I love candles – tea lights, tapered dinner candles, scented votives, the lot! I recently decided to splash out on some luxury scented candles, and since then they’ve been somewhat of an addiction…
One of the most iconic brands is Jo Malone, whose range of fragrances can be mixed and matched for a bespoke scent. The range is amazing (one of my favourites is red roses) but the brand’s distinctively wrapped candles caught my eye.
With their minimalist black, white and silver labelling and lid, and black ribbon, they make an amazing item just to keep on your mantelpiece.
When you order online, they arrive gift wrapped in a beautiful box, complete with a box of matches! How’s about that for attention to detail?
As I’m on a macaroon kick at the moment, I ordered one of the Sweet Almond and Macaroon home candles from the Just Like Sunday range. Other scents from the range include Incense and Embers, Lavender and Lovage, and another favourite of mine, Green Tomato Leaf!
Each candle is £39 and has a burn time of 45 hours. The scent is so intense that you’ll really only need to light it for a couple of hours to fill your house with the sweet aroma of sugary vanilla and almonds.
I can’t think of many more decadent scents than this – and the packaging makes this a fantastic present too, even if it is for yourself! Check out the range at www.jomalone.co.uk here.
