See what I mean? I love the effect on the walls. And note the amazing chandelier, which IS made of upside down empty Diptyque candles. Gorgeous!
I love the typography on the bag:
Right now Diptyque is doing a ” Le Langage des Fleurs” collection, consisting of floral fragrances in special illustrated boxes. On the website they illuminate the unique meaning behind each flower.
Violette has a sweet, almost candy-like scent, and apparently stands for Modesty. Verveine is an herbal candle with a bright lemon scent. I actually bought it because it reminded me of Lemon Pledge 🙂 – minus the gross chemical component. That scent of lemon just says clean to me, so I can’t wait to burn this after a nice apartment cleaning. Good way to reward yourself!
And while we were wandering around the West Village, enjoying the beautiful quiet neighborhood vibe and sunny weather, we spotted a true NYC icon:
Sarah Jessica Parker! SHE WALKED RIGHT PAST US ON THE SIDEWALK!
Words cannot describe our girly excitement. She was wearing boyfriend jeans with a leather jacket and a fabulous bright red crossbody bag. And no, the above picture was not taken by me when we saw her. Me and my sis were real cool about it – only a little gasping and gawking at the back of her head as she rushed by.
