|My Baies candle on it's last burn.|
Mhhh, Baies. If you've heard of Diptyque, you've heard of their candles, and if you've heard of their candles, you've heard of Baies. Baies is literally an explosion of realistic rose and strong juicy black currant, it definitely smells like a rose garden! So ridiculously good, and this is coming from someone who is not a fan of roses.
Baies vs. L'Ombre dans l'Eau EdT.
Diptyque has gorgeous fragrances, and some of the fragrances have companion candles. Baies is the companion candle to L'Ombre dans l'Eau. These scents are almost identical, which I was enormously pleased about. On my skin L'Ombre dans l'Eau starts out with the exact same scent I get from the candle, the rose and juicy black currant garden. Gradually, the black currant (the fruity top note) mellows and takes a backseat to the rose, and it is like wearing a portable rose garden. Baies has the black currant stick throughout, which is very nice!
A word of warning, L'Ombre dans l'Eau edt is the strongest edt Diptyque has in regards to strength. This smells like a full strength, strong EdP. I literally need one tiny bit on my wrists and it lasts ages and is strong enough to waft the fragrance around me from that one spot. It's not for the faint of heart. Utterly gorgeous and packs a punch!
