diptyque Paris was founded in 1961 by three friends who had been trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1963 Diptyque started producing a series of scented candles which soon gained world-wide fame. Packaged in an art deco design with elegant lettering and stylish drawings, this design provides the unmistakable hallmark of diptyque home and personal fragrances.
The Essence of Diptyque
The 34 boulevard Saint Germain candle has a scent which reveals itself as fresh, green and spicy accords. Damp mosses, crumpled blackcurrant leaves, sun-dried fig leaves all favorite raw materials.
- When using the candle for the first time, leave it to burn for 2 or 3 hours, until all the wax has become liquid on the surface.
- Regularly cut the wick with the wick trimmer (ideal length 3-5 mm).
- Be sure to centre the wick in the wax after each use for consistent consumption of the wax.
