This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the team at Jo Malone London say they’re proud to be doing their bit to support mental wellbeing today and every day. One in four people will be affected by mental health issues in their lifetime and it’s time to help break the taboo that still surrounds the topic.
The work Jo Malone London does is supported through the sales of the Charity Candle collection in a selection of garden-inspired fragrances. For each Charity Home Candle sold in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, Jo Malone Limited will donate 75% of the RRP (less VAT) to support individuals and families affected by mental health problems through dedicated projects with inspirational charities.
