Fireplace Dreams Fulfilled: Diptyque’s Feu de Bois Candle

Check out The Beauty Bug’s makeshift fireplace…


As cliche as the phrase may be, a picture is worth a thousand words and the above is about as close as the Beauty Bug can get to describing Diptyque’s Feu de Bois Candle.

Diptyque candles are the La Mer of the candle world and Feu de Bois is just exquisite. The brand boasts an ethereal, unexplainable, simple elegance with its hallmark black and white packaging and a certain French “je n’e se quois”.  Handmade in France, Feu de Bois transforms The Beauty Bug’s living room into a warm, cozy log cabin  -  it’s calming, soothing and festive. French for fire wood (The Beauty Bug will add that to Her list of French phrases along with “Do you accept credit cards?”), the earthy, woodsy candle is smoky, provocative, and sophisticated. It’s a blend of rare essential oils that’s reminiscent of fir trees, firewood and autumn woodlands. 

For a male perspective we turn to The Beauty Bug husband. He says, “I would buy this candle. That says a lot.”

At $60, the larger size is a bit of an indulgence, but well worth and has a burning time of 60 hours.

And while we’re on the subject, here’s The Beauty Bug and Her husband in Paris on their honeymoon. Ahhh Paris, the bread, the cheese, the romance, the sites, the crepes, the scents….


Je t’aime Paris!

The Diptyque Feu de Bois candle is available on  for $60.
