Ever found yourself wondering “Why are Diptyque candles so expensive?”.
The Diptyque company offer a range of luxury fragrances, body care and candles that cost an incredible amount of money.
In this post, I wanted to specifically look at the Diptyque brands candle products to evaluate whether they are truly worth their luxury price tag.
Why Are Diptyque Candles So Expensive?
The CEO of Diptyque, Fabienne Mauny, is aware that consumers scoff at the price tag of Diptyque candles and other Diptyque products. However, she says that they are worth every penny.
The businesswoman has claimed that Diptyque candles are made from only the finest ingredients and materials.
With every part of each individual candle being created consciously and carefully from raw materials.
As the candles are also not mass-produced with the materials and wicks set also done by hand, additional costs occur, all of which is added to the final consumer cost of the product.
Where To Buy Diptyque Candles
Diptyque have a flagship boutique in Paris where you can buy the Diptyque candles and other Diptyque products in person.
However, unless you are visiting the City of Lights, you will need to find them elsewhere.
Diptype candles are sold in Amazon, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Space NK, John Lewis, and also a scattering of boutiques around the world.
They are located in the UK, the US, Spain, the UAE, and many other countries. With their website keeping an up-to-date list of supplier locations.
How To Save On Diptquie Candles
Considering the high prices of Diptyque candles, you will naturally look at ways to save on them.
However, it’s rare that these candles ever go on sale with the suppliers due to the demand.
Depending on the retailer you may be able to claim loyalty points or use a cashback credit card to claim some rewards from the purchase.
Once purchased, I recommend taking due care of your Diptquie candle in order to extend its life.
You can do this by allowing the entire surface of the candle to melt before blowing it out and trimming the wick to about half of a centimetre which will help it to burn longer without soot.
