Jo Malone Sweet Almond & Macaroon Scented Candle

26th November 2016

I was lucky enough to be given this candle as a get well soon gift, but fell in love with the scent so much I felt it deserved it’s own post on my blog.

The fragrance is called Sweet Almond & Macaroon and it’s delicious, every time I smell it I’m transported back to Paris. Whilst the scent is very sweet, it’s delicate and not sickly. This is one of those scented candles which completely fills the room with fragrance.


This candle was such a lovely gift to receive as it feels so luxurious, inside the ribboned box besides the candle are long matches which are perfect for candles and matte black in colour.


I’m now completely addicted to this scent and wish Jo Malone had other products with the same scent so I could fill my house with it. I celebrated my bedroom being finished by lighting this and it totally lifted my spirits whilst ill.


This was initially a Christmas scent but was brought into the permanent range through popular demand.

What’s your favourite Jo Malone scent?

    Ooh this sounds lush. I usually find a lot of Jo Malone’s scents too overpowering but this one sounds a winner

      It’s subtle enough to not be sickly but fills the room so is ideal in that sense.

      I’m addicted, I use the Method polish which is almond scented and can’t stop sniffing it. I should add it’s natural so I’m not solvent abusing haha!

    I have been looking at this candle as well as the peony and blush suede but couldn’t decide which one to get as I’m not able to go into a store and test the scent. I was worried that this one would be sickly but you have confirmed it’s not and it sounds so lovely! Gemma x

    Sweet almond and macaroon just sounds so good. I can only imagine how nice it smells. Finding the right candles can be tough sometimes, because their scents can be really strong and weird sometimes. Thanks for sharing your love for this one. Definitely looking into it 🙂
