I showed you a little sneak peek of this in this beauty news video, but this definitely deserves a lot more attention than that! Here’s the lowdown on the absolutely beautiful (in every way) Jo Malone White Lilac & Rhubarb Charity Candle. If you saw that video, you’ll know how much I love it!
So as a little bit of background, you may or may not know that Jo Malone London does a lot of charity work with public gardens. The work focuses on supporting vulnerable communities in various cities around the country with the aim of improving the lives of those living in deprived situations.
Jo Malone London recognises that if individuals are suffering with mental ill health, poverty or disability, they often becomes isolated which only serves to make the situation worse. To address this, Jo Malone has set up a series of charity garden projects, which are supported through the sale of special candles.
The latest one is the Jo Malone White Lilac & Rhubarb Charity Candle – a stunning little ornament with the obvious bonus of heavenly scent!
Jo Malone White Lilac & Rhubarb Charity Candle Notes
“White Lilac & Rhubarb is a daring juxtaposition. Tart and vibrant rhubarb cuts through powdery white lilac and sensual rose. The blooming scent of an early summer garden.”
And oh my is is gorgeous – it’s fresh, sweet and tart all at same time and it is genuinely my favourite candle of the moment. It is so pretty to look at too.
The proceeds made from the candle – which amounts to the full retail price less VAT – will be donated to care for and cultivate existing charity gardens across the UK in London, Edinburgh, Bristol and Liverpool. They will also go towards a new community garden in Manchester in partnership with the Whitworth Art Gallery, working alongside adults living with mental ill health.
Jo Malone White Lilac & Rhubarb Charity Candle launches May 2015 and costs £42. Remember full proceeds will be used to support the brands charity gardens nationwide. Find Jo Malone London HERE.
