I will be completely honest with you and tell you that I’m a Diptyque fanatic. The second you walk into my home, you’ll see a Diptyque diffuser on the dining table, along with candles all around the living room (I’m partial to the Santal and Vanille scents – they are some of the best candles available).
However, the spot where I adorn most of my Diptyque candles is actually the bathroom, as it lends a spa-like feel to a space that can otherwise feel quite plain. Therefore, when I heard that the famed candle brand was launching a new bathroom collection, I couldn’t wait. After all, I knew I would not be disappointed, and I was amazed when I first saw these pieces.
Designed in collaboration with porcelain manufacturer Manufacture de Couleuvre, Diptyque’s new ‘Beauty Alcoves’ collection has been created for consumers to find beauty in what would otherwise be considered very mundane options, such as soap holders and storage canisters. Across the nine-piece collection, I was amazed at the exquisite attention to detail and high-quality craftsmanship each piece offered. Is $72 for a toothbrush holder incredibly expensive? Absolutely. Does look great? Obviously.
The new Diptyque bathroom collection
For displaying toothbrushes or makeup brushes, the Diptyque Oval Tumbler is a clear winner. Unglazed biscuit porcelain lends it its shine, and it’ll sit perfectly on the side of your bathroom sink.
Going off of the seashell vibe of the collection, this pretty pocket mirror is embossed with fragments of recycled shells. This means each piece has its own unique, colorful design, so you can never purchase the same one twice.
It wouldn’t be a Diptyque collection without a space to store your candles, of course. This classic, seashell-shaped candle holder can even be used as a little trinket tray—think a space to store rings, keys, and coins.
If your guests enjoy a selection of hand soaps and lotions, make sure they’re placed beautifully in the Diptyque Oval Hand Care Tray. The interlinked curves create a one-of-a-kind shape that’s sure to grab all the attention.
This dishwasher-safe oval soap holder allows you to make sure your favorite Diptyque classic soap never accidentally falls into the sink. The ribbed design prevents slippage, and the biscuit porcelain is chic and stylish.
