On Thursday evening, the selection had seriously dwindled at the Diptyque sample sale. I made a quick stop into the space on Fifth Avenue hoping to find a bottle of L’Ombre dans L’Eau for a friend.
The place was pretty much cleaned out of merchandise except for fragrances and holiday candles. There were no more standard candles, room sprays, lotions, oils or candle accessories such as snuffers. Surprisingly, they had plenty of fragrances (eau de toilettes at $40/50ml and $55/100ml as well as a limited selection of roll-ons for $24), including the L’Ombre, Tam Dao, Philosykos, Don Son, Ofresia, L’Autre and more. There were also colognes (L’Eau de Tarocco, L’Eau de Neroli, L’Eau des Hesperides). A few testers for $27/200ml were still there.
The pricing had not been reduced and why should they with the high demand for the products. Holiday candles are still $34 for standard sizes and minis are at $16.
I asked a staffer if they would be restocking in the morning. He said “yes with more of the same as tonight.”
