jo malone wild fig and cassis candle

For Christmas I was a very lucky girl and received my first ever Jo Malone candle in the scent 'Wild Fig & Cassis' to match the cologne that I already own. It's a beautifully fresh, uplifting scent with an element of woody musk which creates the perfect fragrance for a candle. I was a little worried at first that the scent may be too strong but thankfully it doesn't overwhelm my room and is delicate yet noticeable. This version is perfect for a crisp Winter morning or a fresh Spring afternoon, I also have my eye firmly set on the Pomegranate Noir candle to use in the evening. They may be pricey but with a burning time of 45 hours they are well worth considering as a special treat.


  1. This sounds beautiful. I wish I could justify spending this much on a candle as I'm desperate to try one! x


  2. ah this looks so beautiful I wouldn't want to burn it! I adore Jo Malone scents, they really are amazing.


  3. I've always wanted to try a Jo Malone candle, or a Diptyque one but I've never dared to spend that kind of money on something I'm going to burn away no matter how gorgeous it smells! You're so lucky to have got one for Christmas!

  4. I adore Fig scented products, this sounds like a lovely candle. Jo Malone candles even smell so good when they're not lit. They are well worth treating yourself every now & then. They come so beautifully packaged too

  5. So pretty and sounds amazing!
