NOSTALGIA IN A BOTTLE

This latest fragrance from DIPTYQUE will definitely brighten my mood for unbelievably long hot summer days..and nights…

Created in hazy tribute to the childhood memories of Christiane Gautrot, one of DIPTYQUE’s founders, FLORABELLIO is truly a homage to summer days. Collaborating with a fine art photographer, Terri Weifenbach and a writer, Philippe Claudel, check out the fine art works from FLORABELLIO’s press kits.

I love how Diptyque really put an effort to create a concept and story in each of their fragrances. And just to have that gorgeous bottle sitting beautifully on your makeup drawer, it already defines who you are. You are unique, you love nostalgic moments, you feel comfortable to wear something you’re familiar with and you smell beautiful. Enough said. 

FLORABELLIO features notes of sea salt, apple blossom, coffee and toasted sesame. Every note blended effortlessly to create a subtle light airy scent. First whiff might seem citrusy but when it dries down, I can smell that slightly sweet coffee scent. Not your typical summery fragrance, FLORABELLIO is energising and caressing without being too floral or fruity. Now available in Jakarta (yeay!) and it comes in two sizes, EDT 50ml and 100ml.

INSTANT AIR OF LUXURY

Great scents count. A lot. Every time I burn DIPTYQUE candle, I feel Paris.

If you never tried this highest quality scented candle (FYI, they’re all made with only natural ingredients-no synthetic scents), this is the perfect set to start. Set of Mini Candles (each weight 70 grams) includes three scents, BAIES (Berries), FIGUIER (Fig) and ROSES (Roses). Even though they’re petite, they’re as powerful as the standard Diptyque candle. And the best part if we own this set is we can lit one by one at itself or light them all to create a unique scent. 

Baies was first introduced in 1983, one of the cult classics which is a favorite for such as Peter Som. He also uses the candle’s empty glass container to store his colored pencils (mine will be makeup brushes). Remember folks, do not throw the precious empty glasses once they all burned. 

Figuier is another darling for celebrities alike. Once, Gwyneth Paltrow blogged about it, naming Figuier as one of her favorite candle. 

Roses is sophisticated & elegant, no wonder Kate Moss, Madonna and Jennifer Lopez swear by its’ scent. 

From what I’ve read, those well-known people not only stock their homes with Diptyque candles, they travel with them too. That’s why this set comes in handy at smaller sizes. Don’t you just love the homelike ambience when you travel? I know I do.
