The Fancy Candle Powers That Be heard our
prayers whines and have decided to bless us with a late winter Diptyque sale. Beginning next Wednesday, March 4th at 9:30am, the French fragrance brand is bringing its discounted candles, perfumes, room sprays, and lotions to Century 21's new 'Edition' sample sale space.
Yes, it's a different venue for Diptyque, which could mean all sorts of changes. Will there be price increases? (Last year, the brand hiked its standard sample candles from $30 to $35.) Will the sale sell out before its Friday end date? (It's happened before.) Will someone bring a baby? (Possibly.) Will anyone who brings a baby be the subject of many, many disgruntled tweets? (Definitely.) All will be revealed soon, as we blog our way through this thing.
Wednesday, March 4th through Friday, March 6th. Wed, 9:30am-6pm; Thurs, 10:30am-8pm; Fri, 9:30am-3pm. C21 Edition, 21 Dey St between Church St and Broadway (212-227-9092).
