WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR A WAY TO UPGRADE OUR EVERYDAY. AND HERE IT IS. It’s taken an entire year to get to December. And it’s been a marathon and you most definitely deserve a nice reward for the way you’ve moved through 2016. A daily chocolate surprise that pops out from behind a paper door is nice enough... but this is next level. This is the gift of Diptyque delightfulness that just keeps on gifting. In our view, it deserves its own presentation table on which to sit and herald each of the 25 days, silently hinting at the temptation of what gorgeous scented treat sits behind each little door. On Tuesday 6th, it might well be a handbag-sized bottle of cult creation Philosykos. On Friday 16th a mini Oranger Candle. On Saturday 24th who knows! Of course, there are generous, selfless types who will look at this advent calendar and see a chicer-than-chocolat present for someone they (seriously) love. And then there are those of us who will be filled with a strong need to gift to self. Don’t feel an ounce of guilt—get practical; we suggest you forward this very memo to friends, the fam, and/or Santa. However you plan on getting it under your tree, hurry; this black and white box of scented heaven all the way from 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain is an extremely limited edition. Happy days (all 25 of them) await.
