Alternatives to Diptyque Baies

Not sure where to post this but thought S&B might be the best place.

I want to buy a candle for a friend of mine. She loves Diptyque Baies so I wanted something similar but with a smaller price tag.

Does anyone know of anything that might fit the bill?

Sanctuary black rose and cassis has similar notes to Diptyque. The throw is not going to be as good as Diptyque and the packaging is not as lovely. It's cheaper though.:-)

Can't think of one that's like Baies but & Other Stories candles are great and made by the same people as Byredo. Kungholmstorg is quite similar do Diptyque's Feu de Bois. The wicks aren't quite long enough to catch the last half centimetre of wax but the packaging is v nice and they are under £20.

Oh and I think True Grace might do a blackcurrant. Baies is blackcurrant leaf with a bit rose I think so look at anything with blackcurrant/cassis type notes

Thanks for the suggestions. Heading to town tomorrow so I'll hopefully be able to pick up one of them.
