Though you would be safe in assuming that we’re not really the girliest bunch of beauty editors you'll ever meet, and thus not especially into the heavy florals when it comes to our preferred perfumes, we really rile against being put in any sort of “box,” you know? Don't label us! We contain multitudes. For one thing, we're big on scented candles. No less personal than perfume (you’re sort of embroiled in it), though less skin-immediate. Don't you want whatever space you're in to smell great? (Plus, when they're done, the glass jars are great for organizing.) All of which is to say you might find our latest love affair a bit out of character (it's pink, for starters): we are l-o-v-i-n-g the limited-edition Diptyque Rose Duet candle. The fragrance is a blend of the label’s two iconic scents, Roses and Baies, and the pink-glass votive leaves our office smelling elegant and fresh... More 'walking through a garden in the summer' than 'walking into your grandmother’s scarf drawer.' Plus, when it's winter and there are no roses to be found, isn't it nice to close your eyes and pretend?
