Organic Wednesday – NEOM Candles

Candles.  Oh, how I love candles!  Jonathan Ward, Kenneth Turner and now NEOM, I love them all …  was especially delighted when I found out this week that NEOM are expanding their fragrance library to 12 this March with the addition of two new varieties of candle. Serenity, which has hints of vanilla and sandalwood and about which NEOM say: “For the ultimate piece of […]
