Maquis - Candle 6.5oz



Diptyque co-founder Desmond Knox-Leet grew up on the French Riviera in a house on the side of a hill between Cap Martin and Roquebrune. Isolated and somewhat rustic, this house was surrounded by a terraced garden that blended with the rocks and resinous scrub of the hinterland. The bright sunlight intensifies the whispered scents of this mountainous landscape that embraces the sea.

Diptyque draws inspiration from this dense vegetation dominated by cistus and captures the scents of maquis in this candle. These shrubs, partial to dry soil and direct sunlight, naturally develops a woody, warm and balsamic fragrance: the roundness of a cistus, patchouli and amber accord.
