Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle

Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle

Last year I was fortunate enough to be invited to the opening of SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) Redhall Walled Gardens in Edinburgh, which is being funded by Jo Malone London. Basically it is the most tranquil and divine place within an urban area that features a 6 acre estate, in which SAMH offer training in: horticulture, conservation, maintenance skills, ITC/admin and life skills for people with mental health problems. It is a beautiful idea and really does help those in need, if you bought the Jo Malone Silk Blossom Candle or Cologne last year you have in turn helped support this wonderful cause and other gardens across the UK and North America.  This year the chance to help fund such concepts comes via - Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle.

Not only is the packaging utterly breathtaking but the fragrance is too - a light, candied, fruit blend highlighted with powdery white lilac and soft rose notes. Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle is the perfect scent to burn all Spring and Summer - it is light, floral and uplifting. No doubt much like it has for myself, it will remind you of your childhood and one too many sweets. The rhubarb note within the Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle rings true of those chewy rhubarb and custard sweets, now you can enjoy the scent without the calories - always great when you have a sweet tooth. A quintessentially British scent and taste come to life.

Yes at £43 this is not cheap, but Jo Malone will donate the full retail price (minus VAT) to a great variety of very deserving charities throughout the UK such as : The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, The Kirkdale Country Garden, Rotunda Limited in Liverpool, Redhall Walled Garden in Edinburgh (mentioned above), Thrive - The Society for Horticultural Therapy in Battersea as well as the yet to be opened Castle Park Physic Garden in Bristol and more. A scrumptiously scented candle that helps support those in need, as well as aiding beautiful spaces of serenity within the UK!

In a nutshell Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle smells great and helps support greater causes - you couldn't ask for more.

The Jo Malone White Lilac and Rhubarb Charity Candle £42 will launch this coming May.
