That Selfridges have 20% off all candles including Jo Malone and Diptyque.

No need to thank me 😂 (Put my order in before I posted just incase there was a rush!)

Do they?! I can't see the discounts on the Diptyque ones!

You have to use the code Selfcce showme

glueandstick Fri 25-Nov-16 22:20:47

Use the code SELFCCE

Ah too late!

ShowMePotatoSalad Fri 25-Nov-16 22:22:15

Aha! Thank you!

20% off clothes and home and 10% off beauty. Just got some fancy make up brushes myself.

Also, lovers of expensive candles - Oliver Bonas candles are made by the same supplier with the same ingredients as Jo Malone ones. They are a LOT cheaper.....

I thought you were going to say that they are a complete waste of money and that you may as well set fire to a £10 note. fblush

glueandstick Fri 25-Nov-16 23:01:42

Nope. I bloody love them!

Thank you!!! smile

Have you never wondered why candles are usually sold by the same shops that sell cleaning products and paint?

chickenowner Fri 25-Nov-16 23:20:22

Are they?

Sorry but if it ain't Yankee it's just plain Wanky

I'm fairly sure Diptyque don't do loo cleaner (and if they did it would be amazing grin) and waitrose stocks carrots as well. Clearly a link!

Yankee is nasty chemically crap

Every year I buy the Diptyque pine/resin scented candle and the ESPA cinnamony/spicey one because I have usually earned loads of points at Libertys

I fucking love posh candles.

I have never smelt a pleasant scented Yankee candle. Not ever.

LadyOfTheCanyon Sat 26-Nov-16 07:30:42

Someone who normally fills their house with Jo Malone and diptyque candles gave me a Yankee candle last year. I have subsequently gone NC. wink

Anniegetyourgun Sat 26-Nov-16 07:47:26

I thought you were going to say they were made with some unlikely, unpleasant ingredient which Snopes would discredit in a heartbeat (bless them).

WhisperingLoudly Sat 26-Nov-16 07:57:59

Thanks OP just stocked up on tubereuse!

WhisperingLoudly Sat 26-Nov-16 07:58:50

And Yankee give me an appalling headache if I just walk past them in a shop - the thought of lighting one makes me feel nauseous

I'd only buy a Yankee Candle for someone I truly despise. They give me migraines with their awful scents.

I do like a Jo Malone, and in terms of scent versus cost it works out cheaper I think.

I love a quality scented candle.
But Yankee are just cheap chemical guff.
