I know what you’re thinking – I said the “C” word, and you think you hate me. Well, don’t worry, by the time you’ve looked through this loveliness from Jo Malone London you will no longer hate me – in fact, you’ll be wishing the remainder of Autumn away so you can find some of these chic little boxes under the tree.
Firstly – the visuals. SO beautiful yes? A gorgeous 1950s inspired Christmas soiree, awash with shades of jade, teal and chartreuse – I absolutely love the fashion, and if my Boxing Day nibbles could look like this, well, that would be ideal thanks.
Here’s a round up of some of my fave gifts from Jo Malone Christmas. Engraving and calligraphy are going to be available in store over the Christmas period so you can personalise your presents, along with a same day delivery service available in central London for any last minute gifts!

For Home Scent Lovers
Scented Travel Candle Collection £64
Three travel size candles in bestseller Blackberry & Bay, and then seasonal Pine & Eucalyptus and collection exclusive travel sized Roasted Chestnut. Perfect for those who like to travel with scent (it’s sooo What Would JLo Do, I know, but I do take at least one candle on holiday with me)
Jo Malone London Roasted Chestnut Deluxe Candle, £120 (above)
You all know how I feel about candles by now. You can only guess how I feel about this. This seasonal candle scent is literally a cosy winter in a glass. The mistletoe print is playful and stylish, which I love and I can’t think of much better for a beautiful Christmas table centre piece. If you fancy another Winter scent for home, there’s also Pine & Eucalyptus which is also perfect for the season.
What’s going on your list? I’ve been debating the Intense Colognes for a while as I’ve never had one, so I’m thinking the travel collection would be on mine, along with the Travel Candle Collection (I’m all about the variety!). Mr J did manage to successfully get himself to Jo Malone last year after a lot of wildly unsubtle hints, and I’m hoping he’ll be tripping down there again come Christmas Eve (his annual shopping outing) for my Christmas gifts as it’s such a failsafe option for my Christmas presents. Oh, and the advent calendar would be just peachy thanks!
