Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain Collection

September 12, 2022

Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain Collection

As the ultimate Diptyque lover I could not resist picking up some of the new pieces from the Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain Collection. This fall they’ve expanded their iconic scent 34 in a collection of new candle sizes and diffusers. The candles are cased in a beautiful off-white color. They’ve repackaged the room spray in a clear glass spritzer bottle to match the other scents.

The 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain scent is a green spicy floral. It’s a unique distinct scent with a mix of fresh green notes, moss, florals with a little bit of warm sharp spices swirled in. I’ve found it to be one of the strongest Diptyque scents I’ve tried with the most potent throw. It has a unique feel to it and if there’s one scent that sums up Diptyque I would say it’s definitely this one.

Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain Collection

At this time they’ve seem to have discontinued this in the original 220 g form (rounded rectangular porcelain format) as it’s nowhere to be found online now.

I purchased 3 of the items from the collection including the 300g Candle ($115), 600g 3-wick Porcelain Candle ($220) and the Room Spray ($78). This scent is also available in the Hourglass Diffuser, Car Diffuser, Electric Wall Diffuser, Home Fragrance Diffuser and Scented Oval and Outdoor Candle Size.

Room Spray

Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain Room Spray

I love room sprays as a nice home refresher. I’ve tried quite a few brands and the ones from Diptyque are very good. They have very good throw and strength. They linger for quite some time but of course will not last as long as a candle or diffuser. In our home we use Baies and Figuier the most. The 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain Room Spray is one we used to own in the original white packaging and it was one of Andrew’s favorites.

34 Boulevard Saint-Germain 300G Candle

Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain 300G Candle

The 300 gram candles are larger than the standard ones which are 190 grams. The 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain variation comes in an off-white frosted glass jar. I think it’s a stunning one! This is the same size as their Color Scented Candles that come in the black, green, moss, amber and red jars. Since they are larger they do have a stronger throw than the standard ones. I’ve splurged on several before, I really love Amber during the fall-winter season for a nice alternative to pine or pumpkin scents. This one has about 75 hours of burn time.

I also splurged on the 34 Boulevard Saint-Germain 3-wick Candle ($220) which has 90 hours of burn time. This is made of porcelain with 3 wicks and has even stronger throw! Andrew and I have owned this size in the Baies, Feu de Bois and Roses. These are quite the splurge but the larger ones with multiple wicks really do have better throw.

Diptyque 34 Collection

I thought I’d add a few other thoughts on the other formats in this collection:

Diptyque Oval, Diffusers, Etc.

The Scented Ovals are beautiful and have decent throw straight out of the box. However they fade as time goes by and to me they just aren’t worth the splurge. They do make for a beautiful decorative piece but the scent’s lasting power is pretty much existent after a month.

The Home Fragrance Reed Diffuser has very strong continuous throw. The glass base is very thick and sturdy and it’s beautiful! The pros are that it lasts long, has good throw and makes for a beautiful accent piece. Cons are the basically the nature of reed diffusers. They’re continuous so you can’t really turn off the scent. Also the reeds catch dust particles and since they soak up the oil/scent any debris in the air sticks to it. However this is the case with any reed diffuser. All you need to do is wipe them down occasionally.

The Hourglass Diffuser is one of my favorite purchases from the brand. I first bought this as a gift to a friend one year. She loved it so much I decided to them buy one for our home. I prefer the hourglass diffuser to the reed version. You activate the diffuser by turning it over. When the fragrance flows from one side to the other and scent is dispersed into the air over an hour.

I tried the Car Diffuser when it first launched in 2018 and I was completely disappointed. It didn’t last long, didn’t grip well and it was extremely expensive. I’m not sure if they’ve changed the design at all since then but I did not have luck with these (even though they look beautiful!).

Diptyque 34 Collection

That wraps up my recent Diptyque haul! While these are quite the splurge they were 100% worth it for me as I love the scent! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been to Paris but I still have fond memories. If you’ve been following a long time you might remember this photo from Paris 2015.

