x Pierre Frey The Flower Festival Candle Set
A fragrant memory of a festival held to mark the beginning of spring in the South of France. The celebration closes with a floral explosion when the air is filled with thousands of petals and multicolored corollas.
At diptyque, to experience an atmosphere is to have each sense primed to the full, in a permanent interplay of color and scent combinations. To illustrate this practice, diptyque has decided to work with Maison Pierre Frey.
Since 1935, the Pierre Frey family has specialized in decorating, creating, producing and manufacturing fabrics and wallpapers in the finest French tradition. To represent the olfactory world of each candle, diptyque has selected fabrics and wallpapers from the Maison Pierre Frey’s permanent collection and archives.
This collaboration with Pierre Frey echoes a practice dating back to the earliest days of the Maison diptyque, when each candle was paired with a particular textile, as the material embodiment of the scent and its universe. It all began with the simplest of ideas; just as decorative objects or furnishing fabrics give a personal touch to an interior, so candles can ornament a living room, library or bedroom.
Through the power of scent and sight, each creation offers the chance an escape to an imaginary land or a familiar place.
The first time you burn your diptyque candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.
Trim the Wick:
Before lighting your diptyque candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.
Realign the Wick:
After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.
Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.

The Diptyque story began in Paris at 34 boulevard Saint-Germain with, at its heart, three friends driven by the same creative passion. Christiane Gautrot was an interior designer, Desmond Knox-Leet, a painter, and Yves Coueslant, a theater director and set designer. The first two collaborated designing fabrics and wallpaper for Liberty and Sanderson.
The collection of personal fragrances, skincare and home fragrances are imprinted with a distinctive and particular olfactory signature. The creations express themselves in unusual ways to delight loyal and initiated fans and enlightened novices.
