Review | Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle

Oh, hello.
The most gorgeous, luxurious, candle I have ever owned. How I will ever pluck up the courage to burn this I will never know. At £42, this candle does not come cheap. Every time I burn it I would think "well, that is £5 just burnt away" but no, that is not the correct mindset to have. Jo Malone is pure luxury. I first fell in love with her products when I walked past a counter and I thought "hey, that is from Instagram!" which is where I had only ever seen the products before but wow, seeing it in the flesh and actually being able to smell the scents, the colognes, the luxurious body creams... I first thought Wood Sage and Sea Salt was my favourite but then I smelt Pomegranate Noir.. Wow. Dark and Enigmatic, Pomegranate Noir is nothing like I have smelt before. It is completely unique and a scent so strong I could smell it as soon as I lifted it out of the box. Imagine my surprise when I woke up on Christmas Day and found this sat underneath my Christmas Tree. The Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle.

About the Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle:
"The sensuality of a daring red dress. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. Dark and enigmatic. To uplift, to wind down, or simply to add an air of luxury. Transform the atmosphere with luxury and opulence. Candle burn time is 45 hours and includes lid."

The Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle is the smell I imagine which will greet me when I arrive in Heaven. It is a very deep, peppery scent with a very subtle hint of sweetness. With top notes of pomegranate, heart notes of casablanca lily and base notes of guaiacwood, Pomegranate Noir is a woody and peppery unisex scent which smells even more luxurious than it costs. If you like light scents then this may not be for you as it is a big and powerful fragrance, a fragrance of pure luxury. I cannot really write enough about a fragrance for you to understand what it smells like without actually smelling it but I do know that it is the best thing I have probably ever smelt and whilst it may be expensive, it sure is worth it.

After owning one product from Jo Malone, I am now itching to buy more. I am very tempted by the Pomegranate Noir Cologne and the Pomegranate Noir Body Creme, or even layering up two different scents together. I have heard that Pomegranate Noir and English Pear & Freesia go really well together. Jo Malone actually have a fragrance combination chart on their website so you can create a bespoke scent by layering up the colognes to create either a warmer or fresher scent, depending on which your initial favourite scent is.

It may take me a while to pluck up the courage to actually burn it, but the Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle is pure luxury and the ultimate gift to receive. From the box it comes in tied with a symbolic bow, down to the complimentary black matches within the box to light the candle with, can you beat the gift of a Jo Malone Candle? I will never look at a Yankee Candle with such fondness ever again. Jo Malone has truly stolen my heart and replaced it with a beautiful smelling, albeit expensive one.
