HOLIDAY 2012 SWEET ALMOND & MACAROON DELUXE CANDLE

JO MALONE SWEET ALMOND & MACAROON SCENTED CANDLEPRODUCT RATING: ★★★★★★★★★★ (10/10)

PRICE DETAILS: $130 for 400g (♦♦♦♦♦)

PRESENTATION: Heavy weight glass with silver finish lid

SCENT: A truly luxurious and comforting gourmand, rich with almonds, coconut, vanilla and cherry.

BURN TIME: 90 hours

QUICK REVIEW: I cannot stop admiring this candle. The perpetual simplicity of Jo Malone, from the heavyweight buttercream and ebony packaging to the truly inspiring uncomplicated fragrances – I am in awe. While I’ve been through several bottles (Nectarine Blossom & Honey, Pomegranate Noir and Nutmeg & Ginger), my absolute favorite is the one my husband has been wearing for 5 years (since I gave him his first bottle) – Grapefruit.

This special Holiday Edition JO MALONE SWEET ALMOND & MACAROON DELUXE CANDLE ($130, jomalone.com) has easily become another favorite. A gourmand devotee at heart, I adore sweet, warm fragrances. This quietly envelopes the home with a delicate wisp of dominant almond and cherry and is thoughtfully rounded by vanilla and a hint of coconut.  I’m going to burn through the 90 hours before the tornado of holiday wrap has time to hit the Pergo.
