A Very Diptyque Valentine’s Day + Giveaway


How do you apply your perfume? I’ve always been a spray through the air and walk through it kind of girl, which the lovely ladies at Diptyque informed me is the French way. Instantly my haphazard ways are Parisian chic! A few weeks ago, I visited the Bucktown Diptyque boutique— always a wonderful treat for the senses. I was in search of a new perfume and let my nose lead the way.



Diptyque approaches the scent selection, be it home or personal, in a very experiential manner. Starts with a chat on your likes and dislikes and continues with a “last man standing” style smell test. No worries if you don’t know your scent profile — mine is admittedly vague and ADD. They have a way of challenging your instincts and introducing you to notes you didn’t even know you would like. I am all rose all the time, but my favorite candle is Baies (it’s actually the top seller) and I’m wildly attracted to the Vetyverio perfume. OK…yes, both of those have rose, but vetiver in its pure form is a rooty, earthy scent. Turns out, I love it.


Because it’s Valentine’s Day and I adore you all, I’ve got a giveaway courtesy of of the Diptyque Bucktown team!

If you’re in Chicago (or plan to travel to Chicago!), Diptyque is inviting one of you to come in and pick out a candle of your choice from the classic collection. Leave me a comment by Sunday 2/23 and I’ll pick at random!

Also, I’ve got a mini Rose candle and Eau de Rose sampler set to give to away as well. You can enter via Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

    I am obsessed with diptyque and visit their bucktown location frequently! Tuberose, gardenia and freesia are my favorite candle scents and I also love their body care and perfumes.

    Now THIS is a Valentine’s Day giveaway 🙂 I’m totally ADD with scents too…I’m not really sure what I like until I actually smell it! Any excuse to stop into Diptyque, I’ll take it (esp when they throw in a candle)! Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Ooooo! I love Diptyque and have been meaning to get to their Bucktown location. I absolutely love their Feu de Bois candle and I also bought a candle from their Christmas collection. I almost cried when I finished that candle. It was sooooo lovely! Happy Valentine’s Day!!

    I was so excited to read more about Diptyque! My friend told me about it, and it sounds like a heavenly place 🙂 I didn’t know they had candles. Ill have to make a trip over there soon.

    Happy Valentines Day!

    I have always wanted a Diptyque candle, but as a poor college student, I just cannot bring myself to part with the money!

    First Arch Apothecary and now Diptyque! How have I not been to either one of these lovely locations? Must correct both soon…

    This is such a cool website. For a short period of time, I lived in the Midwest, in the Chicago area, and its a city that I got to know well and love. I never was into candles until I encountered Diptyque, and I am glad that I did.I think that my favorite is Baies, but for the fragrance, my favorite is Eau Duelle Eau de Parfum which I have in the solid form, which I think is easier to travel with. Have a good weekend.
