Here are my latest discoveries, with two of them being candles. Please bare with me as I am trying to describe the scents in more ways than just “I love it so much” . After all, I am no Tania Sanchez or Luca Turin.
Jo Loves kindly sent me 2 ml samples of their fragrances when they’ve just launched, and, as you would expect, they are divine.
I would love to have this fragrance, as well now. It is light and fresh rose scent, and I think that a lot of people would enjoy it. It is simple, elegant and not overwhelming, just like all Jo’s creations. The lemon leaves bring a touch of zest-ines (I know it’s not even a word) and balances the rose well. I have a small candle but it throws enough fragrance to fill in even a
The best thing about all the Christmas collections is the amount of the amazing candle sets that are available for a good price. This year I am loving the sets from Jo Malone, Malin+Goetz and Diptyque.
Malin + Goetz The Votive Collection Six-Piece Set, $100 from Saks
Jo Malone London Five-Piece Miniature Candle Set, $100 from Saks
And I actually think that this is my favourite one.
I’d say – this is a very unisex scent. In fact, I have asked three male friends of different age and style about their opinion, and they all loved the scent, too. Actually, this is how I’d like my man to smell!
Malin & Goetz describe it as “a modern interpretation of the legendary, aromatic classic; a clean, fresh and comfortable scent. It is clean and fresh”, but I also find it sexy and masculine (not aggressively masculine, if you know what I mean, but just spot-on) at the same time. Maybe I have smelled too many vetiver based men’s colognes?
- Top notes:
I have already reviewed Malin + Goetz Cannabis candle and promised a feature about two other scents that I have. And this time I will just write about the scent alone, since I have already mentioned all the details about the candle itself, which you can read by clicking the link.
So today I want to share about Dark Rum, which I thought would be my favourite (when I read the description on-line), and I was right! This scent is just divine, one of the best I have ever smelled. It is warm, rich, and sexy. It may sound very cliché, but it is how I think about it. Plus I would definitely wear a
Today I want to tell you about my newest obsession, in terms of beauty, Malin + Goetz candles. I will start with Cannabis, which is a bestseller.
As usual with the brand, you get a chic, modern and clean design (see it here) of everything from the packaging to the candle itself. It [the candle] is placed in a clear glass with a logo on it.
According to Malin + Goetz , their candles are made from the “earth-friendly, natural blend of beeswax, vegetable and soy waxes.” From my experience I can tell that they have a clean burn.
What about the Cannabis candle?
Top notes: fresh lemon and orange, middle notes: fig and pepper, base: oakmoss, sandlewood and amber-patchouli.
And, oh my goodness, it is amazing! No wonder, that it’s a
