Floral bouquets may be pretty, but they don’t exactly last long. These Diptyque Coloring Spring candles though will last a lot longer.
Let’s paint you a picture — Mother’s Day approaches, but you forget to plan something until the absolute last minute. So you go for an easy option: a bouquet of flowers. Mom protests because she says it’s “such a waste” of money, but will still love it anyway. A week later, the flowers wilt and cease to exist. The next year comes — rinse and repeat.
Instead of scrambling for ideas this year, we’ve given you plenty of options: for those who want to splurge, we offered a selection of fine jewellery pieces. If your mother is one who enjoys fine food, we’ve also curated several places that have Mother’s Day offerings. But if mom is one who loves the smell of floral fragrances and luxurious home decor, might we suggest Diptyque’s Coloring Spring scented candle collection?
For this collection, Diptyque has selected five floral scents out of its repertoire of 49 scented candles. These scents – Mimosa, Freesia, Choisya (a Mexican orange blossom), Iris, and Geranium Rosa (rose geranium) – have been dressed in the colours of its flowers, bringing to mind the fresh blooms of spring.
To give you an idea of its fragrances, Mimosas are soft with honeyed notes, while Freesia is delicate and heady with a touch of pepper. Geranium Rosa has the freshness of leaves paired with spicy nuances of rose, while Choisya has a fresh green scent that’s lightly perfumed. Finally, the Iris is lightly powdery with hints of soft leather.