Diptyque Do Son Collection for Spring 2022

March 24, 2022

Diptyque Do Son Collection Spring 2022

Diptyque just launched their limited-edition Do Son Collection featuring their Do Son scent in beautiful special turquoise packaging. The Do Son Eau de Toilette is one of my favorite scents from the line with a beautiful mix of Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Marine Accord. I own it in multiple formats like the perfume, hand cream, and hair mist!

This spring’s limited-edition collection has Do Son in multiple variations, size options and sets. The packaging is stunning in the most beautiful shade of turquoise blue!

Diptyque Do Son Eau de Toilette and Hand Cream Set

on the nails, Chanel Le Vernis Onirique 923

The Do Son Eau de Toilette and Hand Cream come in a Boxed Set ($120) with a travel sized perfume and full size hand cream. Both are also available for purchase individually ($45 for the hand cream, $75 for the 30 ml Eau de Toilette). I love the smaller sizes which makes them perfect for travel or the purse!

Eau de Toilette

Diptyque Do Son Eau de Toilette

The Do Son Eau de Toilette ($150) is available in the 100 ml size which has a nice lovely lightweight floral + marine accord mix. It’s not too strong on the tuberose which I actually love. To me it’s a unique floral that isn’t too flowery. Lasting power is medium on me.

Eau de Parfum

Diptyque Do Son Eau de Parfum

I tried the Do Son Eau de Parfum ($190, for 75 ml) for the first time a few weeks ago in the Diptyque store in Miami. I almost always prefer the EDT format for scents when both the EDT and EDP formulas are available. I was pleasantly surprised by the Eau de Parfum! It’s stronger on the tuberose notes. It has a mix of Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Amber Wood. It’s richer in feel with stronger floral notes. It’s hard to pick a favorite but now that I’ve tried the parfum, I think I like it more!

Tubereuse Candle

Diptyque Tubereuse Candle

Diptyque’s version of the candle is Tubereuse ($78). I love this one for a lovely fresh and green kind of floral. The turquoise glass jar is so beautiful, it brings life to my home office with the color!

Coffee Table Book

Diptyque Do Son Coffee Table Book

Diptyque has launched another book! The Do Son Coffee Table Book ($120) is a large sized book with photographs and illustrations inspired by the Do Son universe. As the ultimate Diptyque collector I bought it the minute it launched online (along with a couple other things). A week later I received a package from the Diptyque team with the full collection so now I have one for my office and one for our coffee table!

Diptyque Black Friday Baies 2021 + Favorite Candle Accessories

November 26, 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021 + Diffuser Review

The Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle is back! This year’s 2021 Limited-Edition Baies retails for $74. You can find it in Diptyque stores and online at Diptyque. This year’s candle has a beautiful design with lines of gold, black and white. It’s available for 4 days only while supplies last.

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

Diptyque Black Friday Baies Candle 2021

I love the little details including the black colored wax and the 2021 print on the back.

The Standard Baies Candle is one of my favorites with a rich mix of blackcurrant and rose. I have lost count of how many of these I’ve bought over the years in multiple sizes and scent forms. I’m particularly smitten with the Baies Room Spray ($68) as it’s quite strong and lasts a decent amount of time for a spray.

Hourglass Diffuser

Diptyque Hourglass Diffuser

Book / Vase / Speakers / Room Spray / Mini Candle

The Baies Hourglass Diffuser ($190 has been on my wishlist for years. I bought this as a gift last year for my bestie’s birthday as she loves all the decorative pieces from Diptyque. She said she loved it! I finally decided to buy one for myself and I love it too. Reviews are mixed but I think it has just the right amount of throw. Scent is diffused when you turn it around for the liquid to fill the room. The diffusion cycle lasts about an hour making it easier to control when you want the scent on.

Reed Diffuser

Diptyque Reed Diffuser

3-Wick Black Candle / Acrylic Case with Gardenia / Aesop Book / Tom Ford Book

This holiday Diptyque launched a Reed Diffuser ($190) which comes in a boxed set including a glass diffuser jar, refill bottle, funnel and six rattan reeds. The Diptyque team kindly gifted one and I think it’s a beautiful home accent piece. The throw is very potent and with this one there is a continuous scent that fills the room. Refills are also available for $95.

