There are people who hate rose scent and those who love it. And I actually love roses and rose scent! My favourite has to be Jo Malone Red Roses. It reminds me of my childhood and the rose jam my Mum used to make.
I absolutely adore (it was love from the first sniff actually) my Red Roses cologne so I was very happy to receive the Jo Malone Red Roses Travel Candle (£22 for 60G) which is the newest addition to their Red Roses range.

The notes are:
I absolutely love the look of the London Blooms Jo Malone Colognes that are out in March.
The design, inspired by the British Garden, looks amazing, very Spring appropriate, too. They are Limited Edition and retail for £72 / €84 for e 100ml.

It’s Mother’s Day soon and I believe that we all want to get the best presents for our lovely Mums. Since my Mum is indifferent to makeup (she used to wear it in her 2o’s and 30’s but not anymore) and has the skincare she likes I can only get her perfumes or candles since these are the only beauty products that I know she truly likes.

There are 3 candles in the collection:
