The Diptyque sample sale opened its doors to VIP patrons at 4pm today. Though I wasn't able to attend, fellow Mizhattanites were kind enough to send in their takes on the sale. And so, here's a quick rundown of what you can expect tomorrow.
With the change of venue to Century 21, it is a huge relief to know there has not been any jump in prices when compared to previous events. Everything is still up to 50% off retail with standard size candles marked down to $35 and minis priced at $17. In addition, the same 15 item limit (standard candle is set at 10 per person) is in effect once again to try and prevent hoarding. I'm told saavy scent shoppers will be disappointed to hear that fan favorite Baies in standard size was in limited supply and much of it was grabbed up by early bird shoppers. However, there is an abundance of minis, holiday editions, box sets, and body care products still available for tomorrow's public opening. Other sale tidbits include fig box sets priced at $40 while Feu de Bois box sets were $70. Finally, it should be noted that the checkout line moved at an incredibly slow pace so make sure to bring your patience as you stand outside in the cold or wait inside to pay.
I will be there bright and early tomorrow to cover the opening day sale line so check in on Twitter and keep a look out for the full Mizhattan report. For those lucky enough to score an invite to today's preview, I kindly ask that you share your insight on the sale with your fellow Mizhattanites by dropping a line in the comment section below.
