I have read a lot about how amazing the Diptyque candles are in the past few months and finally broke down and bought one. I decided on the BIAES one and think it is really nice. You can definitely tell the difference between these candles and others. They just give out so much fragrance! This one, according to Diptyque, smells of a “bouquet of roses and black currant leaves” which I think is spot on.
While ordering it I also snuck a solid perfume into my online shopping cart to try :).
It’s called ‘34’. If you have read my earlier post about perfume you may know that I rarely get new fragrances but lately I have been trying to expand on the types that I like (hence the COCO Mademoiselle). Well, this solid perfume is wonderful and SOO different from anything I have.
Diptyque describes it as the scent of their first boutique on 34 Boulevard Saint Germain. It boasts “Fresh, green and spicy accords. Damp mosses, crumpled blackcurrant leaves, sun-dried fig leaves” and is neither masculine nor feminine. It is possibly my new favourite scent and the packaging is very good quality!
Have any of you tried any of their other scents? I want to try the L’ombre dans l’eau next.
Lots of love,
In the past I was not one to really branch out from the fragrances that I already had (I have a couple) however, I did try the COCO Mademoiselle the other day and LOVED it! I decided to get the Twist and Spray Eau de Parfum because I thought it would be nice for carrying around in my bag and for when I travel. I also noticed that for an extra $2 you got 10ml more than if you bought it in the regular bottle (last years prices – i think they went up in 2014)!
A couple weeks after buying the fragrance I went back and got the Velvet body oil to layer with it. This just helps with the lasting power and feels really good on the skin.
This shows the extra cylinders you get.
Have you guys tried this perfume? What do you think? I also like their newest one, COCO Noir. Have any of you smelt it?
Lots of love,
