Double Duty

It's no secret that I adore Diptyque candles but, honestly, I do not discriminate Cire Trudor, Le Labo, Byredo are also a few of my favorites.  Yes these brands are expensive but their scents are heavenly and their packaging is divine.  When they are finished burning I clean them out and use them for pencils or as simple bud vases.  It seems I'm not the only one who thinks it's a shame to get rid of my empty containers...pictured above are my favorite ideas that I came across for upcycling candle jars.  The steep price tag on some of my favorite brands seems a little less jarring (hehe) when you factor in the double duty jar, right? I think this gives me all the more reason to go out and buy the Diptyque Baies colored candle I've been lusting after! Done.

  1. Love how these candles look, but do they burn well? I never seem to see them actually lit!

  2. what a great post! I always see these images all over the place and I loved how you made a post of the "double duty" feature of these luxury candles :) Pretty pretty eye candy too!

  3. UGH Totally makes up for the fact that these candles are so pricey. I have a Diptyque one in our bathroom that I use for makeup brushes. xoxo
