Cire Trudon are now my fav candles w/Annick Goutal taking 2nd spot. I've owned 3 Diptyques and they were ok but I wouldn't repurchase. This, however, I just smelled burning in a shop & I think it's going to be my next candle purchase. It smelled very fragrant and realistic.

This is ok. Not a very strong fragrance nor does it have much throw. Pleasant. I would buy it again, unless I find a different brand of Jasmine candle with stronger fragrance and better throw.

I'm not as blown away by this candle as I thought I would be. It doesn't burn at all cleanly and the throw isn't as knockout strong as I had hoped. However it is a lovely jasmine smell (not too green, not too indolic, just jasmine) so I really can't complain too much. The only floral Diptyque I would repurchase so far is Narcisse (except that in their wisdom they have discontinued it...).

This is the first high-end candle I have tried and it's worth every penny. It burns cleanly and evenly with the most beautiful, true-jasmine scent and the throw is incredible. Literally I only have to light it for half an hour and it scents not only the entire room, but the adjacent rooms as well, *and* lingers on into the next day. I love it!

I'm so surprised that nobody has reviewed this one yet. This is my first Diptyque candle - I just had to try one to see what all the hype was about. There are only 2 or three small boutiques in my city that stock these, so I had to track them down. The guy in the shop I bought it from (a menswear shop!) said that Jasmin was his favourite, and the other SA said he like Tubereuse. It was a hard decision since I hadn't smelt any of them. I felt tempted by the baies in the black jar, but it was AUD90 as opposed to AUD75. I was told that Jasmin was a safe one and I figured i had to start somewhere, so I took the plunge. At first I felt guilty about spending so much on a candle and I will have to go without other things to afford it (phone credit etc). I contemplated returning it but in the end I burnt it and it was so worthwhile. Maybe all candles do this, but it gave such a beautiful ambience to the room. And even unlit it had so much presence and looked so stylish. Little did I know that you don't really need to light it in order to scent a room. It was only burning for a very short while before my bedroom was vvery strongly scented. Then the scent lingered into the next day, dispite having the windows open. The smell became a bit much at night and kept me awake a bit and I have since put it back in its box, but I can still smell it. Not that it smells bad, just so strong. I can see that this is going to last me ages. It doesn't smell quite as delicate as real Jasmin, but it is pleasant enough and still the best candle I have ever tried. I guess I should try the others to put it into perspective. I can feel an addiction coming on
