Love: Jo Malone's fragrant Christmas wonderland



Christmas is most definitely a time for giving, and if you’ve got a beauty freak in your life then the possibilities are endless. Some beauty companies ‘do’ the festive season much better than others, and one of my first ports of call is conveniently smack bang in the middle of Britomart - Jo Malone.
Jo Malone is a company that has been synonymous with covetable, luxurious gifting since the moment that first bought one of their famous scents to life, and each Christmas they truly excel. This year it’s a Blue Christmas for the modern British icon, with blue baubles and hints of blue fir putting much emphasis on their light and bright new Blue Spruce scent – a riot of festive gorgeousness if ever their was one! It’s available as a Deluxe Candle for $395, a real investment but one that will keep on giving for months to come. There is also a truly decadent, carol-worthy Pine & Eucalyptus Luxury Candle available that is a whopping 2.5kg and comes with an RRP of $840, whilst the same festive scent also comes in the form of a home candle, Scent Surround Diffuser and Room Spray. If you’ve opted for a faux Christmas tree this year then this scent is for you - your home will be awash with the scent of pine but without the dropped needles, hayfever and messy disposal that are part and parcel of the real thing! For sharing the festive spirit en masse I love Jo Malone’s Christmas Crackers as the perfect stocking filler or luxe table setting, each containing Grapefruit body creme (15ml), Lime, Basil and Mandarin body and hand wash (15ml) and Blackberry & Bay cologne (9ml). They have also created very cute Christmas tree ‘ornament’ gifts containing English Pear & Freesia (15ml) body creme and Pomegranate Noir cologne (15ml), which will definitely be appreciated come December 25. 
It goes without saying that the gift wrapping is done for you - major bonus! - too, with all Jo Malone goodies dispensed all wrapped up with the distinctive black and cream striped Jo Malone bows. Just beautiful!