Some of you asked me which one I prefer and I would say it’s a tough pick. They’re both different and unique in their own way! A few of my readers messaged me saying they have both and prefer the Hourglass version as you can control the scent diffusion time when you turn it and it’s not too overpowering. I think they summed it up perfectly. I prefer the Hourglass too although if you want something more continuous and want to splurge opt for the Reed Diffuser.

Diptyque Photophore

Diptyque Photophores Coast

Marble + Brass Tray / USB Lighter / Vase

I thought I’d highlight a few more of my favorite candle accessories!

One of my favorite things Andrew has gifted me is a Diptyque Photophore. He bought one for me while on a trip and I’ve had it for over a decade! I’ve since added a few more to my collection and love the Coast Photophore in the Large ($106) and Small size ($85). They are made of thick torch-blown glass and I find them very sturdy. A black stand is also included.

Candle Accessories

Diptyque Wick Trimmer and USB Lighter

A Wick Trimmer is essential and I love that more candle companies are making these. The Diptyque Wick Trimmer ($40) is one I’ve owned for many years and it has held up really well. I also bought a few USB Lighters and as one who doesn’t really like matches I find this perfect. There’s less smokey, less mess and it’s easier to use. Also think this one is interesting too!

Match Cloche

Skeem Design Match Cloche

Vase / Tray / USB Lighter

Many of you may remember this Skeem Design Match Cloche from last year. The glass is on the thin side so I find it delicate but it has held up well and I haven’t had any issues with it breaking. I think it makes for a beautiful accent piece or gift! You can find it in a variety of colors, sizes and finishes.

Best Cozy Candles for Fall

October 8, 2021

Best Candles For Fall Diptyque, Jo Malone, Byredo

I love this time of year when we can bring out all kinds of cozy things for fall the season. It’s still quite warm here in Florida but the weather has noticeably started to shift. I’ve started to change our home scents to put us more in the mood for fall. Today I’ve put together a roundup of my favorite cozy fall candles from Nordstrom. I’ve included a few alternatives for diffusers and room sprays as well.

Diptyque Loves

Best Diptyque Baies Candles

Out of all the home fragrance brands I would say that Diptyque is my favorite. I still remember the first ones I splurged on and to this day my favorite is still Baies. It’s a classic blackcurrant and rose mix that is truly unique. I own this in multiple formats and sizes. The Standard Size 6.5 oz/190 g candle is a classic and has approximately 60 hours of burn time. For a splurge the 3-Wick 600 g comes in a black ceramic vessel and has 90 hours of burn time. The larger size has significantly stronger throw.

If you’re looking for a good gift set to treat yourself or gift as a hostess gift Best of Baies is a great one with a mini candle, mini room spray and scented oval.

Diptyque Best of Baies Set Nordstrom

Other scents I adore include Ambre which is a warm and creamy woody amber with vetiver, patchouli, aniseed, spices, incense, cistus and tonka bean. Santal is another favorite woody scent wand is probably my favorite sandalwood variation with a mix of velvety spices. Vanille is one of the best smoky vanillas I’ve tried.

Best Diptyque Candles for Fall Ambre, Vanille and Santal

The Diptyque room sprays are among the best ones I’ve tried. While they’re not as long lasting as a candle, I find they last longer in our home compared to other brands. I’ve splurged on a quite a few but the ones I like the most are Figuier and Baies.

Favorite Diptyque Room Sprays

Byredo

Best Byredo Scents Tree House, Burning Rose, Cotton Poplin

I also have so much love for Byredo. Their candles are really spendy but they have incredibly strong throw. Even their mini ones are quite potent. The ones I keep going back to are Tree House and Woods for fall. Both have a really unique woody vibe. Tree House is a complex scent with cedar, bamboo, sandalwood, guaiac wood and hay and spice, myrrh and labdanum. The first time I visited a Byredo store this was the scent they were burning inside and it was incredible. I splurged on the Room Spray and was really impressed.

Another favorite is Cotton Poplin which I think is more of a timeless home fragrance. It’s one of the most comforting fresh scents with a mix of chamomile, cedar and musk.

There are so many great options in candles. I also really like Burning Rose and Bibliotheque – both unique, smoky with a lot of depth. If you like the Bal D’Afrique Perfume you will really love Bibliotheque.

