Three Things: Diptyque Room Spray, Diptyque Candles and Bottega Louie Macarons

Affiliate Links        
Currently obsessed with Diptyque. I love that the Diptyque room sprays are making a comeback. I found three at my local Nordstrom and decided to start with Baies ($65 for 3.4 oz). I've been a huge fan of the Baies Candle and was curious to see how the Room Spray compared. Both are similar with the mix of roses and blackcurrant leaves (floral but not too floral, sweet but not too sweet). The Baies Room Spray is quite a bit sweeter with the blackcurrant more prominent. I spritz rooms with just one spritz to fill the entire room. Lasting power is quite good - it lingers for several hours.

Two new candle discoveries include the Feullie de Lavande (a mini gift with purchase) and the new Diptyque Minä collection in Joie, Infini and Ciel ($65 each, spotted in stores at Nordstrom and Barneys NY Beverly Hills, online at Nordstrom.com and Diptyque.com). The new candles were created by minä perhonen and the house of diptyque inspired by poems written by Akira Minagawa. The candles are cased in a semi-transparent white glass with beautiful designs. More details on each to come as I open them and start to burn. The first one I've opened is Joie which is a fresh floral, I will write more about it in the upcoming days.

Finally I'm obsessed with Bottega Louie Macarons. I've never been to Paris to try the real french macarons but I hear Bottega Louie makes ones closest to the ones in Paris. My favorites are Vanilla and Earl Grey. If you go to LA, I highly recommend you visit Bottega Louie for a treat. Click over to Styled Notes to see a detailed feature on Bottega Louie.

  6. I purchased the Joie candle at Nordstrom the other day and was delighted to find another Diptyque candle I love! I also loved the powdery smell of Ciel. That may be my next purchase!

    1. Ooh! I love it when I find other Diptyque fans. These new ones are very different from what Diptyque usually does. I'm not a huge fan of powdery or strong florals, but these are lovely. I agree Ciel is very very nice :)

  7. Bottega Louie is on my list of places to visit the next time I'm in LA. I should've went when I was there early May. Those macarons look amazing. I wonder if it's comparable to Laduree in Paris?

  8. I'm beyond obsessed with Diptyque, too, lol--especially Choisya. I saw the new minä perhonen Collection and was ecstatic. The jars look amazing. I'm definitely picking up Joie--I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it.

  12. Wow those macarons look so amazing! There are several places around here that sell them, but nothing that look anything like those. Is that gold on them?

  13. I love macarons! My fave flavours are probably raspberry and pistachio. It's been such a while since I've had authentic French macarons. This post really makes me want some, haha! I have had the Laduree and Pierre Herme ones from Tokyo and the ones I've tried here don't even compare to those.
