What The Best Diptyque Candles Actually Smell Like
While Eau Rose, Philosykos and Eau des Sens might be bestsellers in the personal fragrance category, Diptyque is famous for creating the best scented candles. Such is the love for Diptyque scented candles, people reuse the empty glass jars as storage for makeup brushes, eyeliners and mascaras.
Why We Love Diptyque CandlesFor us, it’s about the potency of the scent. Diptyque promises that its 70g candle will burn for 20 hours, 190g for 60 hours and 600g for 90 hours. While this isn’t out of the ordinary, what we love about Diptyque scented candles is that the fragrance fills the room. These are the kind the candles that can transform the mood of a room within minutes.
