I’ll be entirely honest: I treasure the finer things in life, and by “finer things” I mean “expensive stuff and anything with a French name.” This is precisely how I became infatuated with Paris-based candle-crafter and parfumeur (ooh, I just love that word) Diptyque. A cult favorite of fashion people and impossibly chic trust fund babies world-over, if the packaging alone doesn’t make you want to replace every candle in your house with one of their gorgeous glass jars, the compellingly complex scents will. Ever since I stumbled across the brick-and-mortar store a few years back, I’ve been coveting their products with an ardency formerly reserved for shoes (and, who am I kidding, Indian food). While at this point in my life my conscience doesn’t allow for a $65 candle, nor a $45 scented oval (though I’ll happily hand over my mailing address should you want to send me a gift), I can totally get on board with their solid perfumes. Poured into weighty black cases engraved with the iconic Diptyque logo and protected by a small velvet pouch, just carrying one of these tiny treasures in your purse is enough to make you feel like a more refined, more fabulous, more interesting, better-traveled, better-looking person. It’s magic. I swear. They smell pretty good, too — my signature scent is Eau Duelle, a smoky, spicy take on vanilla. [$48, Diptyque]
