I recently bought Cire Trudon's "Balmoral" candle and it's heaven!

I'm a newly converted Yankee Candle fan. Their candles are amazing. I'm burning Summer Scoop right now and it smells divine, like berry ice cream with whipped cream on top, mmm.

I pick up mine from Anthropologie which does some unique scents like almond & maraschino cherry. I love the packaging.

As an appreciation gift, my cousin's fiance sent Aquiesse candles, which are honestly AMAZING. She sent over Peruvian Musk and Egyptian Pomegranate, which is especially my favorite. Im literally addicted to smelling it, whether its burning or not. While they're a bit pricey, they're not as pricey as Diptyque. When one of my candle's are done, I'm definitely going to purchase another one.

I also like Henri Bendel's citrus candle, but I don't own it yet.

These days I just burn incense. Much longer-lasting and more pervasive smell.

I mostly burn incense or Yankee Candle tarts.

My absolute favorite candles are Cire Trudon, followed by Diptyque, and then Yankee Candle (also ranked in price from highest to lowest).

I prefer relatively "masculine" candles (nothing that smells like food and definitely nothing that smells like the sea), so I'm burning a diptyque fue de bois atm.

Oh, I've never seen that candle! I have the fragrance. I also wear Fresh Life, and like the candle in that scent as well.

Typically I get them in gift sets or loyalty rewards, so I haven't bought one on its own yet.

I've bought Diptyque candles before, but I find them insanely expensive. Basically my criterion for luxury products is, Do I have to spend that much to get the experience and/or product I really want? For me, the answer is no.

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.

Diptyque's "Benjoin." Unfortunately this was only available for limited time and already sold out on their site so now I'm wondering if I should sell an organ and stock up now while I can
