I’m in love with a 4-inch glass cup full of wax that permeates my house with roasted chestnuts on a plume of light vanilla, which just renders that toasty nut smell slightly milky.
One of the Diptyque limited edition holiday candles, Marons Grille (roasted chestnuts) may force me to beg them desperately to keep making them or I’m faced with buying about 20 of them just to have around. Surely everyone will understand the reason for no Christmas this year?
I’ve never though Diptyque had great throw on candles, but this is decent, mostlly because it is soft and needs to stay soft, so the lighter throw works. It had everyone coming into the house asking what that smell was.
I also got the Benzoin one, but I can’t tell you much about it except it smells rich and all incensey right out of the box. I’ve been too busy with my roasting chestnuts to pay it much mind. I do promise to get to it eventually!
Now, the price tag is $68 at Beautyhabit, but if you use the code instyle, you’ll get 20% off, so that makes it a bit more reasonable’ish? Well, not really, but it doesn’t cost so much, at least.
That’s it that’s all I’ve got today. Life intervened, but please feel free to use comments to talk about whatever you like! Favorite holiday candle, smell, whatever! Roasted chestnuts and cinnamon and clove are mine. Pretty traditional there.
