Jo Malone perfumes

While in London, a dear friend sent me a shopping SMS, as we do when one of us is travelling and the other one desires something from that location. My friend wanted a particular Jo Malone scent that was only available at SelfrigdesI was more than happy to oblige. After all, who can resist visiting Selfridges, to me the most beautiful department store in Europe?

I have always been intrigued by Jo Malone and didn’t mind have a closer look at her products. I like the minimal design of the logo and the packaging, and also have respect for companies that base their products on natural ingredients. Even better when they name their products with the actual names of the ingredients, so we consumers can easily select the products we might enjoy and also remember their names!
 
After the shop assistant had me smell a range of scent that I didn’t enjoy, I had a go myself and first picked Orange blossom. Divine! Then I had a sniff at White jasmine & mint and I was hooked. But which one should I get? Now the shop assistant showed great initiative and suggested I layered the two scents. Naturally, I have heard about this layering business, but never done it myself, as my own prefumes are too rich to layer on top of each other.
 
Layering these cleaner scents were another business, though. The result was one of the best scent I have ever had! It reminds me of Byredo’s Gypsy Water, only more citrusy.
 
Off I walked out of Selfridge’s with my friend’s scent in addition to two of my own – and a couple of samples for my handbag. That sales girl sure knew how to sell.

  • Sweet lemon sounds amazing! Citrus is probably my favorite scent ever! Looks like a London shopping trip is in order.

      Hi Shannon! The scent is just delicous, without being too sweet! London is one of my favourite cities both to explore and shop. When I lived in Edinburgh I used to visit London every other month for work, and I still couldn’t get enough of it! 😉

  • I’ve always heard such great things about these perfumes but I’ve never tried them. Which one is your favorite?

    • Hi Molly! Thanks for your comment. Though I have been fascinated by Jo Malone for years, this was the first time I had sampled the scents. I got about halfway through before I found the two scents that I loved. If I have to pick a favourite, it would have to be Orange blossom. It is divine! My friend, who likes sweeter scents, had me get her Sweet lemon.

      On another note, I see that you and your sister post book reviews on your blog. How popular are these amongst your readers? I love to read and also post book reviews, but I feel they don’t generate much interest. I’d love to hear your opinion on this!
