Diptyque LA Pop-up

6 May

Diptyque-1

Mother’s Day is this weekend. Got a plan? Got a gift? I’m halfway there.

If you’re in Los Angeles and planning on running over to The Grove for an easy Anthropologie find… Don’t. It’s not there anymore. Big bummer.

Rumors have Sephora moving into the bigger space, but I’m not sure if that’s accurate. They sure could use more floor space though.

What you can find at The Grove now (and through May) is a gorgeous Diptyque Pop-Up shop, right outside Nordstrom and Crate & Barrel. It’s kind of a sensorial ode to the brand’s iconic fragrance collection… but I went to visit my candle obsession: Feu de Bois. It was love at first whiff years ago. The wafting scent fills a fireplace void in my little apartment.

The pop-up coincides with Diptyque’s latest launch—their first genderless eau de parfum. Called Eau de Minthé, it’s their interpretation of fougère (fern)—with notes of mint, patchouli, and geranium.

For myself, I found it too masculine. That said, it smelled amazing on the man next to me. Stop by for Mom or yourself and try all the distinctive scents from this exquisite Parisian fragrance house.

NOTE: Father’s Day in next month for those who plan ahead…

CityWalk Appeals to Beauty Shoppers

Nectar Bath Treats | Razzle Dazzle Donut Soap

Last I visited Universal CityWalk, it was all food and tourist shops. Which makes perfect sense for the locale. That said, I was presently surprised when I popped by this week to discover some new beauty-tailers.

First, there’s the mother ship: Sephora moved in! And it’s a good one. Many coveted collections line the walls. Picture brand new, untouched rows of BITE lipsticks, Pat McGrath palettes, Huda, Anastasia & Dior glosses, Tatcha eye brighteners, MILK sticks, Kate Somerville serums, and more. Heaven for an unapologetic product lover like myself. Stop by!

Then I discovered what can only be described as the love child of LUSH and Sprinkles. It’s a natural body shop called Nectar Bath Treats—just diagonal from Sephora. Wall to wall popsicle soaps, milkshake soaks, and handmade fruit smoothie scrubs. For bath lovers, it’s a dizzying experience. Crumbly Ice cream soaps, fizzy bath bombs, and macaron bathing treats. A one-stop gift shop—perfect (and safe!) for kids, too.

There’s even a make-your-own fragrance bar. I opted for a blend of vanilla and sugar body butter. Because when in Rome.

Now that I think about it… these locations are genius. By the time you leave Nectar, you want to get your hands on a treat you can actually eat. And whatdya know…there’s are about 6 candy stores within a stone’s throw. Brilliant!
