Hope Thanksgiving was lovely for those who celebrated.
The past week was difficult. Not something I really want to write about but has left me exhausted and drained. So, a short post today.
I know I had said I wouldn’t add to my candles this holiday season, but I had to replace a skincare product that I was running out of, and it was deeply discounted for black Friday. I wasn’t planning on buying anything else in the silly sales, but then I thought ‘oh, what can a throw in given the discounts?’
Lo and behold, the online shop still had stock of the small Diptyque Xmas special edition of the Biscuit candle (someone commented about how good this is on a post, but I couldn’t find the comment again to give them credit for getting it into my head), so into the basket it went.
Diptyque calls it a holiday pastry fragrance which feels about right. Biscuit, patchouli and cinnamon. Really scrumptious, but not headache-inducingly sweet (apologies for the poor pic).
It arrived a couple of days ago, I smelled it and immediately put it aside (along with the sample of Byredo Mumbai Noise off eBay) as for the past few days I simply haven’t had the head space to pay attention.
In any case I opened again this morning it and huge sigh. That is lovely. Perfect for the season and different from the spice and leather candles I already have.
The presentation is pretty too. Always good to have pretty.
So, did you tell yourself no black Friday at all or indulge (even in a small way)?
