WHAT IT IS From the Les Mondes de Diptyque Collection. Light the Temple des Mousses candle and enter the magic of a Japanese Zen garden, transported deep into an unspoiled natural environment. Not far from Kyoto, in a location conducive to meditation and contemplation, stands a temple with a garden containing one hundred and twenty rare and delicate varieties of moss. 60 years after the first Diptyque candle, a new chapter is being written with the first scented candles for which the Maison also offers refills. The collection “Les Mondes de Diptyque” (“The Worlds of Diptyque”) is a saga of five volumes, each candle relating the history of the location it embodies in curls of fragrant smoke. Each of these candles was conceived to last through multiple lifetimes, and can easily be refilled. Each scent in the collection is an authentic olfactory narrative imagined by Olivia Giacobetti, long established as a perfumer for Diptyque. The perfumes of candles from Les Mondes de Diptyque are characterized by their urgency, their diversity, and the high quality of the raw materials used, itself a calling card of Diptyque’s expertise as a perfumer.
