The Craft of Candlemaking

Renowned for their sophisticated range of scents and fragrances, Jo Malone London's range of candles are equally luxurious and stylish. From the thick cylindrical glass, to the chrome plated lid, the elegantly simple label and creamy, scented wax, there's exquisite care and technique behind how each candle is made. 

The process starts with fine fragrance oils that are blended into slowly warmed wax and hand-poured into individual glasses. No fragrances burn in exactly the same way so the waxes are custom blended for a specific scent. 

After the wax settles, the wax is paired with the perfect wick. Jo Malone London has over 400 varieties of lead-free wicks, and each wick is hand-placed into the centre of the still-soft wax. This forms the heart of the candle and draws the liquid wax up through its core. All the wicks are trimmed by hand to ensure absolute balance and a gentle but powerful burn.

Labels are then applied and the glass is polished; and as a final touch, the chrome-plated lid is adorned with the signature black grosgrain ribbon before it is nestled into crisp black tissue paper and placed into the iconic Jo Malone box.
