Diptyque Tubereuse Candle

Julia Restoin-Roitfeld wisely noted that certain smells remind us of home and for her the scent of the Diptyque Tubéreuse Candle always makes her feel as if she is back in Paris with her parents. Carine Roitfeld prefers the scent of tubéreuse (or in English, "tuberose") and burns the Diptyque candles in her home constantly.

It is no wonder that tubéreuse is La Roitfeld's favorite scent as it is one of the most costly ingredients used in blending perfumes. The tubéreuse is a white flower native to Mexico and unusual in that it deploys its heady fragrance at dusk. Described as beguiling, captivating, intoxicating, sensual, intense, enchanting, exotic, tubéreuse does indeed sound like the smell that epitomizes Carine...

The candles by Diptyque are also on par with the Roitfeld standard of quality: the wax is a natural vegetable and paraffin formula custom blended to complement the scent of tubéreuse and distributed properly so that the candle burns evenly. The cotton, lead-free wick is placed into each glass and straightened and trimmed by hand. Talk about white glove treatment! With care, the Diptyque candles will burn for 50 to 60 hours on average so enjoy the essence of Carine while it lasts...

Great taste! The store on Bvd Saint Germain also has wonderful window displays. Be sure to visit when you're in town.
