Perhaps this little Diptyque obsession of mine has taken over my life (not to mention my bank balance… wow), but I couldn’t not purchase this perfectly packaged pastel pick when I was in duty-free recently. It looks like it was made for me!
I file candle purchases under ‘self-care’, they completely transform my mood in the evenings and really contribute to me feeling like I have my shit together. Maybe my house is piled high with recycling, maybe I’m making to-do lists filled with tasks I’ve already completed, but I light a dreamy scented candle and I finally feel like I have it all figured out.
The Diptyque Rosa Mundi Candle was definitely an impulse puchase! There wasn’t even a tester out to give it a whiff, but I made the right decision – it’s smells divine. I think rose scents can go either way – there’s the vibrant, powdery grandma scents, and there’s the enchanting, musky, floral, sophisticated notes of rose that speak to me loud and clear. This falls in the latter category.
If I had to compare this to something, I’d say it’s quite like the original Stella McCartney EDP. It’s so delicious, but in a very feminine, seductive way – how a scent should be.
Because of this, I’ve opted to place it on my bedside table. I get subtle whiffs of it all the time!
And the best bit? I haven’t even lit it yet! I swear the fragrance has already filled the room!
If you’re after something a little bit special, treat yourself to Rosa Mundi. It’s a dream come true for candle lovers.
