I'm one of those individuals who always thinks if you spend more, you get a better product. I know this is both classist and complete balderdash, but, like my affinity for "Celebrity Rehab" and Little Debbie Zebra Cakes, it's something that I can't change. Anyway, Diptyque, one of my favorites, is always a bit more expensive than the standard candle. But compared to other scented candles, they are absolutely heavenly.
But wait, they also make fragrances?!? To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Diptyque scent, the company is releasing three unisex scents: L'Eau de L'Eau, L'Eau des Hesperides and L'Eau de Neroli. All three were developed by perfumer Olivier Pescheux. They're fresh, crisp, and great for summer. Natch, they're not cheap. They sell for $150 each at the Diptyque store on Newbury Street.
