I seem to have gone a little Advent Calendar crazy this year (there’s going to about 6 in total), and this one from Diptyque has to be one of my favourites. I love their candles, so the thought of 25 treats is almost too much for me to handle. I am so excited. Ok, so it costs an arm and half a leg (£250), but if you can look past the price, then this is just the loveliest of lovely calendars.
If you don’t want to know what is included in this calendar, then look away now.
