Any scent-obsessed friend would tell you, a home isn’t complete without the right fragrance to accompany it, which makes the new scented candles by Jo Malone London all the more alluring. Called The Townhouse Collection, you’re looking at a selection of scents inspired by imaginary scenes that would take place within a London townhouse. The six candles are also housed in elegant ceramic jars, so you know sophistication’s in tip-top form — trust us when we say we want them all.
To set the mood, imagine the sweet scent of baked goods wafting from the drawing room, the fresh warmth of a garden room, or one that will remind you of cosy nights by a fireplace. None of this may apply to our humble HDB flats, but one can dream, and still fall in love with the enchanting creations by Celine Roux, Head of Fragrance for Jo Malone London.
Creatively, these are inspired by the Jo Malone London Townhouse itself, which is a stunning classic Georgian residence built 200 years ago. Likewise, the ceramic jars reference the same vintage Georgian architecture, and feature cornicing, columns, and textures you’ll find in a 1700s home. You bet they’re classy enough to fit right into our modern homes, especially since the unglazed matte surface adds an unfussy flair to the decorative elements.
Here are the six scents and their inspirations:
- WILD BERRY & BRAMBLE — Welcome Home. The scent for any hour. The style for any place. A signature scent for the home.
- PASTEL MACAROONS — Afternoon Tea. The taste of temptation. Delectable desserts in the drawing room.
- GREEN TOMATO VINE — The Garden Room. Sunlight captured. Vines warmed inside. A place to linger.
- GLOWING EMBERS — A Cosy Night In. Pages turn in front of the fire. A moment to kindle your imagination.
- LILAC LAVENDER & LOVAGE — Calming Sundays. Gentle rain on the window. The comfort of clean white sheets.
- FRESH FIG & CASSIS — A Sunlit Morning. Late summer nostalgia. Fig trees embraced by the sun. A freshness on the breeze.
