Every second Sunday, I try and make a ritual out of nostalgic laziness- sleep ins, reading by the fireplace (in winter), breakfast in bed or not changing out of my pyjamas till midday. Sundays are my rest day – a day where I do not live by the clock, nor do I set any expectations. They are my bliss. My sanity’s lifeline. My sanctuary of sorts. Everybody needs a sunday!
Luckily, I am not the only one who believes this; thanks to Jo Malone’s new range of candles, aptly titled, Just Like Sunday, you can now be transported to a feeling of calm, sunshine and tranquility. An idealism of childhood memories, that see you embracing your inner sloth, and taking time out for yourself for a change. This is, by far, my favourite range – a range that I am probably going to start hoarding this month – we all know I have a deep-seeded obsession with this British brand.
If you are in need of a little sunshine in your life, breathe a little lighter with the Jo Malone ‘Green Tomato Leaf’ Candle. Surreptitiously evocative, yet toned down with earthy and crisp tones, this lively scent has all your senses on alert, wondering what it will next throw at you. It is full of sunshine and tang, but that being said, it is calming and nonchalant, and will have you relaxing by your fireplace/ in the kitchen / in your crisp sheets, or wherever you light it – it truly is a must have for any season.
I was gifted the Jo Malone Green Tomato Leaf candle, but actually purchased the Lavender & Lovage, and too have been blown away with it. Laced with a deep herbaceous scent, this concoction of nasal nirvana is clean and relaxing, and has been in overuse this past 2 weeks (and I have depressingly, almost run out of it – I am an obsessive re-lighter).
On another note, I need a new cologne! I am thinking, Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud or Jo Malone Iris & White Musk. Anyone keen to help me decide? Jo Malone makes the most delicate, yet alluring colognes – I could literally purchase them all!
