From the bathroom to the guest room, to one coquettish flickering while you sink into the sofa with a glass of wine… that enclosing aroma and cosy light is a symbol of relaxation and an accessory that enhances any home.
Products like Diptyque, The White Company and Molton Brown candles adorn every room of the house and bring us a feeling of calm and relaxation.
According to a report by Vend, the preferred retail point-of-sale software of the British Independent Retail Association, Brits buy an average of six candles per year at £7.40 a go, meaning the country collectively spends £1.9bn on them annually. Vend’s data found that candle-buying spikes around Mother’s Day in March, as well as over the festive period.
A candle is also a gift you always hope to receive, especially if it comes in an immaculately wrapped box, swathed in a perfectly tied black ribbon. Because of all the beautiful smelling burners are there any more iconic or more coveted than a Jo Malone one?
We’ve rounded up the brand’s best new offerings that you’ll want to pop on to your Christmas wish list…
This is a warming winter cocktail - a delectable mix of Christmas fruits. You’ll smell a drop of sweet orange and a splash of bitter orange, followed by sensual sandalwood and amber.
