Day 788's giveaway!

This giveaway has closed, thank you for your interest!

We're very excited to announce a giveaway with Revival Uncommon Goods, a wonderful shop in Chattanooga we first visited in April.


Maybe you have seen a Diptyque candle on the pages of your favorite magazine? Or read about a certain discerning celebrity who insists that her dressing rooms be outfitted exclusively with Diptyque? Or that Parisian designer John Galliano chose Diptyque as the company to create his signature scent "marrying marrying myrrhe and firewood scents."

One hundred percent natural essential oils are mixed with wax and hand-poured to create the lush candles with braided-cotton wicks. Diptyque is Revival's most sought-after fragrance collection -- they even spray all of their gifts and packages with Diptyque's parfum d’ambiance -- and today they are offering a special-edition green-fig scented candle to one of you, our lovely readers.

To enter, leave a comment on this post (if you do not have a blog, please leave an e-mail address) by 9pm Eastern time on Friday, August 28, 2009.

Good luck, and a big thank you to Rodney at Revival for a lovely giveaway!

This is one of my all time favorites. William T Georgis used the black candle Diptyque fig in his Panic room at Kips Bay this year! It was amazing. Every one that came into the room commented on how wonderful the scent was. This company is hands down a winner every time. Love the green candle.
