The first time you burn your diptyque candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.
Trim The Wick
Before lighting your diptyque candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.
Realign The Wick
After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.
Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.
Around forty raw materials make up the composition. The initiated will recognise the filiation with the company~s classic fragrances.
The head features the sparkling and luminous scents of Blackcurrant and the green leaves from L~Ombre dans l~Eau and Philosykos, sustained with the freshness of Rose Pepper and Citrus notes, followed by the spices (Clove, Cinnamon, Cardamom, etc.) of L~Eau.
The heart is a story of flowers: Rose (L~Ombre dans l~Eau), Egyptian Geranium (one of Diptyque~s favourite flowers), and touches of the heady Do Son tuberose with a dash of Iris and Violet to maintain a gentle and lively aroma.
The base is a combination of woods, balms and resins. The note gives style and suppleness, especially to the eau de toilette. And then there is this small olfactory accident, the Eucalyptus, which titillates the nose.
