Candles excite me, Christmas candles really excite me and Diptyque Christmas candles make me lose my shit. The Diptyque Legende du Nord set contains the three Christmas candles for 2018 and they are gorgeous.
Diptyque have created the Legende du Nord set for Christmas 2018 and it’s a good one. Together with illustrator Pierre Marie, the candles are beautifully designed and smell incredible. I had the Christmas collection a couple of years ago and Pierre Marie had designed those candles too which were incredible.
They have created a winter’s legend that awakens the spirits from imaginary folklore. In this wonder-filled story, Diptyque candles take on magical powers. Each candle, through its design and scent, represents one of the spirits from the legend and holds a secret that will be revealed through a conjuring ceremony on the longest night of the year.
The legends involve a pearly-haired mermaid who churns the waters, a greedy bear with a magic bell and a magnificent deer who lives in a pine forest full of lights.
The Diptyque Legende du Nord Set consists of the three Christmas candles which are 70g each, so a bit smaller than the full size, but they’re still a good size and you get 3 candles, so if you’re a Diptyque fan then this is a great little set. I love their candles all year long, but there is something so special about their Christmas ones.

Is there anything more festive than the scent of pine? I think not. I have an artificial Christmas tree, so I like to have a pine scented candle at Christmas to make up for the lack of scent from my tree. The scent is woody, warm and utterly divine and your room will be filled with the gorgeous scent of pine. This candle has been inspired by the legend of a deer living in a mysterious snowy pine forest lit by magical lights.
If you like the scent of almonds then you are going to adore this candle. Personally, I hate the taste of almonds but I do like the smell. It’s not too sweet, but it will have you craving marzipan. It has been inspired by the legend of a greedy bear who has a magical bell that can transform anything into food (get me that bell!).
The final candle in the set is a stunner. With notes of amber, lavender, benzoin and vanilla, this is warm and perfect to have burning by the bed on a cosy winter’s evening. It has been inspired by a mermaid who churns the water at night to keep sailors ashore. I think this one has to be my favourite.
