Jo Malone has launched a new candle collection – for a very important reason

Jo Malone

Who doesn’t love a good Jo Malone scent? It’s the ultimate treat purchase, filling your homes with some truly gorgeous scents. You can take them with you on the go too, with their perfumes.

But now you can buy a candle and make a real difference, because Jo Malone London have teamed up with Irish charity Pieta House, a community-based support service for those struggling with mental health.

The luxury company have championed charities before, and their partnership with Pieta House is their latest venture. When you buy any of the candles in the new range, you’ll be making a real difference to those who may be suicidal, or are struggling with the loss of a family member due to suicide.

The four candles available in the new range are White Lilac and Rhubarb, Peony and Moss, Iris and Lady Moore, and brand new Lily of the Valley and Ivy.

Not only do they smell great and support a worthy cause, but the design of the candle jars are beautiful to look at. They have a lovely nature theme, featuring leaves and plants alongside the logo.

The candles retail for £45, with a donation equal to 75 per cent of the RRP supporting individuals and their families who are affected by mental health.

A statement on Pieta House’s website reads, 'Everything is free of charge and our staff are fully qualified and provide a professional one-to-one therapeutic service for people who are experiencing suicidal ideation, people who have attempted suicide and people who are engaging in self-harm.

'We’re passionate about our life-saving work. As 90% of our income comes from fundraising events, we rely heavily on the support and encouragement of our volunteers and friends of Pieta.'

If you’re interested in purchasing a candle, they’re available from Jo Malone’s website and stockists such as John Lewis and Partners.
