Enjoy a moment of nostalgia with Diptyque’s Le Madeleine candle, which will transform your home into a French bakery with the scent of freshly-made madeleines. Created by the three original founders of Diptyque, the candle takes inspiration from their Normandy property, “Les Lias.” After purchasing the property, they discovered it was once the post office used by the great Marcel Proust for sending his correspondence to Paris.

The three founders realized they couldn’t let this opportunity pass them by. The three came up with a universally loved scent, inspired by France and childhood. The candle’s fragrance is what you would smell while standing in line at the Maison Cazelle bakery, where the iconic lemon-flavored madeleines were first-created.

This lemony, buttery scent is the latest addition to the impressive range of scented candles created by Diptyque – a company that has been delivering world-renowned perfumes and fragrances since 1961.

Produced in France, the candle is presented in a stunning hand-crafted, porcelain vessel. Each pot is hand-dipped, meaning every candle set is unique.

Shipped in an attractive box, this Diptyque candle would make an ideal gift for any pastry or Paris-loving friend. Remaining true to its Proust inspiration, the La Madeleine candle combines a light fragrance with a gorgeous container, seamlessly walking the line between home decor and time machine to childhood reveries.

“If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.” ~ Marcel Proust
