Orange You Glad It’s Spring?-------
There haven’t been a ton of April showers to bring out this spring’s May flowers, but unseasonably warm temperatures across the U.S. mean that they’re coming up anyway. Hyacinths, daffodils, crocuses, and tulips are popping up all over New York’s limited green space—which, combined with today’s bright sunshine and a brand-new offering from Diptyque’s Le Langage des Fleurs collection, has put us in a particularly good mood. The French fragrance brand is known the world over for its stellar floral compositions, which it refers to as “scent poems”; it never ceases to amaze us when we produce our Beauty Essentials feature how many well-heeled women—Emma Watson and Florence Welch among them—count one of its burnable blooms as a can’t-live-without part of their beauty routine. The latest release from the 12-piece range is Choisya, an unabashed tribute to orange blossoms. Available as a scented candle and scented oval—which can be suspended from your closet to slowly waft its delectable smell over all of your hangables—inhaling its sweet aroma is making us feel a little less bad about spending this glorious day indoors.
