When you're trying to make a house (or a studio, or one-half of a dorm room) feel like a home, nothing does the trick as fast as a lush scented candle. And Diptyque candles might as well be every girl's dream, with their intoxicating aromas and sultry, minimalist design — but, unfortunately, they're not cheap. So, since we can’t resist a great DIY (and an even greater way to save some cash), we're loving A Pair & A Spare's super-accessible guide to making your own version of the fragrant French goodies.
Don't get caught up in the notion that homemade candle-making is just for the extra-crafty (or the extra-hippie) — these are seriously cool, and once you get the hang of the process, you've got a go-to gift at your fingertips. Now, which scent will you tackle first? (A Pair & A Spare)
