How so, Diptyque?
While in Paris I tracked down the Diptyque store with no problem as the address is located on each of their wonderful candles, 34 Boulevard St-Germain. While there, I suffered from more than a little sticker shock though. The candles, which we all know aren't inexpensive here in the United States, cost more Euro than US dollars such as at bluemercury where I normally purchase them, let alone the exchange rate. Anyone have any clue as to why? I left without a souvenir and spent my money stocking up at Mariage Freres instead, which is 1/2 the price in Paris when compared to the US retailers!
