The familiar scent of a crackling open fire is captured in this sophisticated, woody blend.
Smoky wood notes convey the warmth and coziness of a real wood fire on a long, chilly day. This “indoor and outdoor” candle is composed of a proprietary blend of waxes housed in a grey earthenware pot handmade by the Virebent porcelain atelier in the South of France.
Notes of birch and juniper evoke a blazing fire on a winter night.
Burn time: approximately 190 hours.
51.3 oz. five-wick candle, 7” height, 6” diameter
Handmade in France.

How To Use
The first time you light the candle, allow to burn until the wax is evenly melted and pools to the edge. This ensures an even burn, and prevents tunneling.
Use a wick trimmer to keep your wick at a length of ¼ inch for all subsequent burnings to minimize soot, debris, and blackening of the glass.
Burn for a maximum of four hours at a time to keep the wick from getting smoky.
The name ‘Diptyque’ comes from the word ‘diptych’—a painting or sculpture divided in two hinged panels that can be folded together. The original store at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain had two large display windows on either side of the entrance, as if an opened diptych, inspiring the founders to name it after the antiquated art style.
