As it turns out, Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching.
Valentine’s Day to me is an excuse to indulge in wildly inappropriate lingerie and other romantic notions (not so much the candy.) Some of the items I indulge in this time every year (and throughout the year, who am I kidding?) are candles and there’s one company that does them single-handedly better than anyone else: diptyque.
This year, for the Valentine’s Day holiday, the 30-year industry giant has created a special present just for their fans: the Kuntzel + Deygas Roseros by diptyque Paris limited-edition candle duo.
The two candles? Read on, home fragrance lovers:
Rose: Described as “Romantic melody of a garden rose.” The scent has a base of Piaget Rose and combines it with notes of Egyptian Basil essence, black currant, violet and sweet and sensual Musks.
Eros: Another rose scent, it’s built upon a base of Rugosa Rose and adds sensual notes of Myrrh essence, Laos Benzoin, Peru balm, cedar and sandalwood.
Gorgeous by themselves, the two candles burned together side by side create a sexy, sensual fragrance that is intoxicating and incredibly alluring. In other words, we’re talking guaranteed sexy time.
Even better, the boxes and labels designed by Kuntzel + Deygas (featuring the lovely characters Belle & Bête) come together at the corners to form a beautiful artistic heart. With Diptyque, the love is in the quality and definitely in the details.
It doesn’t matter how you celebrate Valentine’s Day. This candle set is a must have for the year, an intoxicating experience that reminds us all that everything is lovely alone, but even better when it finds it’s perfect match.
Diptyque Roseros Candle Duo ($78), available via the Diptyque site and fine retailers worldwide.
