For several years now, Jo Malone has worked with charities to create scented gardens as both refuge and resource and to tap into the therapeutic powers of gardening (I will remind Mr BBB of that next time complains about cutting the grass) for those who will benefit from it, such as the homeless, disabled or those with mental health conditions. And if you think it’s all about wafting through flowers practising mindfulness, it’s really not. The fourth garden, The Castle Park Physic Garden opens in Bristol in June with the homeless charity, St. Mungos, and enables clients to work towards horticultural qualifications.
The Jo Malone White Lilac & Rhubarb Charity Candle is an instant win if you love the scent of rhubarb – it’s not so rhubarby that it smells of sweets, and merged with lilac, it becomes softer somehow, but you still know it’s rhubarb! If you love that classically British note, you won’t be disappointed with this.
Anyway, all this goes to letting you know that that it’s £42 and the full proceeds (minus VAT) go to the Jo Malone charity garden partners. You might be interested to know that everyone who works for Jo Malone volunteers at the gardens so they’re very invested in these gardens as a long term project. Currently, there are Jo Malone gardens in London, New York, Edinburgh and soon to be Bristol.
The Jo Malone White Lilac & Rhubarb Charity Candle will be launching spring time but I’ll update as soon as I know the exact timings.
