As someone who loves fragrance, I’ve collected quite a number of beautiful scents from the iconic Jo Malone London. Introducing their Hair Mists and why I always love the limited-edition releases.
WHERE MY LOVE OF JO MALONE LONDON BEGAN
Jo Malone London and I began our love affair a couple of years ago when I was kindly invited to come in for a fragrance lesson and hand massage treatment. It was an introduction to a luxurious brand that I have loved ever since. Their unique approach to creating fragrances, designed to stand alone or be combined stood out to me. In a time of celeb fragrance launches (when will they stop!), Jo Malone London continues to deliver superior quality fragrances with some unusual combinations. Not only in their colognes, but across beautiful candles, room sprays, body products and now hair mists, Jo Malone London are pure luxury.
As with anyone, I have my favourite scents but they continually push the envelope and come out with new ideas, which impresses me to no end.
JO MALONE LONDON HAIR MISTS
This year, I’ve fallen for a few of their limited releases and new additions. The first is the introduction of hair mists. I was kindly given one of the Orange Blossom Hair Mists. I’d had a mini size of the citrus-floral fragrance and loved it, so naturally, the hair mist felt like the perfect addition. It quickly became a staple in my handbag to spritz, the scent reminding me of Seville. Jo Malone London is releasing two new Hair Mists this month, in the classic English Pear & Freesia as well as Wild Bluebell. The formula is lightweight with Argan Oil and Pro-Vitamin B for healthy shine and added nourishment.
Perfect as a gift, or a treat for yourself and your hair, I love these mists! Actually, I think I have now given as a gift about four bottles of English Pear and Freesia Cologne to friends and family. It is one of those scents which everyone loves. I don’t think I’ve tried the light floral Wild Bluebell scent before, so I’ll have to give it a go soon.
You can shop them online on the Jo Malone London website, at Mecca Maxima or David Jones. (David Jones in the Perth CBD store is where I had the hand massage. And I tell you what if you can book in for one, do it!! Such a lovely thing to do!).
JO MALONE LONDON ALTERNATIVE FRAGRANCES
As I said, Jo Malone London is super creative with their scents. One thing I love is that they release limited edition scents each year, this year I have fallen for the Willow & Amber Cologne and Cade & Cedarwood Cologne. These were part of a Wild Flowers and Weeds collection, inspired by the unruly weeds and wildly-wonderful plants and flowers that line the banks of a winding river. How lovely is that? It conjures up moments of my childhood spent outside reading books and lazily picking flowers. Very Alice in Wonderland too! Can we go back to those days, please?
Given my love for woody, spicy scents, I loved these two instantly.
The Willow & Amber Cologne is a woody pairing of cashmere wood and smoky vetiver, enhanced by softly sensual amber. The pink pepper and willow combination reminds me of days spent climbing the peppercorn tree and willow trees at a friends place. While the Cade & Cedarwood Cologne reminds me of days camping, with the smoldering embers of a campfire. Basking in the warm and comforting glow of cade – its smoky scent mingled with cedarwood and complemented by a mouth-watering hint of sensual vanilla. So so beautiful!! You can even combine them to create a new scent.
SMALLER FOCUSED BEAUTY BLOG POSTS
Have you tried Jo Malone London? Got a favourite scent? Please let me know which one it is! Everyone has something different that they are drawn to, so I would love to learn which is yours.
Let me know what you think of my sharing smaller beauty blog posts. Concentrating the focus on one brand or a few products I’ve been loving. In the past, I’ve put a lot of products into bigger beauty posts but I’d like to create more focused smaller posts from now on. It gives me a chance to really talk about why I connect with a beauty brand and my experiences with their range. Looking forward to sharing more and hearing your thoughts.
