A Swoon Worthy Diptyque Candle

2/17/2016

No matter what shape or size Diptyque candles may come in, my love or them really knows no bounds. They've become one of my favourite items to collect and pop around the house in any nook that needs something special.

Therefore, whenever a new limited edition candle comes out I more than often jump at the chance to add it to my little collection, and when I saw the sickly sweet pink packaging of Diptyque's newest launch Rosa Viola - a special collaboration with Franco-British designer...

No matter what shape or size Diptyque candles may come in, my love or them really knows no bounds. They've become one of my favourite items to collect and pop around the house in any nook that needs something special.

Therefore, whenever a new limited edition candle comes out I more than often jump at the chance to add it to my little collection, and when I saw the sickly sweet pink packaging of Diptyque's newest launch Rosa Viola - a special collaboration with Franco-British designer, Olympia Le-Tan adorned with red lips and everything, I spent a little longer than usual lingering around the candle section in Space NK.

Clearly someone took note of this, as come Valentine's day I was presented with a bag full of goodies which, alongside an iced vanilla late and novelty kitten stickers - that boy knows me well, included a neatly wrapped parcel which I opened to find this inside!

The first thing that hits you when opening any box housing a Diptyque candle is the scent. They're so highly fragranced that even without burning, if you're sitting next to one you're going to be smelling it.

Rosa Viola is quite different from most Diptyque offerings with notes of roses, lipstick and the subtle warmth of leather all designed to come together to smell like the inside of a woman's handbag. Note: this is definitely not what my poor bag smells like.

To me it's sweet and feminine with a warm and inviting edge that prevents it from becoming too sickly. After walking into a room in which this had been burning for a few hours you'll be greeted with the cosy but fresh scent of roses which when combined with the more unusual additional notes makes for an intoxicating aroma.
