We look to celebrities for style inspiration and skincare expertise, so why not copy their home decor, too? While A-lister-approved furniture may be out of our price range, not even celebrities can resist the allure of a simple candle. In fact, we might have just found the most popular candle among celebrities, and it’s available to shop on Nordstrom.

In a recent interview about her collaboration with Privé Revaux, Adriana Lima told InStyle that she couldn’t live without her candles. “Beauty is all about everything you feel… and aromatherapy, to me, is part of beauty,” she said, revealing that her favorite scent is Diptque’s Gardenia Scented Candle. “It’s the sexiest thing,” according to Lima.

Apparently, she’s not the only celebrity who thinks so. Kourtney Kardashian recently posted a video on her Instagram Stories featuring the exact same Diptyque candle burning on a table beside a sleek vase. Plenty of other noteworthy names have also shared their love of the French candle brand, including Kerry Washington, Kate Hudson, Gal Gadot, and even Meghan Markle (she reportedly lit one right before walking down the aisle on her wedding day).

So what is it about this candle that has celebrities so enamored? Could it be its floral scent, its minimalist design, it’s warm glow, or perhaps its impressive 60-hour burn time? No matter the reason, this candle is clearly a hit among A-list noses, and that has us itching to curl up with a good book, a cup of tea, and this sweet-smelling fragrance.

Luckily, the candle is available to shop on Nordstrom. At $68 a pop, it’s a bit pricey for a humble candle, but it’s totally worth it to find out what a celebrity’s home smells like, right?
