|Diptyque: Baies // Roses // Mimosa // Jasmin|
This is going to sound rather silly, but here it goes... What's the big deal with Diptyque candles? Will someone give me the skinny? Am I missing out on something? For years, I've seen these French fragrances grace the pages of endless shelter magazines and home decor blogs. Chic and hipster bloggers like Katie Armour and Emily Schuman have recycled Diptyque jars scattered throughout their homes, filled with colored pencils and makeup brushes. Aside from the simple and elegant design and packaging, will someone tell me what's so fabulous about this $60 luxury candle? What makes it different than the $20 candle? I'm just dying to know. Do you recommend a particular scent? Is it crazy to spend this much on a fancy-pants candle? As the "Treat Yo' Self" queen, I'm down with the occasional splurge. From what I've read, they burn for 50-60 hours and the scent is strong, so a little goes a long way. Diptyque lovers, please fill me in. I'll do just about anything to keep my home smelling so fresh and so clean.
