Oval ($70) has a really potent fig scent that reminds me of their Figuier Candle scent, but a little sweeter. I think the design and accent beads are beautiful. In my experience the scent fades after a few months – they still make nice accent pieces though!

Notes: Immortelle absolute, ambroxan, fig wood accord

Byblos Candle

Diptyque Byblos Candle

The Byblos Candle ($165) comes in a beautiful marbled clay vessel inspired by wisps of coffee smoke. It’s a nice fresh and spicy kind of scent with incredible throw. This comes in the 300 g size which is same size as the Glass Colored Candles.

Notes: coffee, atlas cedar, white musk

I’m still debating whether or not to order the Kyoto Perfume – the notes sound really beautiful but I am unsure of buying it without smelling it first. Now that it’s sold out at Diptyque and Nordstrom I kinda want it now! (Still available at Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Net-A-Porter.)

I’m really happy with all the items I purchased and have no regrets buying sight unseen. I ordered mine online from Diptyque but the collection is also available at other retailers like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and all other Diptyque retailers. If you’re ordering online at Diptyque make sure you check their Exclusive Special Offers page for gift with purchase options!

Diptyque Black Friday Baies 2020 | The Beauty Lookbook

It’s here! The Diptyque Limited-Edition Baies Candle 2020 ($74) has launched from 11/27 to 11/30 while supplies last. For the past three years they have launched a special design for their best selling Baies candle and this year’s design is beautiful! It comes in a black glass jar in the Classic 190 g size. The design is embossed printed onto the black jar (versus a sticker). It has black wax and has the special 2020 mark labeled on the back. This Black Friday 2020 Baies Candle is available at Diptyqueparis.com.

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2020 | The Beauty Lookbook

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2020 | The Beauty Lookbook

Baies is my most burned candle in my home. It has a beautiful unique mix of berries, blackcurrant and rose with a slightly green undertone. I love that it’s sweet but not sugary sweet. Both Andrew and I adore this in the candle, large candle and spray versions. We’ve tried a number of room sprays and while they won’t last as long as a candle or diffuser the Diptyque room sprays are among the strongest we have bought.

Diptyque Coloring Spring

April 29, 2020

Diptyque Coloring Spring 2020

I’m so excited to share a look at the Diptyque Coloring Spring collection today. As one of the biggest fans of Diptyque I could not be more thrilled to see some beautiful limited-edition jars for spring. They’re currently exclusive online to Diptyque and (update) now as of May 11th available at Nordstrom! I have a look at each one as I ordered them the day they launched. There are five options in Iris, Geramium Rosa, Freesia, Mimosa and Choisya and retail for $74 each. All of the scents are available in the standard clear glass jars as well.

I know that buying scents without smelling them in person first is always tricky. While I do have a Diptyque counter near me, they don’t carry all the scents that the individual Diptyque stores do so I’m often buying blind. Especially now with everything closed with stay at home orders, everything is online only! There’s no substitute for being able to try in person but I hope this will will be the next best thing to help with some descriptions!

Iris

Diptyque Coloring Spring Iris Candle

Iris a new one for me and I think it will be a new favorite. It’s a sweet iris blossom with notes of violet that has a soft warm powdery feel to it. Throw is good but soft and gentle.

Geranium Rosa

Diptyque Coloring Spring Geranium Rosa

Geranium Rosa is one of the cleanest green scents I’ve ever tried. I’ve burned this one numerous times in the past and it smells like geraniums. Fresh, green, a bit spicy. There are supposed to be rose notes in this one but I can’t detect them very well.

Freesia

Diptyque Coloring Spring Freesia

Freesia is new to me as well and my second favorite in the launch. It’s a well rounded floral that isn’t too powdery or too sharp. It has a soft relaxing vibe to it which I think is going to be the most universally appealing floral.

Mimosa

Diptyque Coloring Spring Mimosa

Mimosa seems to be everyone’s favorite (next to Baies). I love the soft but bright yellow jar – it brightens the mood and makes the whole house smell like a warm honey-like flower. It has a bright feel to it which is hard to describe but has a warm clean feel, almost like velvet but fresh and soft.

Choisya

Diptyque Coloring Spring Choisya

Choisya is another newer one for me. I have burned this in a mini in the past from sets but it has been a while since I tried it. This one is the botanical name for Mexican orange blossom. It has a fresh green feel to it and smells like orange blossom leaves. This smells like nature to me!

