The iconic branded cream box, wrapped in black grosgrain ribbon and the crisp black tissue paper inside that has been spritzed with one of their beautiful scents. This is just one of my favourite parts of shopping at Jo Malone. Known for their elegance and style, Jo Malone is a British brand, specialising in fragrance, candles and beautiful, body products.
I spent such a lovely afternoon at the Brighton store this weekend trying out the products. You are always welcomed by such friendly and professional staff in Jo Malone stores and it really adds to the whole high end, luxury shopping experience. In the middle of the store there is a table displaying samples of each scent for you to try and let me tell you, choosing a favourite is no easy task.
We were seated at the back section of the store which was decorated in the usual monochrome styling that they are so well recognised for. My mum and I were treated to a complimentary glass of British sourced bubbly and a beautiful hand and arm massage testing out a selection of products. The staff are so knowledgeable and it was really interesting to learn about the huge range of scents and ingredients that are available. Even the names of the scents are fabulously decadent – how could anyone be able to resit smelling of Lime Basil & Mandarin, Orange Blossom, or Peony & blush suede?!
Overall we both felt amazing when we left the store with our new goodies. My skin felt soft, pampered and smelled gorgeous. I learned today that using a body cream together with a perfume layered on the top makes such a difference and a much longer lasting scent. You can also mix and match different fragrances to create your own bespoke design as the scents work together rather than clashing.
I chose a body and hand wash in one of Jo Malone’s best selling classic scents Pomegranate Noir. This is the description that can be found on their website for this particular product which is absolutely divine:
Our refreshing Body & Hand Wash with meadow foam seed gently cleanses and deliciously scents your skin with enigmatic Pomegranate Noir. Ruby-rich juices of pomegranate, raspberry and plum are spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. The enhanced formula helps leave body and hands feeling conditioned and soft. Its crystal clear gel transforms into a rich lather and its uplifting fragrance fills the bathroom, immersing you in delicate scent.
