Several years ago, my friend Mo brought me some Jo Malone lotion. Well, she has definitely created an ongoing obsession for me.
The Nectarine Blossom & Honey scent is amazing. Believe it or not, people frequently stop me to ask what I am wearing. It is floral and very subtle and I just love it! I also use the same fragrance in the lotion. If you decide to indulge in buying some of Jo Malone’s lotion, I recommend the Body & Hand Lotion and not the body cream. For some reason, the cream does not have that perfect scent.
There are a variety of scents to choose from and some really work well together. Their consultants are really great at pairing the scents, and finding just the right fit for you. It is a bit of an investment, but a little goes a long way, and I usually get a nice gift package for my birthday or Christmas. I am a lucky gal!
There are also a great selection of scented candles. Everything is beautifully packaged and they take special care in putting their products in beautiful boxes and containers.
Jo Malone Fragrance For The Home
Jo Malone even has a book that recounts her life called Jo Malone: My Story. She is really quite inspirational and says that “She wants this book to be about the reinvention of yourself, that nothing is wasted in our life, that every single thing that happens in our life can come out for the good to build you”. How great is that?
Since I am in the process of reinventing myself after a long and diverse set of careers, I think this is just the perfect inspo to help me with my blog.
When we were in London last year, I made the pilgrimage to the Jo Malone store on Sloane Street. There’s nothing like going to the source!
Here is a link to a great New York Times article that highlights Ms. Malone’s career path to success:
