I Spy: Carrot & Stick Press and Diptyque

I always get a thrill seeing items we sell at Trocadero make appearances on other people's blogs.

Once a week, Paloma from La Dolce Vita posts beautiful and inspirational quotes that she pairs with equally thought-provoking photos. The image above, which corresponds with this quote, caught my attention because it features two products we sell at Trocadero: Carrot & Stick Press notebooks and Diptyque candles.

We carry the striped Carrot & Stick Press notebook in red, green and brown, and it retails for only $7. The soft-covered notebook is blank inside, so you can write, sketch and doodle to your heart's content without having to worry about staying inside the lines. Keep yourself organized by buying one in each color and using them to keep your projects or To Do lists separate.

Diptyque candles have always been a bestseller for us, and we currently have 11 different scents in stock that retail at $65 each. While we don't have Roses, which is shown in the photograph, we do have Rose Geranium in stock. Isn't this description, from the company's website, just beautiful?
The citrus scented leaf of the queen of flowers in Provence gardens releases all its fervent glory.
What makes Diptyque candles so special? For starters, it's the care that's put into the production of each one. The wax is properly distributed so that the candle burns evenly for 50-60 hours and the wick is straightened by hand.

Do you have a favorite Diptyque scent?
