My New Scent

This weekend I swung by the diptyque boutique on Madison for a momentary escape from the pre-issue-launch-madness. I fell in love with the fragrance above, ‘Eau Duelle’. It was “inspired by a voyage along the spice route” and has notes of bourbon and vanilla – so perfect for wintertime. I wore it out to dinner last night and I think it passed the test! Next I plan to treat myself to the ‘Ambre’ candle… I desperately wanted it as well, but I’m trying to pace myself!

Do you have a go-to Diptyque candle or fragrance? I’d love to hear!

    Oooh, I love indulgences like that. The wintery scent I have been loving is Atelier Cologne Aanille Insensée. Can’t wait for tomorrows issue!! xo

    I love Diptyque! I started with a rollerball of L’Eau de L’Eau and loved it- went to buy more and came home with 34 Boulevard St. Germaine- unbelievable! Mmm, so warm and sexy. The scent lasts so long on my skin but doesn’t seem to overpower my surroundings. You’ve got to try it. Love Diptyque!

    I’m currently obsessed with 34 Blvd. It’s heady, strong, and really rich. It’s amazing. Also love Oyedo. Much lighter and more playful.

    I have to go back this week and try all of your recommendations! I smelled the 34 Blvd candle and loved it – didn’t realize there was a fragrance too?! I’m in trouble… :)

    YES! to Do Son – I’ve worn it for 3 years now, in Spring-Summer. It’s my favorite (along with Invasion Barbare by MDCI in Fall-Winter) – equally fresh & mysterious, lots of Indochine greenery & tuberose, elegant & a little gamine – would likely be perfection on you, m’dear!

    I like Eau Duelle and carry the solid version of it in my handbag, but I adore Volutes, which is like a glam older sister to it: similar but richer and…different. In summer, I like to wear Philosykos.

    Have had the ‘Figuire’ scent candle in my home for going on 10 years. It’s my favorite scent. This Christmas I also got the ‘Feu de Bois’ scent and am digging it too.

    Katie,
    Love your style. Could you please tell me where you got the leopard print pillow that is behind the Diptyque bag?

    In LOVE with Diptique! I go between the solid Eau D’uelle and the springier Philosykos. And am hooked on the Coriandre candle :)

  10. chelsea horsley

    Yes!! Same scent:) It’s Chelsea Horsley from Instagram, although I’ve been a longtime reader here too. Thought I should say hello again. Isn’t Eau Duelle the best? I love that it’s warm and rich, but subtle too. I can’t get enough.

  11. Tina

    Yes! I love the Roses candle, never thought I was a floral girl, but there you go. Also really like the Feuille des Lavande candle. Getting inspired by the posts, didn’t even know there was a coriander candle.

  12. my favorite and my best- MFAMB to you

    my favorite diptyque is all of them.
    my favorite part is after i burn one down i stick my pens in there and when i pick up a pen to use it smells so damn good.
