Well, this year Diptyque have given us something to ponder on. What exactly are these Diptyque Christmas Candles called? It’s like a game of Boggle and even the easiest one, Sapin, I honestly thought was Spain. I couldn’t even begin to start on Liquid Ambar (although I did find an impressive number of actual words, a la Boggle rules). Nonetheless, if you love those spiced, traditional candle fragrances at Christmas these three are game on.
I haven’t sparked any of these up yet – there’s only so much Christmas you want hanging around your house in November, but Diptyque is a tried and trusted candle brand, so there’s no reason to think they won’t give good burn. Sapin is the most resinous one in a pine and mandarin combination which is so beautiful I would make it my top pick of the three. Oliban (or Banoil as I like to call it ;-)) is deeper and more woody with oriental accents and the more ‘church-by-candlelight’ of the three, while Liquid Ambar (don’t start me…) is sweet, smooth and warming.
If you love traditional festive home scents, the Diptyque Christmas Candles will definitely hit the spot – these are small size candles (70g) with a burn time of up to 60 hours (but beware, those hours very quickly clock up!) and they’re £28 each HERE.
