Scents and Sensibility – Give the Gift of Jo Malone this Christmas

At this time of year, present buying is at the top of the agenda! What to get your loved one can sometimes be challenging…but a fine fragrance often goes down very well.

One of my favourite fragrance brands is Jo Malone. I LOVE the Pomegranate Noir Cologne – a powerful combination of pomegranate, raspberry and plum spiked with pink pepper and laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods.

Introducing…The Jo Malone Collection

The Jo Malone brand encompasses complementary contradictions. The ethos of the Jo Malone brand is of perfectly matched contrasts: the heartiness of lavender with the strength of amber in the classic Jo Malone cologne bearing the name of these notes, the nobility of refinement with the excitement of novelty, the dependability of heritage with the expectancy of innovation.

The beginning

The brainchild of Ms Jo Malone herself, the Jo Malone brand began with a handmade Nutmeg and Ginger bath oil. Already one of London’s most sought-after skin care therapists, Jo Malone’s bath oil was made as a little thank you gift for her happy clients. After one customer ordered 100 bottles to use as party favours at an important dinner, the rest was history. The very first Jo Malone boutique opened its doors in 1994 at 154 Walton Street in the upmarket London borough of Chelsea.

The ethos

The Jo Malone brand has always been about contrast, creativity and individuality. Every scent can be worn as a standalone statement fragrance or layered with other fragrances from the collection to create a truly individual signature perfume for every wearer.


Worn with a spritz of the Vanilla & Anise Cologne, Jo Malone’s Orange Blossom Cologne takes on a sweetly spiced character, yet layered with the rich cedarwood, nutmeg and bergamot of the Vetyver Cologne, the Orange Blossom fragrance becomes deeper, headier and more exotic. How each customer wears their Jo Malone scent is entirely up to them – each cologne can be as unique as the wearer themselves.

The collection

Unusual, natural and customisable fragrance lies at the very heart of the entire Jo Malone collection. From perfume to homeware, every unique scent and product is designed to be deeply indulgent.

Whatever your fragrance of preferences, the Jo Malone range has a beautifully scented treat for everyone. Perhaps your ultimate extravagance would be the Dark Amber & Gin Dry Body Oil, the sumptuous Red Roses Body Crème or the Lime Basil & Mandarin Bath Oil from the bath and body collection. For those who love to bring beauty into their homes, the Jo Malone’s homeware collection features luxurious delights including the Intense Oud & Bergamot Candle and the English Pear & Freesia Scent Surround Room Spray.

The style

Of course the Jo Malone brand would not be what it is without the chic, signature packaging. With its iconic cream box and black grosgrain ribbon, the fragrance house has turned gift-giving and beautiful wrapping back into an art form.

At once both contemporary and classic, the packaging design has garnered cult status amongst Jo Malone lovers and truly defines the brand.

Jo Malone has flourished from a London based boutique into a deeply desirable global brand, delivering quintessential British style to loyal devotees across 28-plus countries worldwide.


This Christmas, Jo Malone promises to continue to delight and seduce those who adore aspirational, indulgent scents that embody style and exude substance.
