22 Diptyque candles go up in smoke
After having been bought out by the London-based private equity firm Manzanita Funds, Diptyque founded in 1961, is starting to feel the pain. Five eaux de toilette have already been discontinued, L'Autre, Eau d'Elide, Opôné, L'Eau Trois and Virgilio; 22 candles are getting the axe. Here is the official death list, furnished by the Diptyque counter of a major Parisian department store:
Amande, Aster, Basilic, Bois Ciré, Cèdre, Coing, Cuir, Genet, Giroflée, Héliotrope, Iris, Jacinthe, Laurier, Lierre, Miel, Narcisse, Œillet, Pois de senteur, Réséda, Seringa, Safran, Tilleul.
If you’re hooked, stock up.
