We’re into the season of love, when brands begin to push out products in pink hues and heart-shaped adornments. As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, it’s easy to feel like everything has become commercialised for the sake of cashing in on the occasion; but here’s one Valentine’s Day item all dressed up in pink and lip prints that we don’t mind forking out cash for. Diptyque’s limited edition collection created in collaboration with Parisian designer Olympia Le-Tan, whose French-British heritage translates into pieces with a touch of quirky romanticism, like the Book Clutch Bag she’s most famous for.
The scent is a combination of rose and viola, hence the name Rosaviola on the iconic Diptyque oval. Besides the candle, there’s also a scented oval and solid perfume included in the collection, bearing motifs of lips, handbags and lipsticks. Have this burning prettily at home, and once the wax runs out, you know you’ll want to keep the lovely glass jar.
