Diptyque scented candle

Helsinki, 17 degrees


Perfumes are the feelings of flowers.

For somebody like me that feels the best when she sees happiness and amazement in the eyes of someone else, last week was truly unforgettable. I had the pleasure of hosting 11 international fashion bloggers in Helsinki, and I'll write more about our experiences in upcoming blog posts but for now I just want to mention how the people I met touched me. Touched my soul. It's rare to find genuine people and great personalities with who one can laugh and have a good time. I think they said it the best on Sunday when they said that they didn't want to leave Helsinki. We had such a great time together that everyone felt peaceful! Another peaceful place is our home, and now for fall we have a new addition to our living room, a lovely scented candle by Diptyque that one of my dear colleagues brought to me from Paris. Now for fall the scent of freesia will fill our home!

Koska olen onnellisin kun näen iloa toisten ihmisten silmissä, viime viikko oli minulle unohtumaton elämys. Pääsin emännöimään 11 kansainvälistä bloggaria Helsingissä. Tulen kirjoittamaan elämyksistämme enemmänkin tulevissa blogikirjoituksissa mutta halusin nyt tänään jakaa kanssanne tunteen, jonka koin yhdessä bloggareiden kanssa. Uudet tuttavuudet pääsivät koskettelemaan sieluani ja olivat todellisia inspiraation lähteitä! On harvinaista tavata uusia ihmisiä, joiden kanssa heti tulee toimeen ja jonka kanssa voi vapaasti olla koska on niin levollinen olo. Tuli kyllä naurettua paljon! Toinen paikka, jossa viihdyn ja minulla on aina levollinen olo - on tietysti kotonamme. Tänä syksynä kodimme tuoksuu freesialta koska kollegani toi minulle mieluisan tuliaisen: Diptyquen tuoksukynttilä!


What do you think about scented candles? What kind of home scents do you like?

Mitä mieltä olette tuoksukynttilöistä? Mistä kotituoksuista pidätte?

  1. My mom likes them a lot, but I never can smell the candles that much. I don't know if it's my sense of smell or not.

  2. A gathering of international fashion bloggers in Helsinki sounds absolutely wonderful! I can't wait to hear more about it - I'd love to visit Helsinki one day myself :) And as for Diptyque, I have one of their candles next to me on my desk as I type this. Definitely the best souvenir from Paris that a girl could want.
