What you must have: Jo Malone's « Blackberry & Bay » Candle designed by Michael Angove

 

There never ceases to be something deeply satisfying about heading home with a signature cream and black bag in tow. It's amazing, really, that such a global brand can still inspire a feeling of somehow being in on a secret, of being someone in the know. Suffice to say we were pretty keen to get our hands on the new Jo Malone/Michael Angove limited edition collection. The fine artist, who specialises in highly detailed chinoiserie wallpaper, has created exquisite, bespoke designs for the Brit brand inspired by Blackberry & Bay and Orange Blossom. It looks gorgeous and smells divine too. The collection goes on sale at jomalone.co.uk- Blackberry & Bay Candle - 200g - €53 - More information: http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/news/beauty/546141/buy-of-the-day-jo-malone-s-new-limited-edition-collection.html
