I’m a hoarder when it comes to certain things — handbags, ankle boots, rose gold everything — but nothing more than scented candles. I have a whole closet shelf dedicated to them. It’s like a world tour in fragrance — Japanese cherry blossom, Egyptian oud, Italian neroni — and I love them all. I really do…
But here’s the problem with candles: They only work when I’m around. I can’t very well leave one burning as I head to work so its Bulgarian rose scent will greet me when I return 10 hours later. I mean, I’m too by-the-books to even leave a flame going when I top up my teacup in the next room.
And that’s precisely why a whole new crop of flame-free home fragrances has won over my heart. Each is as gorgeous to look at as it is to smell — like a diffuser that swaps standard sticks for orchid blossom branches, and one that looks like some luxe objet you might discover if you traveled to the future.
