Diptyque Boutique Maiden Lane - San Francisco

Diptyque | Maiden Lane, San Francisco

I took a much-needed mini vacation this month with my husband. We spent a week in San Francisco visiting family and friends. I've been a die-hard Diptyque fan so the Diptyque Store on Maiden Lane was on my list of must-see places. The store featured the new Diptyque Electric Diffuser (quite impressive) which will accomodate a small selection of scents in 34 boulevard st germain, Figuier, Baies, Amber and Feu de Bois. Both my husband and I were seriously tempted.

The Maiden Lane boutique is a small intimate store. It has a warm slightly rustic-library feel with the wood shelves and decor. The store is split into an upper and lower level creating a home-like feel. The combination of all the scents was so incredible. I wished I could take the entire store and transport it into my own home. I learned so much from the Diptyque staff on each of the different categories of scents - they were incredibly friendly and patient with all our questions as we asked about each candle. I've since developed quite a long wish list of items to try in the future. Due to our traveling situation I limited myself to 2 items (since we didn't want to check any luggage) and purchased two of the Boutique Exclusives in Mousses (forest-moss) and Tilleul (linden tree). If you have a chance to visit one of the boutiques I highly recommend it. The store Diptyque reps are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The stores themselves are decorated so beautifully - I felt inspired to up the game in our own house decoration-wise with subtle candle accents.

Have you been to a Diptyque Boutique? I normally purchase my candles from Nordstrom or Barneys but fell completely in love with the Diptyque store. What are your favorite Diptyque items?

  1. Hi Sabrina,

    I loved seeing your photos of Diptyque San Francisco; the colors are so bright and very California! The two Diptyque boutiques I've seen so far are Diptyque Chicago (more serious) and Diptyque NYC on Bleecker St. (more glitzy) :-)

  2. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos! I haven't been to a Diptyque boutique yet and rely on retailers like Nordstrom,etc. I imagine it must have smelled divine inside the store :)

    1. You're welcome. I rely on larger retailers too - was interested to learn that the Boutiques have exclusive scents and accessories. I always wondered why I couldn't find Tilleul at any stores (although I did see it online at Nordstrom).

  8. Oh wow--that must have been fantastic. I think if I were to ever visit a Diptyque Boutique I would go broke. Tilleul has been on my shopping list for a while now. I'm really curious as to how Mousses--and so many others--smell.

  9. What a gorgeous store! Very well laid out. I have never tried anything from Diptyque but has often lusted over their candles
