My favorite scented candles - diptyque

My first diptyque scented candle was given from one of my client "Elaine" after I've done her wedding makeup. Knowing that I've my dog staying together in my room, somehow there's a bit of doggy smell forever. But after I've used this wonderful scented candle, the smell are gone & even my dog smell so good now! :)
Recently bought two more from Essentials Boutique at Paragon. Gardenia & Tubereuse. A bouquet of opulent white flowers in a twilit room in the evening.At dusk, the heady fragrance of this intoxicating, beguiling flower deploys its captivating sensuality.

With proper care, diptyque candles burn for 50 to 60 hours. Here are tips for safely prolonging the life of your candles.

Burn Time
The first time you burn your diptyque candle, allow it to burn for at least two hours, until the whole top is liquid with wax. This will help your candle burn more evenly the next time.

Trim The Wick
Before lighting your diptyque candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick you allow it to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.

Realign The Wick
After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.

Never leave a lit candle unattended. This could be a fire risk. Always place your candle on a level, heat resistant, non-flammable surface away from fabric or drapes. Choose an area free from drafts to avoid uneven burning. Do not place your candle on a marble or glass surface. If the bottom of the hot candle glass comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.

My fav concealer for under eyes will be cle de peau BEAUTE. I've not try GA's corrector as we can't get GA's products here.
