Object of Desire: Diptyque Opoponax Candle

I’m pretty reliable when it comes to my signature scents: woodsy and lush or clean and green. Any mixture of these two makes my heart sing, which is why I’d like to introduce you to the scent most commonly found in my own home.

There’s something so comforting to me to have a signature scent for your house. That special note or two that the minute you smell it, you instantly feel at home. I have a particular love for this candle, which has a resin base and magical balsamic notes. The best way I can describe it is a lighter version of church incense with  some beautiful green notes.

Although the smaller votive travels with me wherever I go, the full-sized version of this candle lives in the window of my apartment and burns pretty much nightly, a signal that the day is done and that I am indeed home.

Oprah Winfrey once said that your home should rise to greet you. I consider this scent the aroma of a warm hug after a long day. Find a fragrance that does the same for you.
