Why you'll want everything in Jo Malone London's Christmas collection
If there's one gift that never fails to enchant no matter the occasion, it's one that comes in a certain cream box with a black bow. This year Jo Malone London draws on the British harlequinade for inspiration — both in it striking campaign images and in the chequered packaging of its limited edition products. Harlequinades are a comedic pantomime that were traditionally performed over the Christmas and New Year period as family entertainment during the festive season, making it a cool, but slightly quirky reference point — perfect for the English brand.
This year the brand's limited edition scent is Orange Bitters, which you'll find in a decorative candle and a 100ml cologne. If you love this intoxicating scent, it's best you stock up on this baby so that it lasts you through the year. Then there are the festive goodies that make great gifts and even better indulgences. We love Christmas crackers, so the brand's luxed-up version — hint: you get Jo Malone London products rather than plastic trinkets — is definitely on our 'To Buy' list. The oversized Advent Calendar is also something that will really kickstart your countdown to the holiday season while the Miniature Candles Collection is something you should reserve for the near and dear who have been really good this year. If Christmas isn't Christmas without a super traditional scent for you, you'll want to pick up the brand's classic seasonal scent offering, Pine & Eucalyptus, that comes in a jumbo 2.5kg candle and a scent diffuser among other home fragrancing options.
From $52-$847. Available from November at Jo Malone London stores
