It is hard to believe, but it snowed today again. It started as sleet and then turned to a snowy rain. It’s getting a bit disheartening and I am tempted to think that spring will never arrive.
At Christmas, I was given a Feu de Bois Candle by Diptyque Paris that smelled like a crackling wood fire in an old library, a scent that evoked many childhood memories. It was perfect for the winter months, but now that it’s almost April, I am ready for some warmer weather and a garden of flowers!
I was at Halcyon House Antiques on Saturday, and they had the most glorious display of candles, behind which was a miserable afternoon with rain coming down sideways!
The one I eventually selected, the Seda France Pagoda Candle - French Tulip is the most realistic scent that I’ve ever had. My house smells like a garden! I am not big on artificial scents, and have found that some of the French-made candles have the most natural scents. The packaging is great and the glass candle-holder has a toile print etched into it. I especially liked how Halcyon House Antiques paired these candles with their great pagoda papers and note-books.
Do you have a favourite candle? Please share, as I am always looking for new ones!
