An ode to the fig tree, this green, fruity scent conjures up wild orchards on sun-drenched Greek isles.
One of Diptyque’s founders remarked, “In the heat of a Greek summer, to get to the sea you had to walk through a natural orchard of wild fig trees.” He brought back a few leaves in a small box, only to discover years later the leaves had lost none of their fragrance, inspiring this scent. This “indoor and outdoor” candle is composed of a proprietary blend of waxes housed in a white earthenware pot handmade by the Virebent porcelain atelier in the South of France.
The fig tree intensified with notes of fresh leaves, warm bark, and the milky sap of its fruit.
Burn time: approximately 190 hours.

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.
