It's no surprise that taking first place among the most popular Jo Malone candles is none other than Pomegranate Noir, as the warm and heady but refreshingly fruity candle has been known to become one of the best Jo Malone fragrances that can instantly warm any room.

"This fragrance is really original as fruity scents tend to be sweet and gourmand but Pomegranate Noir is woody, sensual and dark," says Emma South, Jo Malone London Fragrance & Lifestyle Expert.

"A lot of heady flowers and woods were used to create this enigmatic, sensual scent," adds Emma, which is perfect for cold winter's nights—although we (and obviously a lot of other Jo Malone candle fans) love it all year round!

If you love a citrus candle, this is the buy for you. Deliciously fresh and zingy, it's no surprise that this is so many people's signature scent—for the home and for the body.

"A modern classic that proves even the most unconventional marriages can stand the test of time," says Emma South. "Some may think that basil is a leftfield choice for a modern-day fragrance, but basil has a story that echoes through the centuries; across distant lands, via ancient cures, loved by monarchs and poets alike. A past rooted in romance and remedies.

"It’s the unconventional hero of our modern classic, Lime Basil & Mandarin. Where peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze."

"Peony and Blush Suede is the most popular wedding scent for brides," says Emma. "It bottles abundant, endlessly unfurling peony petals in every shade of pink accompanied by the flirtatious bite of juicy red apple.

"A scent which is at once both soft and feminine and strong and powerful, the beauty of this heavenly scent lies in its duality. Wear on days when you need a little confidence boost and on days when you’re walking tall."
