I love to burn candles, but I often find myself in a candle rut because once I like a certain scent, I tend to burn it all the time and not venture into trying any other scents. I’m sort of a creature of habit that way. If you do this too and are looking for a great new candle to shake things up, I suggest Jo Malone’s Sweet Lime & Cedar.
Those of you who are familiar with Jo Malone know that her scents are always unique and this one is no different. With top notes including Kaffir Lime, Blood Orange, Spearmint and Pink Pepper and base notes of Tonka Bean, Amber, and Tamarind, it’s a Thai-influenced scent that is totally different from any other I’ve ever smelled before. The lime really stands out when you burn it, but you can also smell the jasmine and coconut. It’s very hard to describe, but my best adjective would probably be “zesty.” It’s a cheerful, uplifting scent; I like to burn it when I’m trying to get some work done because it’s the kind of scent that keeps you happy and smiling. It’s also one of those candles that will scent more than one room, making it cost-effective. (When I burn it in my living room, I can smell it just as strongly in my bedroom). And if you like the scent as much as I do, you’ll be excited to learn that you can also get it in a cologne, shower gel, body creme, and body oil. (I really need to own the shower gel because it would be perfect to get me motivated on those mornings when I just want to crawl back into bed and go back to sleep).
All the products in the Sweet Lime & Cedar scent are available at Jo Malone shops, www.jomalone.com, and select specialty stores (including Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue) nationwide.
