Diptyque Revives Its City Candles Collection With "Pekin"
Drawing inspiration from Beijing’s imperial temples.
The new scent is infused with notes of green tea and magnolia from the city’s oldest trees. Hints of sandalwood and cypress comprise the candle to bring about feelings of nostalgia. A graphic of a dragon makes an appearance alongside branding stamped in gold foil, paying tribute to China’s sacred animal. Other notable formulations from the collection are dedicated to cities such as Paris, Berlin, Tokyo and Shanghai.
The City Candles collection will be available online from April 21 to 27, with each candle retailing for $78 USD.
