Carrie Bradshaw's Apartment Is Full of the Candles Every Beauty Editor Hoards

Carrie Bradshaw's iconic column may have been focused on dating, but based on her taste in candles, I'm pretty sure she could have been a beauty editor. While passively catching up on And Just Like That last week (as a longtime Sex and the City fan, I can't help but stay in the loop), I spotted a familiar sight—and something I have in my own bathroom: a cleaned-out Diptyque candle vessel being used as a toothbrush holder. 

After a quick scan of the rest of her apartment, it seems she has a few Diptyque candles lying around. The Parisian Maison has long been a favorite of beauty editors and fashion people—you'd have a tough time walking into the home of any beauty editor or fashion person and not finding at least one Diptyque candle either being burned or being used as a container post-burn like Bradshaw. 

Diptyque candles all smell incredible—each scent feels like it was made specifically with chic living rooms in mind. They burn for 60+ hours and are made with high-quality wax that burns cleanly. Keep reading for a few of our favorite Diptyque candles that will help you begin to channel Carrie Bradshaw's decor vibe.
