When famed fragrance house, Diptyque, releases a new collection I'm all ears...and nose! Their scents and handblown glass packaging are nothing short of exquisite, adding touches of luxury and bringing a spa-like calm to all in their presence. In their continuous quest toward new olfactory horizons, Diptyque recently created a new collection steeped in tradition, inspired by it's original boutique address in Paris, 34 Boulevard Saint Germain. 

Anyone who fancies the brand's creations as much as I do, I urge you to grab a beverage of your choice (it's Friday, so be creative) and a pen and paper and start creating those wish lists. Seriously lust-worthy stuff, guys! The brand invites you to experience 50 years of Diptyque in one quintessential collection they describe as being "inspired by encounters and a philosophy of openness and curiosity, truly free, in which each product tells a story and becomes the ambassador of an area of expertise."

The range consists of a limited edition fragrance and, as a first for the brand, an array of scented pillar candles, textured candle holders, paper goods, and soap stone diffusers. To mark these new releases, each Diptyque location has arranged a Bazaar so that anyone entering the boutique can experience this emblematic collection and be transported into the sensory creative vision of the brand's founders. I seriously suggest you take a peek, as the Bazaar is a beautiful arrangement of old favorites and new creations that revive the original scents of the potpourris found in the Paris flagship. 

I couldn't leave the Bazaar without stocking up on some of my favorite Diptyque pieces (yup - I'm calling them that). It's safe to say the Feu de Bois Candle* is one of my all time favorites; reminiscent of the smell of burning firewood drifting through the winter air, it's perfect to cozy up to on a cold night in. I have never previously sniffed the Noisetier Candle* but oh boy, am I glad I did. It really embodies the fragrance of the first signs of autumn - smelling of hazelnut, which is apparently a divine combination of woody and fruity notes. Another fixture at the Bazaar, Diptyque Volutes Eau de Parfum*, a leathery tobacco scent grounded with notes of amber, is a scent I have been wearing for a while now and I can't get enough of. Let's just say, I don't think my love affair with the brand, or it's delicious packaging, will be ending anytime soon. 

Do you have any longtime Diptyque loves? Have you ever been lucky enough to visit the original store location on 34 Boulevard Saint Germain?
