PER­FUMED can­dles in Paris? Mais oui. You must get to Dip­tyque (34 boule­vard Saint-Ger­main, 5th) and scoop up a Feu de Bois Gris 300g can­dle (‘‘woody fam­ily’’) and look at the room sprays (fruity, flo­ral, spicy, herbal or woody col­lec­tions) and its clas­sic uni­sex eau de toi­lette L’Eau, launched in 1968 and now even avail­able as a travel-handy roll-on. Cire Trudon (78 rue de Seine, 6th) has been in the can­dle busi­ness since 1643 and th­ese are the full luxe, made from the finest wax and last­ing longer than most other brands. In hand-crafted glass hold­ers, the heady range in­cludes Tri­anon, with ‘‘jas­mine, wild roses, wild herbs from the mead­ows . . .’’ Also avail­able at the grand Le Bon Marche in Sain­tGer­main-des-Pres on the Left Bank.
