By now, you must know that we are HUGE fans of Diptyque, especially their candles. We just got advanced notice about a very special candle launch that will be exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue November through January. The candle is named Patchouli and it sounds divine.
The feeling behind the Patchouli candle is earthy and features notes of cedar, moss, sandalwood, vanilla, white musk and naturally, patchouli.
Patchouli was popularized in the 19th century as the fragrance used to scent fabric being exported to Europe from India and China. Patchouli thus became considered by Europeans as a luxurious and lavish scent.
Andrew Sedlock, Diptyque’s Managing Director says of the candle "We wanted to create a candle that was beautifully fragranced and evoked emotion. The inspiration stems from when the scent of Patchouli was associated with opulence and extravagance."
Starting November 1, 2008, the Patchouli candle will be available for $60 at the Following Saks Fifth Avenue locations: New York City, Boston, Greenwich (CT) and South Coast Plaza (CA).
Enjoy the magic of Diptyque or share it with a friend. This candle would make a terrific gift for the holidays.