Le Labo

Le Labo Santal Candle and Discovery Set

Le Labo is another great line I think is universally loved. The Santal 26 Candle is one of their classics. It’s a creamy warm mix of amber, cocoa, vanilla, cedar, musk and sandalwood. It’s quite potent and fills the entire home within minutes.

They have a few mini candle discovery sets which I love. I own the Candle Discovery Set Trio with Figue 15, Palo Santo 14 and Petit Grain 21 (Nordstrom Exclusive) and think it makes for a great gift. They just added a new Candle Discovery Set with Calone 17, Laurier 62 and Verveine 32. I’m super curious about these and have them on my list to smell next time I’m in store.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Scented Candle

One of the most luxurious things I’ve been gifted was the Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Scented Candle. My bestie bought this for me last Christmas and I save it for special occasions. It smells just like the Eau de Parfum – mix of rich amber, floral notes, jasmine, saffron, cedarwood and ambergris. It has such an incredible throw.

Jo Malone

Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Diffuser

Last but not least is Jo Malone. They have so many timeless classics and I love their holiday editions. The one I love the most is the Lime Basil and Mandarin which is clean, unisex, unique, sharp. I tried the Lime Basil & Mandarin Scent Surround Diffuser and love it.

Best Candles for Fall from Diptyque, Byredo, Jo Malone

I know this is a long list but since I work from home I find them worth the splurge. We always have something burning in the home for any kind of mood. I love that Andrew also loves a good smelling home.

Out of all the scents that I’ve purchased and repurchased, I would say my Top 5 for fall:

  1. Diptyque Baies
  2. Diptyque Santal
  3. Diptyque Ambre
  4. Diptyque Vanille
  5. Byredo Tree House

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Picks

September 13, 2021

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Review

Diptyque launched a 5-piece collection to celebrate their 60th Anniversary with their Le Grand Tour Collection. Each item is inspired by a different destination. As the ultimate Diptyque lover I ordered 4 of the 5 items immediately and have been completely obsessed. I love the special editions from Diptyque. If you’re in New York they have a Pop Up for the collection from September 10 through October 10th. I ordered all the items except for one of the perfumes. If you have smelled it let me know what you thought!

The design of each item has special meaning to the city the product is named after. I found it really interesting to read more about it on their Virtual Walkthrough page.

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Review

Diptyque Le Grand Tour Collection Review

Paris Candle

Diptyque Paris Candle Le Grand Tour | The Beauty Lookbook

The Paris Le Grand Tour Candle ($105) is the standard 190 g size and comes with a sculpted wood lid. This has a beautiful earthy woody soft feel perfect for fall, but I really think it’s good for year round. Throw is on the softer side but still noticeable in our home. I do think other scents have a stronger more potent throw, but this one is still very good. It also comes with a lid which is different from their Standard Black Lacquered Candle Lid ($28).

Notes include: Myrrh, wood patina accord, Paris stone accord

If you’re a Diptyque fan you probably already own the Paris City Candle (part of their City Candle Collection). The notes in the Paris Le Grand Tour Candle are different from the Paris City Candle. The latest Le Grand Tour is more earthy and woody while the City version is a brighter but mellow floral. I love both even though they’re very different.

Venise Eau de Toilette Trio

Diptyque Venise Trio Le Grand Tour Collection

Perfume can be so hit or miss so I ordered the one I knew I would like. I love vetiver so I ordered the Venise Travel Trio ($95) and absolutely love it. This has a similar but greener vibe compared to the Le Labo Edition Hotel scents (which have black tea, green tea and tobacco leaves). The Diptyque Venise perfume is a lovely green vetiver kind of perfume with good lasting power. I wish this were permanent! I may buy a backup of this since I know the travel sizes will be used up in no time for me.

Notes: basil, green bell pepper, vetiver

Milies Scented Oval

Diptyque Milies Scented Oval

I’ve owned a few of the scented ovals from Diptyque and the lasting power isn’t the best but I still think they’re beautiful. Milies Scented Oval ($70) has a really potent fig scent that reminds me of their Figuier Candle scent, but a little sweeter. I think the design and accent beads are beautiful. In my experience the scent fades after a few months – they still make nice accent pieces though!

