[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] If you don’t know the Baies scent, it’s a rosy, fruity, green affair that gives generously on fragrance – my kitchen yesterday was a joy to be in. The brand is using lines to play with scent and light as their 60th anniversary collection. While it’s hard to muster the same enthusiasm for lines as it might be for, let’s say their Christmas graphics which were exceptional, there is something hypnotic about them – they’re clean and oddly calming.
I’m really gravitating towards rose scents at the moment – maybe it’s because spring is at least a little bit on the horizon – so it’s nice to have a play on traditional rose scents. I think you may find it blackcurrant-ish – that’s the intention anyway – with juicy notes that are sweet enough to lighten the mood but not cloying or sickly.
Apparently, as a nation, we are mad for home scents and dry shampoos at the moment – those are the things floating our boats. Which is weird because I am only just making regular use of dry shampoos (mostly to sort out a floppy fringe which is now too long and I’m dreading taking the scissors to it) when before it was very much an occasional thing. I’ve always loved home scents in candle form. One of my favourite rose candles is the Malin + Goetz one – which is completely out of stock just now…. I’m sure it’s related to hold ups that the pandemic has caused but as soon as they’re back I’ll do a review on that one because it’s delightful. Diptyque’s own (delicious) rose candle is also in the graphic collection. I’m enjoying putting Baies on the burn – when the flame is flickering, the lines do draw you into that candle light trance but I’d love it with or without to be honest. It’s £56 for the larger version HERE, non-affiliate HERE. I should point out that the Baies candle (and the others) without the lines is £49 HERE. You could always get your Sharpies out.

It looks really lovely! Perfect for Valentine’s Day gift!
Love a rose scent that is green and fresh, rather than that powdery, sweet rose fragrance that some seem to have. Thanks for sharing! x
Thanks again Jane, sounds gorgeous. I was given the roses dyptique candle for Christmas but haven’t opened it yet as I’m not a fan of rose, so thought I’d wait until I’m able to smell it when we’re all able to shop again, in case I need to return it. Have you smelled the Roses candle, if so, can you compare the smell to anything?
I really like their rose candle – it’s more rose bud than full on blousy rose but if you don’t like rose it probably won’t be for you. It’s sweet but fresh but indisputably rose.
