Check Out This $400 Diptyque Advent Calendar (Plus 9 More Budget-Friendly Options)

Not content to own just the title of the official candle of your Instagram envy, Diptyque is again getting into the advent calendar game this holiday season.

For $390, you can bring home a Diptyque-branded advent calendar (above), stuffed with 25 tiny one-a-day treasures to help you count down the days until Christmas. Inside you’ll find sample-size miniatures of scents and skincare from the French apothecary, as well as a few extra-mini 35g (1.2oz) candles and one regular mini 70g (2.4 oz, votive-sized) one.

I personally love the idea of buying yourself an advent calendar, because who says the joy of discovering daily treasures should end at puberty? If you can swing the $400 price tag as the ultimate treat-your-self gift this holiday season, then go on with your bad self. If not, you should know Diptyque isn’t the only one getting into the adult advent calendar game.