Diptyque Coloring Spring Collection

Each candle comes with a coordinating box to match the color of the glass jar. I love the little detail flower prints inside! They add a special touch.

Out of the five my favorites are Freesia, Mimosa and Iris, but all of them are really nice. As a die-hard Diptyque fan these were worth the splurge for me even though they are available in the standard clear glass jars. They brighten the home and lift the mood!

You can find the Diptyque Coloring Spring collection while supplies last online at Diptyque and Nordstrom. They retail for $74 each.

Favorite Fancy Candles for the Holidays

December 18, 2019

Best Fancy Candles from Diptyque, Cire Trudon and Byredo

There’s nothing quite like a good bougie candle to make your home feel extra fancy, warm and cozy all at the same time. By popular request I have an updated favorites roundup for the holiday season! My tried and true favorites remain the same with my top three favorite brands being Diptyque, Byredo and Cire Trudon. Many of these I started burning in late fall and will continue using many of these through early spring.

Diptyque

Best Diptyque Candles

1. Diptyque Baies is in my top three favorites and this one is my most burned, repurchased and recommended candle ever! It has notes of rose and blackcurrant, it smells like berries and rose to me. I’ve bought this in almost all the different sizes. If you are new to Diptyque this is the one I recommend to everyone.

2. Diptyque Feu de Bois is one of the best firewood smokey scents. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it always feels like Christmas to me! It smells warm and cozy.

3. Diptyque Vanille is a smokey vanilla. It’s not your typical sweet gourmand vanilla. It’s almost like a leather smokey kind of vanilla that has a warm vibe.

4. Diptyque Ambre is my favorite amber scent. It has the perfect mix of wood, vetiver and patchouli with a hint of spice. It’s another warm one – I bought the large colored glass version a few years ago and found it a lot more potent than the standard size (which is still very good).

5. Diptyque Santal is the best sandalwood candle. It’s not too strong or spicy and is perfect year round.

I bought the Mini Carousel Set and standard size Lucky Charm carousels last year and love them! They usually have them out only during the holiday season. Both are still available right now at Nordstrom.

Cire Trudon

Cire Trudon Christmas

6. Cire Trudon Ernesto is the best candle of all time to me. It’s a magical mix of leather and tobacco – but I find it hard to describe. I have yet to try all the Cire Trudon candles (I have also tried minis of Positano and Rose Poivree which were lovely!). They’re the most expensive candle splurge I’ve made for the home in past years. Every Christmas they launch special edition packaging for a selection of scents. The Cire Trudon team was generous enough to send this year’s for review and it’s GLORIOUS! I have the Classic size but it also comes in two larger options.

7 / 8 / 9 Cire Trudon Gabriel, Nazareth and Fir have been on my radar for years but every time I’ve decided to buy one I always go back to Ernesto. They have a beautiful Odeurs D’Hiver Christmas Trio which is boxed in the most beautiful packaging I have ever seen. Every candle in the box is carefully packed with inserts around the edges and also in the top to protect the wick/wax. Gabriel is glorious mix of leather, chestnut and wood. Nazareth is a mix of clove, oranges and cinnamon (smells like Christmas!). I’ve always been more of a pine lover for Christmas scents but Cire Trudon Fir is so unique and sweet while still being very green.

Byredo

Best Byredo Candles

10. Byredo Tree House is my favorite one from the line. When I first smelled it years ago I actually did not like the way it smelled straight out of the jar. It wasn’t until I smelled it burning in their New York store that I decided to give it a try. It has the most amazing mix of cedar, bamboo, sandalwood, guaiac wood, hay, spice, myrrh and labdanum. It’s warm and cozy with wood and spice mix.

11. Byredo Bibliotheque is almost like a smoky candle version of Bal D’Afrique perfume to me. It’s not as sweet but to me it has a similar vibe that is so unique and unlike anything else I’ve tried. Even the little one has amazing throw.

Room Sprays

Aesop Room Spray Trio Set

12. Aesop Room Sprays – For those who cannot burn candles room sprays are a great alternative. I’m completely obsessed with all the Aesop Room Sprays and was thrilled to find they launched a mini trio this holiday! I’ve also loved Diptyque Baies and 34 Boulevard St. Germain sprays as well for our home. I’ve been dying to try one from Byredo but haven’t yet.

