Frenchify Your Friday – Number Four

French candles

Friday night is definitely my favourite night of the week. Work’s done and two days of relaxation stretch out in front of me. I can’t even begin to describe how good Friday night feels – but I seriously wish I could bottle it!

And an easy way to bring even more pleasure to an already great night is to take a tip from the French and light a scented candle or two.

The French have turned scented candle making into an art form and there are so many beautiful French candles available. My all time favourite is Diptyque’s Opoponax but I also adore many other brands. I’m currently in love with candles made by Durance.

If French candles are hard to come by where you are – sometimes the French brands are in relatively limited supply in Australia – try the Glasshouse range. Not French, but affordable, beautiful and easy to find.

Frenchify Your Friday this week simply by lighting a gorgeous candle!

Wishing you all a fabulous Friday!

And until next time – au revoir.
