Body Lotion (*)
Not content with producing some of the most coveted candles around, French brand Diptyque have set their sights on conquering the beauty world too. Combining their ability to create luxury fragrances for your room, the transition was only ever going to be a success.
Weirdly, the only link I can find to the shampoo is a version made for their hotelier collection, and doesn’t seem to be available to buy at Space N.K. or John Lewis. Nevertheless, it still might give you an indication to the standard of their line. Suitable for all hair types, the shampoo has a fresh scent which is faintly citrusy and extremely light. A little goes a long way and the lather is great. Other than my hair being very soft, the results were pretty much the same as any shampoo from the high street. Nothing to rave about, so no tears over it’s availability.
However, something I would recommend have a look out for is the Fresh Lotion. I’m really making a determined effort to use body lotion or body butter every day and this has made it very very easy. Incorporating sunflower, avocado and macadamia nut oil as well as shea butter, the lotion provides maximum hydration with an orange blossom fragrance. A little pricey but definitely worth it. Never before have I received so many complements about a fragrance, and especially when that fragrance is in fact my body butter and not a perfume. Once a tiny bit of lotion is applied, it sinks in so fast, and yet the scent lasts all day.
After trying out these two products, I think the safest items from their line would be their lotions where the brand excel in giving their products the same high quality scents as their candles and perfumes.
Have you tried Diptyque before? Are you tempted to pick something up?
