I Love Jo Malone
 

Quintessentially British.  A statement of luxury.  Indulgent and Evocative.  

Jo Malone is one of those brands that will never disappoint for me and is always guaranteed to raise a smile, whether it's from the recipicant of a gift I've given or from me, myself.  The ritual of unwrapping the product alone is a delight; from the chic, signature cream and black rope handled bag (tied with grosgrain ribbon) to the scented tissue, the 'keep forever' boxes and (if you buy a candle) the best matches you've ever tried.  The boutiques are gorgeous, the consultants are consistently brilliant and never pushy and the whole experience feels relaxed yet stimulating.  My favourite boutique is the newly opened Regent Street branch, which feels magical offering a calm oasis, impressive when it's positioned on one of the UK's busiest streets.  Exclusive to a few of  Jo Malone's special stores, Regent Street offers bespoke services including engraving on colognes & candles and a limited archive collection of discontinued fragrances.

The brand was founded by Jo Malone herself in 1983 and then was sold to the Estee Lauder Group in 1999.  I personally discovered around 2007 on shopping trip to Princes Square in Glasgow with my mum.  We went into the newly-opened boutique and I was instantly overwhelmed.  The products were beautiful in their simplicity and the boutique was a fine example of great retail.  I bought the Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne, their signature fragrance, and from there my love blossomed!

 

My Favourite Jo Malone Products

 

Over the years I've tried several fragrances and several products from this wonderful brand and have therefore curated my own edit of top picks from their range.  

 

Cologne

  Orange Blossom Cologne £88.00 100ml    Orange Blossom is my go-to summer fragrance.  It's a warm, citrusy scent with a floral over note that seems to come to life on warm, summer days.

  White Jasmine & Mint Cologne £88.00 100ml    If I were to describe this fragrance in one word it would be 'pretty'.  I tend to wear this in the autumn and winter months for it's light, and uplifting scent.

Bath and Body

  Red Roses Bath Oil £58.00 200ml.    This is the first bath oil I used from Jo Malone and I go back to it time and time again.  It leaves my whole apartment smelling of roses and the richness of the product has the most wonderful moisturising effect.

  Grapefruit Body Creme £52.00 175ml    I have to admit this is pricey but a tub of this lasts me at least a year when used after my red roses bath.  Jo Malone's " fragrance combining philosophy " is at it's best when you use the grapefruit lotion on top of the red roses fragrance.

  Lime Basil & Mandarin Shower Oil £32.00 250ml    A reasonably new addition to the bath and body collection, the shower oil gives you the luxurious treatment with the convenience and speed of a shower.  I love using this before an evening out, especially when combined with my orange blossom cologne.

For the Home

  Pomegranate Noir Deluxe Candle £120.00    I discovered pomegranate noir when I worked at Harrods and for me, it's the scent of Christmas.  I'm a fan of the deluxe version, admittedly pricey but it provides 90 hours of burning time and lasts all through December.

 Basil and Neroli Home Candle £44.00   I'm a huge fan of candles in the living room all year round and this is the perfectly relaxing fragrance for that part of the home.  Not too feminine, not too soapy and burns really gently, lasting 45 hours.
