Two quick videos (one is below the jump) for the Diptyque Lucky Charms holiday collection (here and here). Then, a video from Marie Claire where someone just holds the candles up and twirls them so you can see the full designs (be warned: if you already sort of wanted one of the candles, this will cost you money). Then below that, an image of the limited edition candle lid that matches the collection.
From Diptyque, the limited edition Othoniel Rosa candle, made in collaboration with the artist Jean-Michel Othoniel (you can read more about his solo show, La rose du Louvre, here). It promises a peppery rose with vetiver and is sold in Diptyque boutiques around Paris and at the Diptyque France website, 190g for €60.

Add a rainstorm, pot of strong Assam tea or Mexican hot chocolate, a gingerbread cake right out of the oven, stacks of thick European design, gardening and fashion magazines, some seed catalogs, and cookbooks to read…and I’m set for hours of light-hearted enjoyment (before the denouement: a nap).
I’d like to introduce you to some candles I’ve discovered over the last several months; all of them have great, intense aromas.
