Cult Parisian fragrance-maker Diptyque opened on the Upper East Side last Thursday night, becoming the second of three perfume boutiques to join a six-block stretch of Madison Avenue before the end of December. The shop, at Madison and 76th Street, carries the same range of scents, body washes, and candles as the Bleecker Street location, which opened almost exactly a year ago as a pop-up (it later went legit, of course.)

At $65, the candles are both a big draw and a cause of much fiscal anxiety. This actually makes them great presents, since you're not only giving the recipient a pretty object but also relieving them of the burden of being a person who would spend $65 for a candle. This year's holiday line is especially pretty, with decorations inspired by the traditional Polish folk art of paper-cutting—a reflection of Diptyque's early history as a creator of textile prints.
