Yesterday I wasn't having the best of days - y'know one of the days that anything and everything goes wrong and you call it quits by 3pm? Yep that was my Tuesday however I was lucky enough to meet one of the lovely ladies from the Jo Malone London press team and got a very sneak peek of the upcoming Christmas collections and let me tell you ladies and gentlemen it really is special. With a new scent and lots of cute Christmas gift sets you will be hard pushed walking away without purchasing something as soon as I get the press images I will of course share it on here.
Anyway as a gift I was greeted with the most divine and luxurious Jo Malone candle (no-one quite does sumptuous home living like this brand do they?) in the scent Pomegranate Noir which is available all year round. Jo Malone list the scent as sensual with notes of ruby-rich pomegranate, raspberry and plum , spiked with pink pepper, laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods.
Now bear with me as I fumble my words slightly trying to accurately portray just how beautiful this scent is - it is deep, heedy and somewhat mysterious yet smells familiar. It has a fruity base yet is deep and dark with tiny hints of spice trickling through and couldn't be more fitting for the Autumn/Winter seasons. I am tempted to say it reminds me somewhat of a refined Christmas mince pie but that doesn't do it much justice. Pomegranate Noir is like a cognac it warms, comforts, uplifts and leaves you feeling tingly and somewhat sleepy - to imagine it burning alongside a roaring fire is rather dreamy. As you can imagine within 20 minutes of burning such candle the entire room with beautifully scented and within an hour the house shared the same scrumptious scent which is no mean feat, the lounge still has the scent lingering despite 12 hours passing. I have now carefully placed it back in its box ready for the crisp Autumn evenings to arrive.
