Jo Malone Sweet Almond & Macaroon Candle








When the temperature drops outside I always find myself craving home comforts. There's just something so satisfying about being warm and cosy while the bad weather whirls around outside. On dreary, drizzly evenings like tonight, when I'm feeling slightly worse for wear (damn you, winter colds!), I like nothing better than setting up some mood lighting, snuggling up on the sofa with my faux fur blanket, and watching something uplifting - at the moment it's the new Aziz Ansari series on Netflix, SO good!

Right now I've got my Jo Malone Home Candle burning away. It's a big candle, but quite expensive so I like to save it for times I want to feel extra special and pampered. I've been known to spend ages in Jo Malone boutiques having a good sniff of everything, but this Sweet Almond & Macaroon scent is actually the first candle by the brand I've ever owned.

As always with Jo Malone, unwrapping the packaging was a luxury in itself and I love how the candles come with a box of long matches (they look a lot more chic than my newsagent lighter). The glass container is super sturdy and the chunky silver lid is a great touch too, as it stops the candle from collecting dust.

Obviously, the best part is its delectable scent - a warm and comforting blend of sweet almond, creamy coconut, rich cherries and soft vanilla that fills the whole room. It really does smell exactly like a box of macaroons, not a synthetic note in sight! Or smell? Either way, the uber high quality fragrance makes this really worth the price.