Notes: Immortelle absolute, ambroxan, fig wood accord

Byblos Candle

Diptyque Byblos Candle

The Byblos Candle ($165) comes in a beautiful marbled clay vessel inspired by wisps of coffee smoke. It’s a nice fresh and spicy kind of scent with incredible throw. This comes in the 300 g size which is same size as the Glass Colored Candles.

Notes: coffee, atlas cedar, white musk

I’m still debating whether or not to order the Kyoto Perfume – the notes sound really beautiful but I am unsure of buying it without smelling it first. Now that it’s sold out at Diptyque and Nordstrom I kinda want it now! (Still available at Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and Net-A-Porter.)

I’m really happy with all the items I purchased and have no regrets buying sight unseen. I ordered mine online from Diptyque but the collection is also available at other retailers like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s and all other Diptyque retailers. If you’re ordering online at Diptyque make sure you check their Exclusive Special Offers page for gift with purchase options!

Best Holiday Candles + Scents For the Home This Season

December 14, 2020

Best Luxury Christmas Candles Byredo, Diptyque, Cire Trudon | The Beauty Lookbook

I’m wrapping up my holiday gift guides with a few more roundups! Today I’m sharing my favorite luxury candles for the holidays. If you’re looking to splurge on something nice for the home or as a gift here are my favorites.

Best Holiday Candles Diptyque, Byredo, Maison Francis Kurkdjian | The Beauty Lookbook

DIPTYQUE

Diptyque Best of Baies Set | The Beauty Look book

Baies is my favorite of all the Diptyque scents, it’s great for holiday because it’s a unique mix of roses and blackcurrant. It’s a green and berry mix which I think is interesting and perfect year round. I’ve bought this in multiple sizes and adore the Baies Room Spray. Available in multiple sizes. In case you are not a fan of blackcurrant or rose, I’ve included a few others.

Best Diptyque Candles for Christmas Amber, Santal, Vanille, Feu de Bois

Vanille is a unique vanilla in the sense that it’s a smoky leathery one with a hint of spice. It’s not sweet like other vanilla candles.

Ambre is one of the prettiest holiday scents to me. It’s a warm mix of amber and musk giving it a cozy feel.

Feu de Bois is the best firewood scent in candle form. It has a smoky earthy kind of wood smell.

Santal is one of the softest sandalwood scents I’ve tried. Sometimes sandalwood can be a bit strong in other candles, this has good throw but has a well-rounded feel. It has a bit of a velvety feel to it.

A few other fun things to check out:

BYREDO

Byredo Tree House Room Spray Mini Bibliothque Candle | The Beauty Lookbook

Tree House is one of my favorite woodsy kind of candles, this year I opted to buy the Tree House Room Spray and am so impressed. It has the longest lasting power of all the room sprays I’ve tried. It smells just like the candle and is quite potent. It has a mix of pimento, bamboo, cedarwood, guaiac wood, sandalwood and leather. The Room Spray comes at quite a steep price but it is cased in a large glass spray bottle and I feel it will last a long time.

Bibliotheque is one of my favorites for the holiday, it has a really unique mix, almost like a more intense less sweet version of their Bal D’Afrique perfume. Bibliotheque notes are peach, plum, peony, violet, leather patchouli and vanilla. It is available in the standard 8.5 oz size and also in the mini 2.5 oz (shown here). Minis are harder to find sometimes as they sell out, but you can find them at Byredo, Violet Grey, Lucky Scent, Space NK.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Candle

The Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 Candle was a gift from my bestie and it is AMAZING! I just bought the perfume and fell in love with it. The candle smells exactly like the perfume – woody, amber, floral and sweet with extremely good throw. It is quite a splurge but I would not hesitate to buy on my own. She bought it from Saks.

CIRE TRUDON

Cire Trudon Ernesto Candles | The Beauty Lookbook

There are so many things I want to try from Cire Trudon but I keep going back to my one favorite, Ernesto. Cire Trudon makes the best of the best in terms of how elegant and unique their candles are. They have the strongest throw out of the ones I have tried. I fell in love with Ernesto thanks to one of my readers who kept nudging me to try (she even offered to buy me one if I didn’t order one lol!). I eventually splurged and have never looked back. This year they launched Ernesto in a beautiful Alabaster vessel with a lid. It’s truly glorious. I ordered it over Cyber Week for some savings. It is like a beautiful work of art.

