Have you ever traveled to hong kong? What would you say Berlin? You can now visit some of the most majestic cities in the world, at least olfactorily speaking. And after spending years at home, traveling everywhere, even if only in the world of fragrances, sounds invigorating and hopelessly seductive. Luckily for us, Diptyque is relaunching its popular collection of urban candles for just one week — and just in time for a gift for mom for mother’s day.
While all candles from the ever-popular luxury Parisian brand are highly coveted as some of the best luxury candles this Earth has to offer, it’s their exclusive and extra fancy collectible drops that we want the most. Our favorite piece from this collection? Each candle is a total sensory tribute to their dedicated city – the vessels are adorned with designs or symbols that evoke the history of the city, such as Berlin Bauhaus pattern or The Illustrated Golden Dragon of Beijingwhile fragrance notes are common ingredients found locally.
Historically, Town Candles were only available in these specific towns, meaning you had to be prepared for Miami to pick up the emerald green votive adorned with a palm leaf cutout design, but with this revival you can go shopping everything City Candles online. And since the collection’s availability is limited, one of these chic numbers would make one of the best candle gifts you could donate, unless you plan to hop on a plane to each of the cities very soon.
The City Candle collection is made up of 10 vessels that are inspired by their namesake locations around the world — New York, Paris, London, Miami, beverly hills, Tokyo, Berlin, Shanghai and hong kong — as well as the new launch beijingwith notes from China’s imperial temples including magnolia blossom, green tea, sandalwood and cypress.
Grab the full range of City Candles fast as they’re only available until April 27 – and trust us, this collection is going to sell out in a New York minute.
