Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle Review

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle

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.

  1. If I had to pick a favourite candle of all time, this would be it! The scent is absolutely mesmerising x

  2. You've made me want to run out of the door and smell this now! I'm definitely going to look into this for a christmas gift, thank you!
    I love candles, but I never feel as if I burn them correctly - there is apparently a certain way? I'm not sure, but if you know I'd love for you to share :) xx

  3. Oh Pomegranite Noir is my fave bathtime scent so I can only imagine how amazing the candle is you lucky thing.


  4. I love the Jo Malone candles and this one is perfect for autumn/winter. Xx

  5. I'm sure they are amazing, but way to expensive :(

  6. I have the cologne in Pomegranate Noir and I love it!! It's my favourite ever! This candle is on my b-day / christmas list.. such a shame it's soo expensive :(

  7. Candles are my downfall. I can justify spending as much on them as I do an item of clothing, possibly not this year but I am rather tempted.

  8. I've never tried any of the Jo Malone candles before, they look lovely!

  9. I would love to try Jo Malone candles or colognes!

  10. Im so toying with myself about buying the grapefruit one, this might have to be added to my wishlist as i love autumn/winter scents :)

    Following you, would love you to follow mine back.

  12. Am I the only person who is ridiculously impressed by the Jo Malone matches?! It's the little things that make brands so luxurious.
