Why are Jo Malone candles so expensive?

A candle that is made by Jo Malone uses the finest quality ingredients, these include fragrance oils and luxurious waxes such as soy. Jo Malone candles are made with high attention to detail, each wick is hand-straightened and selected from a total of 400 different linen\cotton wick types. Also, the glass is hand-cut and etched. This makes Jo Malone candles some of the best quality candles on the market.

Not only this but Jo Malone candles unlike many of the other big brand candles such as Bath And Body Works and Yankee Candle are handmade by artisans who are masters of the candle-making trade.

Another reason that Jo Malone candles are so expensive is that you are paying for the brand and reputation of making the finest scented candles that provide an amazing scent throw every time.

Yes, Jo Malone candles are really, really expensive when you think that essentially you are just going to burn them, however a lot of work and attention to detail goes into them. Burning one of their candles is a really special moment for anyone who enjoys the soothing and calming benefits of a quality scented candle.

Just check out some of these examples on Amazon and try telling me that their scents don’t sound dreamy.

What waxes does Jo Malone use in their candles?

Jo Malone candles are made with natural waxes such as soy. Soy wax is a type of vegetable wax that is derived from the oil of soybeans.

Soy wax has a lower melting point than other types of wax, which means it can be used in a wider range of temperatures. This makes it ideal for use in candles, as it means the candle can be lit in a range of environments without the risk of the wax melting and dripping.

Soy wax is also environmentally friendly, as it is a renewable resource. It is also biodegradable, meaning it will break down naturally over time.

Jo Malone also states they use a blend of other natural waxes with soy wax. By doing this they create a blended wax that not only provides a better burning experience but also allows the fragrance oils to bind better with the wax. This leads to an unrivaled hot and cold scent throw which generally sends any candle lover into a spin.

Are the fragrances Jo Malone uses expensive?

Jo Malone candles are packed full of the finest quality fragrance oils. These fragrance oils are made from natural ingredients which make for a breath of fresh air as most big candle-making companies opt to skip on some of the manufacturing costs by using low-quality synthetic fragrances.

All of their fragrance oils are expertly combined into layers of wax throughout the candle to make sure the candle is evenly fragranced.

The result of this is a candle that has a strong scent throw that disperses evenly throughout the candle’s burn time.

What about the wicks?

Believe it or not, the humble wick is one of the Jo Malone brand’s secret weapons. They create and manufacture their own wicks in 400 different sizes, thicknesses, and styles.

When they create a new candle scent they thoroughly test which of the wicks works the best to provide scent throw, even burn time, and the perfect flame.

Are Jo Malone candles worth it?

Yes, Jo Malone candles are definitely worth the money. If you are looking for a quality candle that has a luxurious feel, a wonderful scent throw, and is made with natural ingredients then Jo Malone should be your go-to brand.

Their candles may be on the expensive side but their high quality and attention to detail make them worth every penny. Jo Malone candles make for a special and luxurious treat that anyone who loves candles will appreciate.

They really do make the perfect gift or even just a centerpiece in an important room in your home. For me personally, there is nothing like burning a Jo Malone candle whilst I soak away a hard day’s work in a nice, hot bath.
