Two words: Holy Crap.
I was given this candle as a leaving present from my workplace (I had dropped a few hints, not gonna lie), and when I opened it up it brought tears to my eyes.
I’ve always wanted something from Jo Malone, not only because it’s a beautiful brand with some mouth-watering scents, but because it’s such a coveted brand too. I love a statement beauty piece. But something wasn’t quite right. I’m not a fan of the much loved blackberry & bay and I can definitely leave Pomegranate Noir. I searched high and low until I was blue in the face (and had a banging headache)… Why couldn’t I find a JM scent I truly loved? Then the Just Like Sunday collection launched and I saw the Sweet Almond & Macaroon candle. It was true love.
If you’re not a fan of almonds or marzipan, this really isn’t for you. Lucky for me, almonds are my favourite scent ever (and don’t I go on about it). I could smell this candle before I even opened the lid; it’s a very intense scent which will fill your house, which is great for the whopping £39 price tag. It’s sweet and spring-like, and reminds me of a Parisian bakery full of macarons. This is now my most prized possession, and it’s left me wanting to grow my Jo Malone collection.
