It seems as if Grand Central Terminal is having a bit of a Paris moment. As soon as the Hermès silk bar exited its Lexington Passage spot (as promised) at the end of last month, signage popped up for Diptyque, The Shophound reports. You could call it something of an opening spree for the fancy candle purveyor, which debuted its fourth Manhattan shop in Columbus Circle in December.
As for this location, there's no word yet on an opening date or whether it'll be as temporary as its predecessor, but we've reached out to the brand for more information and will update when we hear back. For now, all we know that Westchester and Connecticut commuters will be able to keep their "How to Shop Like a French Girl" game on point—at least for a little while longer.
Update: This location will open on Monday, February 9th and remain through the end of April, the brand tells us. Next week, they'll be carrying scents from the limited-edition Valentine's Day collection, as well as a selection of their signature offerings throughout their duration.
