Two days post Christmas my home is still very much alive with the spirit of the holiday. Leftover’s are plenty, the Christmas tree still stands and the magical aroma of frankincense permeates the air. The Frankincense or Olibanan thanks to the Diptyque Oliban Holiday Candle.
Inspired by Arabian Nights, Diptyque released three Holiday Candles, Amber Oud (gold), Sapin Dore (myrrh) and Oliban (frankinscence). After reading the lovely review of the Oliban candle on Getting Cheeky I found it hard to resist. So right before Christmas I dropped hints, I dropped them hard. Message received, I knew what it was before I opened it, I could smell it. Thank you my sweet.
The fragrance of the Oliban candle is truly magical, the frankincense undeniable. The glass container was inspired by a night blue kilim rug although reminiscent to me of the stained glass windows of cathredrals. It has been a luxury of mine to sit beside such a gorgeous fragrance of perfect execution much expected of the brand Diptyque.
The Diptyque Oliban Candle is still available for purchase.
