I just did a search for candles and nothing came up. I don't even know if it fits in this forum but does anyone buy high-end candles like Diptyque or Byredo? I am debating between the two, freesia vs bibliotheque. Any feedback on either brand?
Right now I'm burning a Massimo Dutti candle, I think the scent is Lemongrass and something else... Maybe basil? I love it, it's very fresh. But Yankee Candles are definitely my favourite. Their scent lasts for ages and they have such an amazing selection. I've also tried out almost every single Ikea candle in existance. I love them, but the scent really doesn't last...
I always make sure to have a Diptyque Myrrhe candle in my bedroom, and sometimes even travel with it; it defines home for me ever since my sister gave me one about five years ago... At 30 something euros they're an affordable occasional luxury.
Not a candle, but I also make sure I have a supply of old Japanese incense from Kyoto called Kobunboku, used for decades by my grandmother It's the only incense I use and smells so pure, like ancient temples...
I abhor vanilla/coconut type flavors...a friend of mine was using a surprisingly nice cinnamonny one from Febreeze for her bathroom though, so one need not be snobby!
Would love to hear some more of your opinions on this topic!
for cheap candles in a million different scents i like to go to bath and bodyworks. their selection is insane and in addition to being reasonably priced they usually have good deals going on (like buy 3 get 1 free which you can usual mix with their body products). also their seasonal scents are amazing. this winter i was allllllll about their cinnamon roll candles.
