It’s such a special part of the beauty calendar when the Jo Malone charity candle launches and this year’s one is so beautiful! Here’s a little look at the gorgeous Jo Malone London Iris & Lady Moore Charity Candle with details of how the proceeds help those suffering mental illness and disadvantage.
For 2017, Jo Malone London has chosen the fresh and powdery Iris & Lady Moore scent for their fund-raising candle. It is a beautiful scent and comes packaged in a stunning design. I really love this scent as a candle. It has a very comforting, smooth scent pay-off from the powdery iris that contrasts nicely with the green freshness of geranium and the earthy egde of Vetiver.
Jo Malone Charity Candle 2017 Donations
For every candle sold, Jo Malone London will make a donation directly to their charity partners equal to 75% of the retail price (less VAT). These charities support their garden projects of which the focus is the support of people living with mental ill health through the cultivation and care of therapeutic gardens. Each garden is a place to recover, grow and reconnect with a community. A peaceful, safe haven for rehabilitation.
The gardens represent a place of calm and recovery and are a safe haven. This year’s project and the newest one in the portfolio is in Notting Hill, London and in partnership with St Mungo’s charity. The Notting Hill garden is set to open Summer 2017 and will run along side the existing charity gardens:
- The Old English Garden, Battersea Park, London
- Redhall Walled Garden, Edinburgh
- Kirkdale Country Garden, Liverpool
- The Castle Park Physic Garden, Bristol
- The Art Garden, The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester
The Jo Malone Charity Candle 2017, Iris & Lady Moore (£46) is available now HERE. It’s a fabulous candle with a great scent so well worth the pennies.
