Diptyque has enriched its botanical collection with tantalizing new flavors that are a delight to the senses.

Step into the world of a Parisian café, where the renowned household fragrance innovator, Diptyque, embarks on a unique gourmet partnership to reinvent its scent offerings. This collaboration honors the sophisticated French lifestyle, inviting patrons to enjoy the distinguished fragrances of Signature candles. These candles are influenced by the delightful confections available at Café Verlet, a place where moments pause…


In the year 1963, merely two years following the launch of its flagship store on 34 boulevard Saint Germain, Diptyque introduced the world to its inaugural fragrance candles: Thé (Tea), Cannelle (Cinnamon), and Aubépine (Hawthorn). Ever since, the Signature candles from Diptyque have promised a mesmerizing experience, offering a unique journey of scent discovery from the comfort of one’s living space. Diptyque invites us to delve into a realm of enticing fragrances, enhancing its collection with fresh aromas and a special edition range, adding a flavorful twist of Diptyque sophistication. This collaboration with Café Verlet – Paris’s oldest coffee merchant and premier roastery – celebrates the fusion of two creative visions…and two kindred spirits. Across generations, skilled roasters have continued a legacy that establishes this café, initiated by the Verlet family, as a hallmark of culinary taste. Known for its superior coffees, Café Verlet shares Diptyque’s zeal for authenticity, distinction, and exploration. Here, the deep flavors of Café Verlet converge with Diptyque’s fragrance expertise to forge an unparalleled sensory journey in Paris’s vibrant core.

The fragrances in this assortment – Café (Coffee), Chantilly (Whipped Cream), Biscuit (Biscuit), and Fruits Confits (Candied Fruits) – draw inspiration from Café Verlet’s menu, famous for its thirty distinct pure-origin coffees. The Café candle encapsulates the cozy ambiance of Café Verlet, with its captivating aroma of roasted coffee beans combined with the scent of toasted grains, reminiscent of the first taste of an impeccable espresso. The Chantilly candle offers a light, velvety sensation with a hint of vanilla, evoking the creamy taste of whipped cream. The Biscuit candle blends the spicy essence of Verlet’s renowned travel cakes with the lush scent of patchouli. Finally, the Fruits Confits candle, exclusively sold in Diptyque stores and at Nordstrom in the U.S. and Holt Renfrew in Canada, radiates the zesty scent of juicy plums enhanced with sandalwood, patchouli, and balsamic notes. These new fragrances invite us to embark on a scent-filled voyage through a realm of gentleness, indulgence, and elegance.


No special edition would be complete without the creative flair of an artist. The imaginative artwork of British illustrator Clym Evernden breathes life into Diptyque’s packaging, labels, and containers. Evernden beckons us to see the Signature candle collection anew through a series of expressive, imaginative sketches, narrating a fanciful tale of Paris where the exterior of Café Verlet mirrors that of the first Diptyque store. His artwork, peppered with British wit and a dash of poetic charm, highlights the unique character of the collection and the artist’s vision. These gourmet candles from Diptyque and Café Verlet pay homage to the sweet pleasures of life, celebrating sensory delights and Parisian grace. This exclusive and jubilant scent experience offers a chance to immerse oneself in the coziness of a Parisian café by Diptyque – a universe filled with treats to relish fully.

The collection becomes available on April 2nd and can be found at Mecca and diptyqueparis.com.


Established in 1880 as Paris’s oldest coffee supplier and initial roastery, it caters to aficionados of the finer things with over thirty single-origin coffees and an equal number of teas from across the globe. Nestled behind the Palais Royal gardens, Maison Verlet continues its coffee roasting legacy, seeking the ideal blend of subtle flavors and perfect balance. At its café located at 256 rue Saint Honoré, adorned with 1920s-inspired decor, time slows down as patrons enjoy a coffee paired with a piece of chocolate or a seasonal pastry.
