. . .and the heart.
Diptyque have launched a new candle to mark AW2013 and it’s got me very excited because it’s inspired by a smell I love; Hazelnut. It’s called Noisetier and it steams from the Corylus avellana (Hazelut tree). The candle is, as always, encased in glass with elegant black and white with calligraphy, depicting the name, within the trademark oval of the house. The very essence of Parisian chic.
Noisetier is the “scent of a generous season and an invitation to take a stroll on bountiful, shaded and dry lands,” Hazelnuts are harvested from September to November making them the perfect Fall scent.
A quote from French painter Toulouse-Lautrec informs the spirit of the project, “L’automne est le printemps de l’hiver”, “Fall is the spring of winter”.
The fragrance is defined as woodsy with bitter and tart fruity accords and Diptyque recommend to use Noisetier together with Coing to create an autumnal sensory scape.
I can’t wait to get my hands on one and bring the true essence of the Fall season into my home.
