Diptyque dupes for a mere fraction of the Â£40 originals? ‘Where?‘, ‘How?‘, ‘Price?‘, I hear you ask as you grab your coat and begin hotfooting it out the door. Well that good ol’ place MUJI has come up trumps again. Not only a mecca for makeup storage they offer-up a pretty comprehensive candle collection that I’ve sniffed my way entirely though and come to the conclusion of some dupes for you. They’re spot on and coming in at Â£3.50 and Â£10.95 respectively, you really can’t go wrong. Here are the deats:
Diptyque Feu de Bois = MUJI Log Fire Tin Candle. Originally discovered by Meg, I’d been meaning to have a whiff of this forÂ months and sure enough it pretty much follows Feu de Bois note for note. Though not as aesthetically pleasing nor long-lasting, the bonfire smokiness is there conjuring up countryside cottage thoughts and Christmas nostalgia. It’s also a hit with the Boyfriend; it’s unisex people pleaser.
Diptyque Figuier = MUJI Green Fig Glass Candle. When perusing the candle stand my eyes were instantly drawn to a box emblazoned with those three magic letters ‘F’, ‘I’, ‘G’ on the side. What a surprise. A little more greeny and less warming than Figuier, which is no surprise given it’s name, it still operates around the same notes and fills the rooms with some figgy flavour for a quarter of the price.
Next time you’re buying them out of acrylic storage it may be worth throwing one of the above into your basket. That’s if you can manage it with your armfuls of drawers.
