Soak up your abode with Diptyque's iconic scents — the same that permeated the chapel where the Royal Wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was held

It's been a couple of days since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially got hitched, and while you already know all the sordid details of the royal wedding (from the gown to her beauty look and even what Meghan's celebrity friends were wearing), here's something we bet you don't know just yet — what the wedding space smelled like.

If the floral arrangements at St George's Chapel were anything to go by, let's just say that guests of the Royal Wedding (alongside the bride and groom) were treated to a pleasant, floral olfactory ambience that day. But on top of that, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opted to deck the chapel with renowned French fragrance house Diptyque's scented candles and room sprays. "We are extremely proud to have been chosen to scent such an important moment for Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex," said Fabienne Mauny, Global Managing Director of Diptyque. "We were touched to have been part of such a significant day, made more special as one of our founders, Desmond Knox Leet, was British. We hope the fragrance contributed to such a memorable day."

Diptyque's iconic floral and fruity scents made the cut, with the enigmatic Tubéreuse, warm and woody Figuier and sensual Roses filling the space with a heady spring-appropriate redolence. If you're keen on engulfing your room with the similar scents, here's how you can enjoy a Diptyque candle to full extent:

1. Let the candle burn for at least an hour to allow the wick to soak up the paraffin and burn properly. This helps to form a homogeneous melting pool, preventing the wax from hollowing out later on.

2. Don't forget to regularly re-centre and trim the candle wicks with a special wick-trimmer once you blow them out. Trimming it helps to control the amount of wax for the candle to light up the next time — this also ensures that there will be less soot formed while the candle burns. Each Diptyque candle can burn up to approximately 60 hours.
