The Diptyque hourglass diffuser brings back the visionary world captured in perfume. As much a visual manifestation as one of smell, it is easy and intuitive to use, requiring no energy, needing no special care. It is entirely distinct from modern technologies: Simply turn the object over to begin a fragrance cycle of about twenty minutes. With a scent diffusion process that uses no heat, relying on gravity and osmotic action, the hourglass diffuser preserves the originality and integrity of the signature 34 boulevard saint germain perfume as it slowly, subtly, and delicately releases its inimitable notes into the air.
The warmth of fig wood, the freshness of its leaves, and the milky sap prolong the pleasure of the Figuier candle with an elegant, lasting diffuser.
When celebrities travel to Paris, they flock to the Left Bank to stock up on Diptyque candles. Diptyque produced its first handmade candles in 1963, infusing them with fresh botanical scents. Today, they're widely acknowledged to be one of the world's finest candles.
