Diptyque no longer lives on Maiden Lane. But not to fret, as you'll be able to get your luxe, Parisian candle fix très soon. The relocating boutique is scheduled to open on Monday, February 8th..
Yes, we were serious fans of the old store, which closed in mid-January. But the new space is located just a couple of blocks away at 73 Geary Street. So why the change of address? After 12 years, it was simply "time for a change."
Of course, all the cult classics (we're talking to you, Baies and Tuberose) will be on hand, along with chic new decor paying homage to the original Diptyque boutique on 34 Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris.
And in other candle news—the brand just launched a Valentine's Day collection, (Rosaviola) in collaboration with quirky French accessories designer Olympia Le-Tan. The scent? Predominantly rose with traces of lipstick and cozy leather notes.
Did we mention Olympia's favorite color is pink?
