Have you ever searched for a candle that was truly seasonless, only to come up empty-handed? Well, I most certainly have. Luckily, my quest for the perfect year-round candle has finally come to an end ... because the fabulous, fantastic Diptyque Baies Candle has come into my life.
This candle is one of the most famous in the entire Diptyque line, thanks to its delectably sweet combination of black currant leaves and Bulgarian rose essences. When I first started burning this candle at home, my roommate poked his head out of his room and said, "That smells AMAZING."
Now, you'd think it would be heady and cloying, wouldn't you? You would be incorrect. It's somehow strong but soft at the same time, and fills the room without ever feeling overpowering. In a word, the candle is delightful.
