Nicole Richie: “I really love the relaxed vibe of friends sitting on the floor, D.L. & Co. candles burning, and listening to music,” Richie told Elle Décor.
Blake Liveley : “These [Le Labo Santal 26] are my favorite candles because you can personalize the labels, so they make good gifts,” Lively told Marie Claire.
Sam Rollinson: “My favorite candle is the jasmine-scented one from Diptyque. I get it for my mum or any of my friends, because it has a lovely fragrance that fills the room almost as soon as you light it,” the model revealed to Vogue.
