Diptyque Rosaviola Candle

Forget date night - with all the love-themed beauty products hitting shelves this February, the big V-Day is all about romancing numero uno (OK, and other people too... but I'm gonna have some 'me time' first). My pick of the bunch has to be the limited edition new candle from Diptyque, aka the perfect way to treat yo'self.

A collaboration with French fashion designer Olympia Le-Tan, the Rosaviola candle comes in two sizes (mini version featured here) each dressed like one of her signature bags - super colourful and adorned with playful illustrations. A switch-up from Diptyque's standard range, the candles are housed in pink opaque glass and the traditional label is replaced by an embroidered version. Oh, and they're sealed with a kiss!

As for the fragrance, it's based on the 'mystery and allure of the lady's bag' - comprising of rose notes, traces of lipstick and a hint of leather. To me, it's a saccharine scent akin to a box of rose and violet creams, with just enough edge to feel adult. So there you have it - if no one's buying you a box of chocolates (or even if they are), who cares! Nab this for your boudoir and seduce yourself instead.
