This is a good one! I am obsessed with candles and also peonies so when I found out what this year’s charity candle from Jo Malone London is, I was very happy and excited indeed!! Here’s the very gorgeous Jo Malone Peony and Moss Charity Candle for 2016.
Jo Malone Peony and Moss Charity Candle Notes
Jo Malone call it ‘verdant and delicate’ and I love the softness of the floral contrasted with the earthiness of the moss. It’s a great combination. The top note is a crisp cassis one which then opens up to the wonderful peony and the warm base of moss.
So the idea behind the charity candles is that as each one is sold a donation equivalent to 75% of the retail price is donated to Jo Malone London’s charity partners. With these projects, the focus is the support of people living with mental ill health the cultivation and care of therapeutic gardens around the world.
These gardens, dotted all over, represent a place of calm and recovery and are a safe haven. The latest project in London is in partnership with St Mungo’s. They will receive 56% of the funds raised and the rest will be split between other therapeutic gardens for ongoing maintenance.
This would make a perfect gift because it is so pretty and Jo Malone packaging is always such at treat itself.
The Jo Malone Peony and Moss Charity Candle will be available from July 2016 and costs £44. Find Jo Malone HERE.