For Christmas, I have also tried Gabriel, Nazareth and Fir – all are truly lovely for the holiday season.

10 Things I’m Loving for the Home

June 18, 2020

Home Bookcase Shelf West Elm Diptyque Photophore

So many of you liked the my last home decor post I decided to do another one! I’m rounding up 10 things I’m loving for the home including a few favorite home accents, my favorite hand washes and a few countertop organizers to help keep things more tidy.

We’ve been loving nice hydrating hand washes for the home as we’ve been washing our hands more frequently! Molton Brown sent over a cute care package with their Delicious Rhubarb and Roses Liquid Hand Wash (1) and Hand Lotion (2) and I love how fresh and floral it smells! You can also find these in a Duo Set (nice for gifting) and also Travel Sized Minis (love that these come with pumps too).

Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb Hand Wash and Lotion

Another long-time favorite is the Aesop Resurrection Hand Wash (3) for a nice cleansing gel that won’t strip the skin. It’s invigorating and is easy to rinse. We love the rinse-free version too, but my favorite is the one you can wash off.

Aesop Resurrection Hand Wash

For the bathroom I’ve been trying to find some countertop solutions for my hair dryer/brush. I decided to try the Haircare Holder (4) from West Elm which is made by Yamazaki Home. It’s small and compact so it won’t take up a lot of counter space. It’s made with a powder-coated steel. (Also available in black). It works for the hair dryers I alternate between which include the Dyson Supersonic (reviewed here) and the Harry Josh Ultra Light (review here). The stand itself fairly small and compact so if you own a larger hair dryer it probably won’t work for your needs. So far it’s held up really nicely over the past few months since I bought it.

Yamazaki White Hair Care Holder

Also below shown with the Harry Josh Ultralight dryer in the larger opening. You can also put curling irons or flat irons inside. There is an attachment that comes with this for you to hang on the cabinet door/under the sink if you want to store it a different way.

Yamazaki White Hair Care Holder

I’ve also been loving these Wood Handled Bathroom Caddies (5 and 6). You may have seen these several times on the blog or on my Instagram as I use them to store sheet masks. I ordered these from West Elm in the Small (base is 5″ wide, 3.25″ tall, 5″ deep) and the Large (base is 10.25″ wide, 3.25″ tall, 5″ deep). These are the same material and brand as the Hair Dryer holder – made a powder coated steel. They are on the small side so they won’t hold larger items but to keep smaller things in place they’re perfect!

Wood Handle Bath Caddy West Elm

Below the small vs large:

Wood Handle Bath Caddy Small vs Large

As a huge Diptyque fan I’m obsessed with their Photophores in all the sizes! I have both small and large sizes (7 and 8). The ones I own have an opening at the top so you can burn the candle inside it. However sometimes the flames get too high/strong so I mainly use the glass ones for decorative purposes these days. The Large Glass twist version is an older style which you might still be able to find in boutiques, but for now they the Full Twist with a black stripe. The Coast Glass is still available in the small and large options. They come out with sets and new variations during the holiday season so if you don’t see one you 100% love, I would recommend waiting until later in the year for the limited-edition launches.

Below small coast vs. full sized twist:

Diptyque Photophore Glass

I’ve been looking for some candle covers to keep some opened ones dust-free. I ordered a few Glass Cloches (9) from Crate and Barrel which is on the small side. It will fit a standard size Diptyque candle inside but for anything larger it’s a snug fit. Target has a similar style that’s slightly larger but I have not seen/tried it. I do like the look and feel of the ones I ordered though!

Crate and Barrel Glass Cloche Candle Cover

Last but not least are the Mini Countertop Trash Cans (10) from simplehuman. These are small at 1.5 liters but perfect for things like counter tops, small spaces or even an at-home coffee bar area for sugar packets/stirrers etc. I ordered mine from simplehuman online but you can find these at a number of places like Target, Amazon, etc.

What are you loving for the home these days? Any organization favorites or boxes you love? I would love to hear how you store your hair appliances whether it’s in the drawer, on counter or some other storage solution! I’m always looking for ideas and inspiration.
