The art of Candle Making

Fragrance

For over 50 years, legendary French perfumer diptyque has perfected the art of making scented candles.

Passionate about re-creating scents from their exotic travels and childhood memories, diptyque fragrances capture the essences of green figs, orange blossoms, tuberose petals and black currant leaves, to name but a few.

Wax

diptyque candles are made of a high quality vegetable/paraffin wax mix, the purity and safety of which are indisputable.

Each diptyque candle's wax is properly distributed so your candle burns evenly. With proper care, diptyque candles burn for an average of 50 to 60 hours.

Because each fragrance contains a unique mix of natural ingredients, diptyque custom blends specific wax formulas designed to complement every candle scent.

Wicks

For your complete peace of mind, each diptyque candle is made with a cotton, lead-free wick.

Wicks vary in diameter depending on the scent and are hand glued into each glass. For waxes that resist heat, a double wick is used.

The glasses are filled to the brim with heated wax. Before the wax has completely cooled, the wicks are straightened by hand one by one. The wicks are then trimmed to a length of 3 or 4 millimeters and the candles receive one last inspection.

At last, the candles are ready to be labelled and packaged with the white-gloved treatment they deserve.
