Burn Notice: Christian Dior Bois D’Argent Candle


Inside this beautifully wrapped package from Dior is my newest candle love- Bois D’Argent (6.80z/ $65):  Smoked Yémen wood incense oils, Tuscan iris extracts, essential Somalian myrrh oils, Indonesian patchouli oils and Alicante honey.

It’s described as having a powdery and slightly woody scent and I agree with that. I would also say that if your ideal lover is someone who would be able to safely start a fire and then bring you some pretty native flowers to put in your hair if you guys were stranded on an island or in the woods this scent is for you.

I am a sucker for good packaging so the sleek black glass with the white label and black block print appeal to my shallow side.

 I’ve been using this one regularly(1-2 hrs/night) for the past two months and I’m impressed. It has a nice throw cold and even more so when lit. It also has been burning perfectly even with no tunneling which I love.

Dior has three other candles that I’d like to try out, 30 Montaigne, Eau Noire and Ambre Nuit. You can check them out here.  

What are you burning lately?

    Sounds like heaven :) … currently I'm burning a cheapo candle from the poundstore – it doesn't even have much smell lol but I'll use it up anyway. I never knew Dior did candles?! That packaging is the definition of luxury – totally chic! Thanks for posting, definitely something to consider .. I've smelt Diptyque (a luxury candle company) candles up close but honestly could not understand what all the fuss was about (maybe its because they were not burning) perhaps Dior are better. Oh dear – if my ideal lover could make a fire and do all that jazz like you said I think I'd collapse from blissful shock .. thanks for sharing :)!

    Hi Mango and Fudge. Have I told you I think you have one of the best blog names ever? I didn't know Dior did candles either? I like Diptyque candles- Noisetier and Voilette are my faves. I also like Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia. Let me know if you try any of those.
