A MAGICAL COLLECTION | To celebrate the end of the year, Pierre Marie & diptyque invent a winter legend staging spirits from an imaginary folklore.
A universal & wonderful story, similar to the ones we tell at night, in which candles get magical powers. An enchanting collection reminding us of childhood memories, when, at the gleam of a candle light, we were looking for the shiver of an invocation.
THE LEGEND OF THE NORTH | A VIGIL WHERE CANDLES ARE THE KEYS TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY
Three travelers coming from the South, the East and the West gathered at the beginning of the longest night of winter in the North, where lands are eternally covered with snow, to discover its secret. At the darkest hour, the three travelers sat in a circle and begun their vigil. One after the other, they lit a candle and called upon the spirit of their region.
The Spirit of the South, a greedy bear owning a magical bell that transforms rock to almond paste, revealed that the golden compass would appear before the sun first rays burst.
The Spirit of the West, a mermaid with a mane of cascading pearls waving the sea while dancing under the moon, revealed that the golden compass could grant any wish made just before sunrise.
The Spirit of the East, a deer leaving in a pine tree forest, illuminating trees to guide lost travelers, revealed where the golden compass was hidden.
