I am a huge fan of Jo Malone products and their 2009 holiday offerings did not disappoint. This season, I think they have created many beautiful, high quality items that are worth the splurge because these are statement making gifts. A couple of my favorites are:
Pomegranate Noir Deluxe Candle ($130 US)
This is one of those heavy, substantive candles that looks beautiful and classy, lasts a long time and makes your house smell like the holidays. The pomegranate noir scent combines the sweet fruity notes of raspberry, plum, pink pepper and pomegranate with patchouli, frankincense and spicy woods. I would describe the scent as fresh and slightly fruity with an earthy spicy quality. This is definitely a spendy candle but the quality and longevity make it worth it.
This is a precious boxed set of Jo Malone fragrances designed for you to play and combine your preferred fragrance combinations. Basically, you start with the Jo Malone classic fragrance Lime Basil & Mandarin and then you combine it with one of three accompanying fragrances (Mandarin, Sweet Basil or Amberwood) that are designed enhance the top, heart and base notes of this signature cologne. This is a fun, creative concept and what I like the most is that you get at least four different fragrances for the price of one. My favorite combo is Lime Basil & Mandarin with the Mandarin Cologne. It’s fresh and clean with subtle citrus notes.
