Hi friends! Where does the time go?? Summer has once again come to a close and before you know it the holidays will be here. The last few years I’ve been too late in posting content for the holidays.. but not this year! I’m starting extra early lol.

Since Diptyque just announced their new holiday collection for 2023 which includes their new advent calendar, I thought a post on candle advent calendars might be cool!

I’ll be covering Diptyque’s candle advent calendar a little more in-depth, but also going over some alternatives and how you can use them as great gift ideas for this holiday season.

Candle Advent Calendars From Familiar Brands

Diptyque Paris

Diptyque brings out limited edition products pretty frequently and has a new set of holiday items each year. This includes a yearly advent calendar that contains 11 mini candles along with other luxury scented goodies from the brand.

Yes, it comes with a hefty price tag, but if you are looking for a cool gift idea for someone who is already a Diptyque candle lover or are looking for a cool way to explore some of their scents yourself, this might just be the perfect purchase.

The calendar comes with some of our favorite scents from the brand.

Voluspa

Voluspa has a 12 day candle advent calendar that comes with 12 of their Japonica candle scents each in cute embossed glass jars.

This one is a little more affordable than the Diptyque one so that’s a positive. I find Voluspa candle scents to be a little softer than many of the other similar brands which is a good thing if you don’t like candles that are too overpowering.

Once again, a great way to explore different Voluspa scents to find what you like. Included are some scents that made our favorite scents list for Voluspa.
