Episode Three: Ew Hadda What? (Plus Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir Home Candle)

Ohhh my goooosh, I am so sorry guys! I came down with an ear infection and I had massive pain and pressure in my sinuses - I couldn't smell. So I couldn't do the reviews and recommendations that I wanted to do.

What a terrible way to start things off, so I am going to try to make it up to you with a mini-review on a home scent. This is a scent available year-round, no seasonal scents here, oh no! It is one of my favorites and one that I burn when I need a pick-me-up or want to set a sexy mood.

Pomegranate Noir - Jo Malone Home Candle

Pomegranate Noir is one of my favorite scents from Jo Malone. I could easily do an entire review and tell you why I love it (let me know if you'd like that in the comments). The scent is nicely fruity but deeply sensual at the same time. Not a fresh scent in the slightest! The candle is true to the cologne and is an excellent choice for creating an inviting, romantic atmosphere.
Cold, the candle is very strong. You can easily fragrance a small room without lighting the candle at all. In fact, unless I want a very strong scent, I usually leave the candle unlit. The cold throw is enough to lightly scent my moderate-sized bedroom.
Lit, the candle has a huge throw. This scent is going to quickly fill any room it can reach, and if you are burning in an enclosed area, you'll find that the room is filled with scent before the full melt pool is created. Burn time on these candles is estimated at 45 hours, and I have yet to finish a full JM candle, so I cannot speak to that. However, I can say that the quality is high, and with Pomegranate Noir there is no need to burn for hours on end to get the scent, so you will get your money's worth.
I highly recommend the Jo Malone candles as a home luxury, and I think Pomegranate Noir is one that you simply can't go wrong with. It is definitely an "evening" scent, although I don't subscribe to those rules, whoops. I cannot, however, imagine myself burning this to scent my home on a hot summer day. I think in that situation it would be too heavy. But give me those hot summer nights, whoo boy. You've found a perfect scent. Buy it here.

Some more stuff...

The lack of updates on schedule will not affect upcoming posts, but life might. The schedule is just a guideline, subject to change at any time. I will forewarn you that next week's review on the indie company Debaucherous Bath might not happen. So, be ready for something different! I hope this mini review suited, and as I get swamped I might have to do this type of post once in a while. So until next time, pleasant journeys~
