Why We Love Diptyque Candles

For us, it’s about the potency of the scent. Diptyque promises that its 70g candle will burn for 20 hours, 190g for 60 hours and 600g for 90 hours. While this isn’t out of the ordinary, what we love about Diptyque scented candles is that the fragrance fills the room. These are the kind the candles that can transform the mood of a room within minutes.

As the luxury fragrance brand celebrates its 60th anniversary, we decided to create the ultimate guide to the best Diptyque scented candles and what they smell like, so you can find the one for you...