Diptyque Roses Collection: Centifolia + Damascena Candles

February 11, 2019

Diptyque Valentine's Day Roses Candles Centifolia and Damascena Review

Every year I look forward to the Diptyque Roses Collection they launch for Valentine’s Day. This year they launched two new limited-edition candles called Centifolia and Damascena, available in a few different forms:

  • Individually in the full size ($72 each for 6.7 oz)
  • Individually in the small sizes ($36 each for 2.46 oz)
  • Also in a Small Candle Duo Set ($72)

The jars are frosted tinted glass with the prettiest rose patterns on the exterior. Nothing would have stopped me from buying these and I bought these sight unseen just for the packaging.

Diptyque 2019 Roses Candles Centifolia and Damascena Review

As much as I love Diptyque I don’t consider myself a pure rose fragrance lover. I do really like the rose notes when it’s blended with other notes like it is in their Baies candle. Same goes for many perfumes that I love and wear. For me rose is best when it’s blended with something other than floral notes. If you love all things floral and true pure rose then these will be perfect for you. Alone I found these very strong, floral and powdery. I do think they are beautiful but they’re not my favorite. The Mini Duo Set seems to be sold out most places but this morning I still saw it in stock at Barney’s New York. You can still buy the mini sizes individually.

Diptyque Roses Candles Centifolia and Damascena Review via The Beauty Look Book

Centifolia is the softer variation and out of the two, I like this scent the most. It has the tiniest bit of spice to it and I found it really interesting to read more about the flower itself, per Diptyque, the flower is from the “Grasse region of France since the 16th century, the Centifolia rose is also called the May rose for the month in which it is harvested. It comes by its Latin name (centum=one hundred + folio=leaf) because of its profusion of petals, said to number one hundred.”

The Beauty Look Book Diptyque Valentine's Day Roses Candles Centifolia Review

Damascena has a beautiful color combination of the bright pink and orange. This one is very potent, floral, powdery and sweet. I found it a little too overwhelming for my taste. If you love pure rose scents you will absolutely adore this!

The Beauty Look Book Diptyque Valentine's Day Roses Candle Damascena Review

Top from Abercrombie, Nail Polish is Opi Rice Rice Baby

Diptyque Valentine's Day Roses Candles Centifolia and Damascena Review

I have no regrets purchasing both. I will burn them to the end but will most likely combine with another scent like Baies or something woodsy like Byredo Tree House. Compared to previous limited-edition rose candles Diptyque has launched I find these two to be more of a pure powdery floral rose while previous years seem to be a little bit sweeter and softer.

The jars will be used to recycle for me as well. A quick note on the frosted glass jars if you’re new to recycling them – I’ve owned a few others in the white frosted glass and the finish can be a little delicate. I’d definitely recommend you take care with the exterior when cleaning as they can wear off or scratch off if you use a stiff sponge. It’s not so delicate that you have to baby it, but if you want to recycle, after your first burn, make sure you trim your wicks with a Wick Trimmer before you burn to avoid burning the sides or tops.

To clean them and recycle after they’re done burning I take a small butter knife and remove the metal circle that’s at the base if it hasn’t popped out already. To clean the sides I soak hot water and dish soap and wipe out with a paper towel. I repeat until wax is completely gone. Don’t use boiling water as it can crack the glass. Hot water from the tap works just fine to soften any residue and the soap helps clean the sides. Anytime I recommend this method someone without fail tells me freezing them is the better method but it has never worked for me.

Bottom line beautiful and romantic! I just think some scents are best when layered or blended with other notes, with these I prefer them when burned with something else. I still think they’re gorgeous, they’re just not my absolute favorites.

The Diptyque Roses Collection is limited-edition. They have other options including the scented ovals, scented liners and more. You can find Diptyque Centifolia and Damascena candles out now while they last. I bought mine from Nordstrom. Also available at Diptyque, Space NK, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Barney’s New York and all other Diptyque retailers.

P.S. Right now there’s a cute GWP available at Diptyque, I’m not sure how long it will be available but just wanted to let you know. Also Space NK’s beauty bag event is coming up soon!

 

 

Have you tried these yet? What did you think? Do you love rose notes or prefer it blended with something else?
