Home ambiance


Fragrance your home with a luxury candle | Jo Malone, 37 Te Ara Tahuhu Walkway, Britomart

To uplift, to wind down, or simply to add an air of luxury, a candle from Jo Malone is the perfect addition to your home for the winter months. We recommend the Lime Basil & Mandarin Home Candle - it's their signature fragrance. Peppery basil and aromatic white thyme bring an unexpected twist to the scent of limes on a Caribbean breeze.
