The Splurge - Black Baies Diptyque Candle


      After coming across countless Instagrams of Diptyque candles (snapped by the super fashionable crowd and more), I had to discover on my own the allure of Diptyque. Last month, I stepped into the Diptyque store in Columbus Circle, and I was entranced by the aroma of the store. It was like being in a perfumery, except there was a whole table of candles that could make your own home smell like the scents you were smelling at that exact moment! Being the deal-hunter I am, I refrained from purchasing then and there, but I did some scent research to determine which scents I loved. Thus, when SpaceNK was offering $20 off a $75 purchase or more, I definitely splurged!


      Baies is Diptyque's most popular scent, but I absolutely also loved Violette (violet & iris), Roses, and Figuier (fig tree). The smell of Baies (black currants & roses), is intoxicating! It smells mostly fruity, but every now and then I get a whiff of greens and roses. The black Baies candle burns for at least 90 hours if you take care of your candle such as letting it burn for at least 2 hours at a time, and trimming the wick after you blow it out. The throw of the candle is so strong, and it's definitely a lot stronger than the Bath and Body Works candles (which I still love) that are my usual go-to candles. Lastly, while I'll be sad to have burned through the entire candle, I'm going to be happy to repurpose the chic black Baies glass holder!
