So right now the UK is recuperating from it’s first official “heatwave” of the summer, so I know a candle might not be at the top of everyone’s must have list, but this one is just so gorgeous I had to mention it.
The Silk Blossom scent comes in a candle which I purchased for £42, and a cologne which comes in at the slightly steeper £82. Very pricey yes but all the proceeds of the candle go to the Jo Malone charity which builds gardens in underprivileged areas, so it’s pretty much the most feel-good purchase you’ll nab this year!
Described as “Nature’s blooms at their most tempting. The nectarous, pink-fringed pompoms of Silk Blossom. Irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. Apricot-fresh with a touch of spice. Airy with clouds of powder-soft heliotrope, nestling on a bed of moss. Fruity and enticing.” It’s the epitome of a fresh and summery scent which works equally as great as a room or personal scent. Not to mention the gorgeous ombre design of the products make them almost impossible to resist!
The candles are pretty much sold out everywhere although I would have to recommend to beg, borrow or steal to get one, as its versatility and mix of complex scents makes it a perfect scent for a modern woman looking for a hint of sophistication in Summer. I know I’ll definitely be counting the pennies until I can afford the cologne as well!
