IMG_2362 Diptyque as a brand is well aware it inspires a certain kind of devotion. Candles from the Paris-based company that was founded in 1961 by a group of artists are so popular in the fashion and design worlds that the brand has become the undisputed king of the luxury candle market. You may have heard of its perennial bestseller Baies, which smells of “rose and blackcurrant” and has been Diptyque’s most popular scent for years; images of Baies candles (often strategically placed next to vases of peonies) are commonplace on Instagram.

Check out below my top two picks:

Feu De Bois: The classic Feu de Bois scent is beautifully presented in a mouth-blown glass, colored during production for a shiny finish that lets you see the candle flame. Feu de Bois is a very sophisticated blend of rare wood essences. It evokes the characteristic fragrance of a real wood fire.

Ambre: I love Ambre, it is a bold yet warm and elegant procession that extracts woods vetiver and patchouli, enhanced with radiant anise seed, insolent spices, mysterious incense, cistus and tonka bean. You can purchase here from Saks Fifth Avenue online.
