M&S Home launches affordable candles to rival Jo Malone

High street favourite launches new 'Library of Scent' home fragrances

M&S Home are following in the fragrant footsteps of Aldi to take on scent supremo Jo Malone.  The new ‘Library of Scent’ range features candles, reed diffusers and room sprays. The new range allows homeowners to fill their home with similar signature scents to that of the luxury fragrance brand, but at affordable prices. The delicious new scents in question are Pomegranate, Petals, Fig and Ginger.

The draw of the new home fragrance range will be the prices. The candles are only £7.50, compared to £45 at Jo Malone.

The Pomegranate range is, to quote Marks & Spencer, ‘an intense floriental fragrance supported by vibrant tart juicy berries and warm exotic spices and amber’. To you and me, that means it smells deliciously fruity.

Pomegranate Noir is one of Jo Malone’s best-selling scents, it’s therefore no surprise that there have been comparisons between the two. The standard ‘Library of Scent’ candle has a 35 hour burn time, compared to 45 hours at Jo Malone – but surely the £37.50 saving is worth it?

The larger candle, complete with charming cloche would make the ideal gift for a loved one. This larger candle has a 45 hour burn time, making it well worth the extra pounds.

Described by Marks and Spencer as a ‘modern and uplifting spicy scent of mingling bright citrus and ginger with fresh and delicate white flowers’, this is the scent to awaken the senses. Citrus scents are ideal for giving homes an uplifting air of spring.
