Diptyque’s duo candle sets will transport you to your dream holidays in Greece, Paris and beyond
A sentiment commonly uttered: the best things in life are free. See: the soundtrack to 1992 American crime comedy Mo' Money, one of Lonely Planet's many travel guides, as well as a brief (and revised) mention in Taylor Swift's "New Romantics".
Our take on it, while similar, differs. The best things in life come from the unexpected. Namely, the most unforeseen of combinations that just work; the list includes French fries with ice cream, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas (is the jury still out on this one?), as well as bucket hats with bum bags.
The latest addition to aforementioned list is renowned French label Diptyque Materials That Stir Emotions Collection. A collaborative effort with Maison Pierre Frey, the collection comprises of five scent duos housed in gift boxes adorned with fabrics and wallpapers from their permanent collection and archives. Each design serves as the material embodiment of the scent and its universe — all of which reads like a traveller's wet dream. Light both candles within a set and be transported to far-flung locations such as Greece and France; or for those that prefer something a little closer to home, Asia.
Below, the full range for your perusal. Plane tickets don't fall from trees, but hey, at least your abode can smell like your dream destinations.
Available from 1 March at all Diptyque and Escentials stores. Priced at $88 for a single candle, $180 for a set.
