Number 10 of our top 10 gifts from Paris: Candles (Durance, Diptyque, Ladurée)
In France we are making our own candles. Of course you can also find Yankee Candles, but maybe you can bring a macaron scented macaron candle from Ladurée? Or one from Durance or Diptyque, both produced and designed in France. The cheapest is Durance and you can find in their shop, candles smelling like Provence. I’ve recently bought tomatoes smelling candle, I wasn’t disappointed! I feel like I’m dancing in a great pool of gazpacho every time I light it!
