This post is about one of my absolute favourite Christmas presents this year! Anyone who knows me will be able to tell you how much I would love a Jo Malone candle… and my lovely Nan and Grandad surprised me with one for Christmas. Every single thing from Jo Malone smells so good.. However they do come for a price. Jo Malone is a rather expensive brand, so products from there are seen as more of a luxury to me and I wouldn’t normally be able to justify spending £42 on a candle. But this is why I was so excited when I laid my eyes upon this absolutely stunning packaging.
How beautiful is that packaging?! As soon as you lift the lid off of the box, the scent of the candle wafts up. It’s hard to describe how fresh and lovely this smells, so if you haven’t smelled this one before and you’re ever near a Jo Malone counter, GO AND SMELL IT. I’d almost describe it a slice of heaven in a little container.
Now on paper, the scent of Lime Basil and Mandarin wouldn’t be the type of smell I would want. But oh would I have been wrong!
The only problem I’m having at the moment, is I don’t ever want to light it as I want it to last as long as possible!
