In time for Christmas, Jo Malone has boxed sets of six dining candles (£70), all with its grapefruit fragrance. Scented candles, for some reason I’ve never fully explored, more usually come in round containers of various girths and heights. Almost nobody infuses the versions that fit into most candlesticks with scent – except Jo Malone, for the months from October to December. Grapefruit scent was chosen because it has a clean, neutral odour that does not overpower the food.
