Q. I have no sense of smell whatsoever and need to know what to buy in terms of candles, room fragrances, bath oils etc. I want something light and floral. I’ve read info on Jo Malone’s Lime Blossom; can you recommend anything else? I’m a ‘young-ish’ 53.
A. Oh, gosh, a tough one. We suggest that if you really can’t smell, you work your way through a ‘selection pack’ of NEOM’s bath oils, and ask those you share a home with what they think. Then you can invest in the larger size. We’re certainly HUGE fans of NEOM’s candles: without exception, we love the lot.

(But as you don’t have a sense of smell, do be extra-cautious about leaving lit candles in an unattended room, as you may not be alerted in the unlikely event that they catch anything alight.) And yes, as a PS: that Jo Malone fragrance is divine,
