Jo Malone Decorated Home Candles by David Hicks

Jo Malone is all about a clean, elegant, and under-stated aesthetic so I was surprised to see that they were introducing some vibrant patterns to their candles. They’ve just teamed up with interior designer David Hicks (whose daughter, India Hicks, was a bridesmaid at Princess Diana’s wedding and will be covering the up-coming royal wedding), for a limited edition line of candles. Hicks gave three of Jo Malone’s bestsellers a makeover:  Pomegranate Noir, Lime Basil & Mandarin, and Red Roses ($65 each). I’m a fan of all three scents and recently actually spend a good 30 minutes debating whether I should buy Pomegranate Noir or Lime Basil & Mandarin in the 2.5kg size for my mother (I settled on Lime Basil & Mandarin, which I was told is the most popular…figured it would be the safest to get my mom!). I have to say I like the original packaging better than these bright, pop-influenced ones, but if my apartment didn’t have such a “busy” decor I could see some graphic pops like this fitting in well.

How about you? Would you rather get a traditional Jo Malone candle or one of the David Hicks ones?

  1. They’re huge and heavy! Hopefully will last a long time though…looks great on my mom’s dining room table! I made the mistake of buying it on the one very hot day we’ve had in NYC so far though. They seem to sell really well because the ones I initially wanted, grapefruit or eucalyptus, were both sold out.

Do you love it or hate it?
