Burn Time: Roseros

Diptyque candles, though expensive, are my guilty pleasure.

Languid evenings, a flickering flame and elegant fragrance whilst reading a good book or a watching an engaging film is my favourite way to wind down.

Baies Noir is striking and smells of Roses and blackcurrant leaves. This is neither overly floral nor is it too sweet. Instead it is rather surprisingly clean scent.

Diptyque has recently released "Roseros", a limited edition duo for Valentines Day in collaboration with Kuntzel + Deygas. I was drawn to the illustrations on the boxes. The stylistic depiction of the time old tale of Beauty and her Beast captured my imagination.

The Eros Candle, represented by the Beast is a wild rose infused with benzoin, cedarwood and sandalwood. This is my favourite of the couple.

The Rose Candle is a sweet and feminine romantic garden rose.

As with all Diptyque candles, these burn very cleanly and evenly.


  1. Ooh! Roses and blackcurrant leaves sounds lovely! And the valentines edition packaging looks so pretty! =D I must get round to trying some of these candles for myself! I don't get an awful lot of time to curl up with a book these days though :(

    We have a Rooibos Diptyque candle lurking in a cupboard at home. Might need to nab that!

  2. i dont really use candles but it looks like i ought to! and oh my candles in japan are so expensive... like the ones you're talking about :P

  3. mmm i LOVE sandalwood and wild rose! I dont like sweet/ rose scents so I dont think Id like the beauty candle.

  4. Mmmmm hon roses and blackcurrent leaves sounds incredible!!


    Ps. Hope you had a good weekend lady...and did you get your pocket money?

  5. Blackcurrant leaves, I've got to admit never heard of that one before that must be a heavenly smell.

    So intrigued now

  6. I love the design of the candles. So elegant. I've never been able to use scented candles though. I often feel like my nose is being overwhelmed and I wish it wasn't so sensitive ! Roses & blackcurrant sounds like a delicious combination !

    Hmm, is Diptyque the same company that manufacture candles for different kinds of rooms ? E.g. study, living room, bath room etc ?


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
