Diptyque Limited-Edition Holiday Candle Set
There is nothing more delightful than receiving luxury candles and what better gift for a loved one or your home than Dyptique’s Limited-Edition Holiday Candle Set. Every detail about these candles are worth every penny spent as the candles come in glass jars speckled with real gold. Each scent is the epitome of the holiday season: “Biscuit,” smells like a gourmet cookie spiced with patchouli and cinnamon; “Snowflake” is all about the mimosa flower which is one that only blooms in winter months with hints of white musk, and the last one is “Sapin”, a woody, piney scent that warms your soul and home.

We love Aesop for its minimalist and clean aesthetic and it does look hella’ impressive in anyone’s bathroom – and not to mention all the products smell like a dream. The brand’s The Protector Home Trio makes for the perfect gift for any home or office space. There is some humor in this gift set as it includes “Poo Drops” which mask bad odours that might occur in the bathroom or otherwise, with just two or three drops. The set also includes a luxurious hand wash and room spray.
