Gardenia Candle by Diptyque

About 7ish years ago a dear friend gave me this candle for my birthday. I was later appalled to find out that the candle was around $50! Who pays that much for a candle? I was afraid to even burn it at that point. Once I did, the love affair between me and this candle began. I would burn this candle in my house when I would have company over and I would be able to smell it clear to the other side of the house. No candle I have ever encountered burns this long and smells this good in such a wide radius! Pretty soon I was giving this candle as a gift and creating more gardenia addicts. We all agreed to not let anyone in on how much it costs for fear they would find us crazy. This candle is worth every penny and distinctly Southern.
