When I heard the new slogan of luxury fragrance brand Jo Malone - "decorating with scent" - I thought it was genius. After all, we're always talking about colors and furniture and fabrics and entertaining, but none of it matters if the room you and your guests sit in smells like your running shoes, or in my case, two dogs. This is why I always have a scented candle burning before guests come over and have even had people remark on how great my apartment smells. This makes me smile.
So... you can imagine how thrilled I was when I got an email from the fabulous crew at Jo Malone and learned they were partnering with everyone's favorite British paint manufacturer, Farrow & Ball. The two companies are teaming up for a limited edition collection of colored candles, pairing five of Jo Malone's signature scents with five of F&B's classic colors.
I want one in every room of my apartment.
I absolutely love the following promotional images I was sent. They're like mini-inspiration boards; they combine the candle, the ingredients of the scent, the paint color, a complimentary F&B wallpaper, and complimentary paint colors for decorating a space.
