When it comes to candles, I’ve come to find that there are those that love them and those that just can’t understand the hype; much like Marmite, you either love them or you can’t stand them.

I count myself as a true candle lover and, to me, a home isn’t really a home until it has a sweetly-smelling candle scenting its surroundings. Over the years I’ve worked my way through a fair number of waxy wonders, from the supermarket basics to the most luxuriously fragranced treats.

So imagine my delight when this incredible Jo Malone number popped up under the Christmas tree. Beautifully packaged and superbly scented, the Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay candle is the ultimate antidote to my current winter blues. Warm yet refreshing, sweet yet not overpowering, this wonderfully sweet scent has been my fragrance of choice in recent weeks and has helped me to bridge the gap between the bitterly cold winter and the coming spring months.

While perhaps pricey to some, to me this fantastic fragrance is worth every pound and this candle has been happily burning away on my bedside table every day since I found it nestled under the tree. Slow to burn but quick to fill a room with the most incredible scent, I can’t fault this candle for a second. It truly is the perfect springtime scent.

    Lime basil and Mandarin is, without a doubt, my favourite scent. Mind you, I presently have the pomegranate scented oil and that is divine too x

    1. The pomegranate is amazing. We have the room spray at home and it smells incredible. The Lime, Basil and Mandarin is delicious too. X
