Way back in June the hubby surprised me with a Jo Malone candle for my birthday. I'm completely obsessed with candles, as well as Jo Malone and always spend a good 15 minutes hanging around the JM counter in Selfridges. I think I have a wishlist a mile long for Jo Malone goodies and this candle in Green Tomato Leaf was up there with the best. There was something really nostalgic about this scent and I knew I needed it in my candle collection.
This was my first JM candle and I have to say I'm a complete convert. You can smell this as soon as it's lit and the scent seems to travel throughout the house in a matter of minutes. I live in a three story house and the hubby commented he was getting wafts even up on the third floor. The best thing about this is the subtleness. This isn't overpowering but leaves a gorgeous sweet, green scent throughout the house which just smells incredible.
I've followed the instructions and trim the wick before lighting, as well as putting the candle out with a snuffer rather than blowing the wax. This is made the candle burn evenly and I'm hoping to not leave any of this gorgeous wax behind.
So the question is, are they worth the £40 price tag? In my opinion, absolutely. If my bank balance would allow I'd have a Jo Malone candle in every room. As well as a reed diffuser and linen spray... If you're a candle fanatic like me, you need one of these in your life.
