Diptyque Spring 2009 White Candle Coffret
Ultra-luxe Parisian parfumeur Diptyque is offering a White Candle Coffret gift box (above) for Spring 2009 evoking the fresh scents of the season. The three scented mini candles offer a "fragrant harmony of floral and herbal notes", comprised of Roses, Freesia and Lierre (Ivy). Presented in a crisp white box, the trio can be burned together or individually; each candle burns for 30 hours. Roses "evokes the world's most universally loved flower", Lierre "evokes the branches of ivy leaves running on the walls of an antique house", and Freesia "presents the scent of delicious, peppery white flowers wafting in the air of a beautiful spring morning." Priced at $98, the Coffret is available at the Diptyque stores in San Francisco and New York, as well as select boutiques. The firm was founded on Paris' famed Boulevard Saint-Germain in 1961.
