Williams-Sonoma Home scented candles
There are electric or atomized scent sprays, warmed oil pots, potpourri, sachets, reed diffusers, and of course fresh flower bouquets. However my favorite method of perfuming our home is through good old-fashioned candles. They are so romantic and are a beautiful, simple indulgence.
I've sniffed around and found a couple of amazing scented candles. I've started a collection, and here are my favorites (starting with my most favorite!):
1. Diptyque Candles in Figuier (Fig) and Baies (Berries)
I am more of a sweet fruity, creamy, and woody person when it comes to scents, and both of these capture all of that and then some. Baies is their most popular scent, however Figuier is my personal favorite. I really prefer Diptyque over Jo Malone since their scents tend to be a little too citrus for my taste.
2. Williams-Sonoma Home scented candle in Safari
The Diptyque candles and this WSH pick are equally my ultimate favorites. Safari is warm and dare I say.... sexy! It has notes of leather and sandalwood - just divine. I was so disappointed when I found out they were discontinuing their home fragrance collection. Of course the first thing I did was scoop up everything they had in this scent.
3. Illume for Target candle in Vanilla Amber
Bargain find! This is another warm and comforting scent. Very sweet and spicy at the same time. It's a great deal, yet smells rich and un-diluted like most mass-produced candles.
4. Febreze Odor Eliminating Candles in Lavender Vanilla and Vanilla Refresh
Hands down these are the best in terms of price and accessibility. They are wonderful calming and delicious scents that really do banish awful odor! I keep a few in the kitchen and bathroom. Great everyday candles.
