Bathtime Ballads

‘There’s an elegance about Red Roses and that’s what makes it a modern classic,’ says Jo Malone London Girl and musician Karen Elson. When enjoying a relaxing soak, she pairs Red Roses Candles and Red Roses Bath Oil with a moody soundtrack. So, for the full flavour of modern romance, here’s her escapist bathtime playlist…

Wild World by Cat Stevens
‘I love this song so much. In my opinion, Cat Stevens is one of the best songwriters ever. Wild World is a wonderful balance of being sarcastic lyrically but totally beautiful all at once. It’s my go-to track when I want to just let go.’

Song to the Siren by This Mortal Coil
‘This is the most beautiful song and it will transport you elsewhere; it’s kind of otherworldly. It’s a Tim Buckley song, but Elizabeth Fraser (of the Cocteau Twins) sings this version. Her voice is legendary and deserves awards. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to it all the way through without getting emotional. It always seems to make me cry.’

Blue Light by Mazzy Star
‘I find this is such a soothing song. I always gravitate to it when I’m relaxing. It’s so serene and calming – I think it’s divine. It’s one to just close your eyes to and forget about everything.’

Feeling Good by Nina Simone
‘To me, this song just feels righteous. As soon as she sings those first few lines, then hits you with the ‘and I’m feeling good’ – it’s totally glorious. It’s one to play as you’re getting out of the bath and ready to tackle the world again!’
