Before you explore Diptyque’s new Takashimaya store, take some time to get swept up in its visual magic the minute you step in—there are murals that conjure a world of French sophistication, wooden shelves scattered with an arresting array of décor objects, and elegant cabinets of curiosities that which are begging for you to open.
Now, doesn’t that feel like a feast for the eyes? Mirroring the charms of its boulevard Saint-Germain with a local twist, here, the five new things to explore at the newest Diptyque store to tickle your other senses.
1. Map Out Your Next Fragrance Purchase
Igniting your love for a new scented candle shouldn’t be that difficult and the five murals that are exclusive to Diptyque’s newest store will help you look past the smoke and mirrors. Categorised under arbres for wood, fleur for flowers, herbes for herbs, épices for spices, and fruits for well, fruits—all you have to do is to pick your favourite scent family before letting your nose decide on the one.
But take note, you should always burn a candle for a couple of hours upon the first lighting of it to ensure even burning for the next.

2. Scent Yourself From Head to Toe
Wouldn’t you want to turn a hot, long soak into a spa-like experience? You most certainly can with the complete range of Diptyque’s bath products at its newest store which range from a sumptuous body scrub to shower oils that are scented with the brand’s most-wanted perfumes like Do Son and L’Ombre dans l’Eau.
If you’re not in possession of a tub, there are other ways to indulge yourself in the shower like lathering up with the creamy Eau Rose Shower Foam or slathering on a body balm for baby-soft skin before bed.
3. Spring Clean in Style
Take your favourite Diptyque candle and now, use it to clean everything from your work table to the surfaces of your kitchen and toilet with its La Droguerie collection. Comprising of a complete set of cleaning products—a multi-purpose cleaner, odour-removing candle, dishwashing liquid, leather and wood lotion, and a fabric ceramic—each leaves a delicate scent of lavender, cedar, and fig as it cleans and buffs.
The dishwashing liquid and multi-purpose cleaner are also refillable but trust us, you are going to want to do so with Diptyque’s offerings.

4. Add Elegance to Your Routine
Besides prolonging the life of your candle by preventing any wax splatter or excessive soot from being produced, there is something elegant about putting a flame out with a long-stemmed snuffer. And Diptyque has the most sophisticated one that’s plated in the perfect shade of gold (read: not too yellow) with its top engraved with the brand’s iconic logo.
If you want to make the process even more bougie, Diptyque has also released a gold wick trimmer that’s equally worth the splurge. PS: Both items are selling quickly so make sure you visit Diptyque’s newest store soon.
5. Travel to Kyoto, Mexico, or Back in Time
Until flight tickets stabilise in price, why not take a short vacation scent-wise using Diptyque’s new Le Monde candles? Your one-time perfumed passport includes places like Kyoto’s zen gardens with the matcha notes of Temple des Mousses to the stone city of Mesa Verde in Colorado with Terres Blondes’s notes of wheat, burnt earth, and red cedar but you can experience them again as the candles are refillable for the first time in Diptyque’s history.
Our particular favourite happens to be Nymphée Merveilles which is inspired by Renaissance gardens in 16th-century Italy but its scent is anything but antiquated—sweet orange blossom, creamy jasmine and aromatic iris that livens up a room.
Diptyque’s new store at Takashimaya is located at 391 Orchard Rd, #B1 – 33A, Singapore 238872.
