    Default Need some candle recommendations

    I'm looking for a nice candle.

    I'm looking for the following:
    a cedar-based one
    a coniferous one
    a "warm" one
    a fruity/floral one

    Let's stay away from incense smells, unless there are mere hints of it.

    Has anyone smelled Burning Rose by Byredo?

    Cedar-based: Le Labo Cedre 11 (haven't tried)
    Coniferous: Diptyque Cypres, Foret Givree (limited edition)
    Warm: Diptyque Santal, Patchouli
    Fruity/floral: Diptyque Baies

    As you can see I really like Diptyque. I think you can't go wrong with the brand - the quality is great.

    Anything DW Home for me. All the candles I've tried of theirs are "richly scented" and they have a huge variety. The smell is great filling rooms easily and lasting right until the wax has burnt out,
    Currently wearing: Aventus by Creed
