I know I'm not the only candle enthusiast here, and I can't think of a more appropriate forum to post my thoughts on the random candles I burn all the time. So I figured I might as well try to start a thread and see if anyone would join me...
We all put so much thought into our perfumes - what do the candles we're burning smell like???
I'll kick it off with a fun one:
Today, I burned Diptyque La Belle.
It's the "Beauty" half of their La Belle et la Bête (the beauty and the beast) set.
Smelling up close, I mostly smelled coriander (which has kind of a watered-down berry smell to it) with some green in the background (apparently geranium). The smell it threw around the room, though, was more of a lemony tea smell that reminded me of Heeley's Verveine, which is a verbena scent. There was something creamy and honeyed about it, too - it wasn't as watery as I'm making it sound. It was quite nice, and bright and fresh enough to be appropriate for warm weather.
