All About Diptyque Candles!
Diptyque candles are always a favorite in store and online for us here at Scents & Sprays. So, we figured they deserved to be highlighted in our Blog today.
What makes Diptyque special? Is it the unique scents unlike any other? The hand crafting that goes into each and every product they create? Or perhaps the elegant design elements that date back to the beginning of the company?
The answer is all of these things. All of this and more represents why Diptyque is the height of luxury home fragrance. Since opening in 1961, they have continually operated by the same standard. The company has never been about profit or wealth, but the desire to bring the fragrances from their many travels into the homes of thousands. Who knew the first three Diptyque candles, Thé, Aubepine, and Canelle, would lead to one of the most successful luxury candle retailers on the market.
Each Diptyque candle is special, mostly due to the fact that each scent comes from years of thought and ingredients found in the actual elements. Diptyque extracts the fragrances for their products themselves, instead of buying traditional oils. Each candle is hand poured and the wick is straightened by hand.
The personal touch is clear when you receive the elegant box in your home. The next time you receive your favorite Diptyque scent, make sure and analyze the care that went into creating it.

St. Patrick’s Day is approaching quickly, and I hope everyone has their green outfits ready! Candles are a great way to get in the spirit for this holiday. If you love green, these candles will be ideal for you all year round!
Diptyque’s Figuier Vert is the perfect shade of green to get everyone in that St. Patty’s spirit, and the fig scent is perfect for this time of year. Another great idea is the Archipelago Tuscany 4×6 Pillar candle. This green one is beautiful and a great decor piece.
However, Deep Clover by Votivo is by far the best St. Patrick’s Day Candle. Celebrate in style and enjoy the lush fragrance of clover and moss.
Did you know every year the Chicago River is dyed green for the St. Patrick’s Day celebration? What are some of the ways you celebrate?

Top 5 Fragrances at Scents & Sprays
The customers have spoken! These are the top five selling fragrances for the month of January!
Trapp Orange Vanilla. Big shock with this one. Consistently the best seller, people can’t seem to get enough of it! This is one of the few citrus scents that sells just as well through the winter as it does through the summer.
Diptyque Feu De Bois. This one is a wonderful winter fragrance. Diptyque put every effort into making this candle smell like a fireplace full of burning embers, and they got incredibly close to the real deal. It’s easy to feel warm and cozy under a blanket while this candle is lit!
Salt City Cedarwood Vanilla. The perfect candle to enjoy when it’s cold outside. Cedarwood mixed with vanilla? It feels like bringing a warm and cozy bakery directly into your home. The vanilla adds that scent of baking, then throw in the nice, warm cedarwood and you really can’t go wrong.
Votivo Red Currant. This is another one that tends to always make the list. Customer seem to love this fragrance, and tend to buy more then one at a time. I personally can’t count the number of times I have had a customer come into the store and make a beeline for the Red Currant.
The Thymes Goldleaf Home Fragrance Mist. I was a bit shocked to see this one on the list. Don’t get me wrong, this is one of my favorite Thymes products, it is just a new addition to our top 5. For anyone who loves rose, this is a definite must have.
