The limited edition DIPTYQUE Citronelle candle is my latest candle purchase. It has been a while since I had picked up a bougie scented candle and when the opportunity arose, I just had to add a new one to my scented candle collection.
To celebrate summer, diptyque transports us to the heart of Mediterranean nature. A land of unspoilt beauty, of scents and colours, the Mediterranean has been a constant source of inspiration for the Maison. – DIPTYQUE.COM
DIPTYQUE Citronelle Candle 190G AU$89
The limited edition citronelle candle is part of the floral scent profile family. It is described as a lively, aromatic notes, when the sun has disappeared from the horizon and the air in the garden cools down. Perfuming and mosquito repelling, this candle is dedicated to moments of long summer evenings and calls on notes of luminous lemongrass as well as verbena, neroli and orange blossom.
The scent itself when lit is subtle for me and upon close inspection (my nose close to the candle glass), I can definitely smell lemongrass along with the fresh of orange blossom. If you prefer subtle less over-powering scent combinations, then this is the one to try.
As this is a limited edition item, they may no longer be available in the size 190g, however, you may still be able to find the large outdoor version vessel online or at your local authorised DIPTYQUE stockist.
