The moment summer gives way to fall, my house turns into a cozy nest, filled with decorative pieces that conjure a sense of comfort and warmth. As an absolute candle lover, Diptyque's bestselling Baies Candle ($68) stands out as an elegant home decor essential. With its fresh notes of berries blended with flowery rose accents, it imbues my space with a deliciously cool aroma. I like to burn it in the living room to set a warm, inviting mood for myself when I'm unwinding after work, or to welcome guests. The fragrance will quickly fill any room it burns in, but I find it gentle on the nose.
Perhaps what I love most is that it's made from natural fragrances, plus Diptyque uses lead-free wicks and pure paraffin wax, so the quality is on par for the price. Packaged in a chic, minimal black and white box, anyone who unwraps the luxurious jar will be impressed, so the Baies candle doubles as an elevated housewarming gift. If you're not yet sold, it can burn for up to 50 or 60 hours, so although it's a splurge, you get the value you pay for.
Whether you're new to the brand or need an intro to high-end candles, the Baies Candle is a good place to start. Although it's a splurge, it's well worth the value.
