On a gray,rainy Spring day it is time to focus on small treats to brighten your day. Candles are a lovely and inexpensive way to decorate and personalize your space. There are so many great candles to purchase today but I remain partial to classic French Diptyque candles for their elegant simplicity and scents. Once upon a time before the internet, you could only purchase these candles in small shops in Paris or New York. I first purchased a set from the original Diptyque shop in Paris in Saint Germain on a Spring visit with my husband seventeen years ago. There is also a shop on Madison Avenue in New York. But, of course, now you can also purchase online or in department stores. I am partial to the Feu de Bois scent in the Fall and Winter. I am plotting my new candle selection for Spring and am leaning toward Jonquille. Whatever your candle choice, having one close by is sure to inspire.
