Fragrance is an essential and influential part of my life. Perfume, candles and natural scents, found within various locations effect my mood and thought process. Whether I’m feeling fresh, inspired and feminine from my favorite perfume, or recalling a happy memory at the smell of honeysuckle, fragrance plays a huge and understated role in my life!
Over the past couple of years, I have fallen in love with a few candles, particularly Diptyque candles! I have always lusted over Diptyque candles and after finally taking the plunge, and purchasing my own, my candle game was changed forever! I am a huge fan in investing in quality and purchasing a Diptyque candle is doing just that. Their candles are long lasting and burn for many, many hours. The are so fragrant that they can fill a room with their scent before even burning the candle! I love to let mine sit for a while before lighting it. I could go on and on about why, these are my favorite candles, but for today I wanted to share with you another reason why they are my favorite! I love using my old candle jars to store little odds and ends in and Diptyque candle jars make for the chicest storage!
In addition to their style and scent, another reason why Diptyque candles are one of my favorites, is because unlike most other candles they actually burn completely out. Some other candles have a huge amount of wax left in the jar, when they are finished burning. Diptyque’s do not, which makes cleaning them out even easier! I have read online so many ways that people get the little bit excess wax out of the bottom on the jar, but I have found that its easiest to just run hot water in the jar for a a minute or so, and then let the hot water sit in the glass jar for about 20 minutes. Then I just pour the water out and wipe the excess wax out with a paper towel. Once all of the wax is out, I like to wash the jar with dish soap and rinse well.
When it comes to reusing your candle jars, the sky is the limit! There are so many different ways to use them and seeing all of my Diptyque jars, on my vanity, just makes me smile. I love using them for lipstick, pens and pencils, adding them to the top of a book stack and more! If you love reusing your candle jars, here are a few fun items to fill them with and organize in them:
Lipstick, Lipgloss & Other Makeup Items
Pencils & Pencils
and thats just a few things.. there are so many more!
I just love displaying all of my favorite things in these beautiful jars. Most importantly, I love that the life of my candle is not over when all of the wax is burnt out. There are so many reasons why I love Diptyque candles and products, however, this philosophy applies to all candle jars and other jars, for that matter! I have linked products shown in this post below, so that you can shop them! I have also listed my favorite Diptyque candles as well.
