Jo Malone / The Ultimate Gift whatever the occasion
I have been a fan of Jo Malone since it first hit the market in ‘94. The packaging instantly struck a chord with me - beautifully understated and indulgent. My eye is like a ‘heat-seeking *luxury* missile - I can scan the Selfridges beauty hall like WonderWoman, selecting and dismissing in Formula1 split-seconds.
Its exactly the gift I want to give and ‘be’ given. The beautiful packaging, grosgrain ribbon is everything you need to walk straight from store to birthday, bridal/baby shower, Christmas…and of course Mother’s Day.
I religiously buy it as a gift, but have never bought it for myself. Yes I am one of those you see spritzing generously and lashing it on at the JoMalone counter. When TheMiniOne was born, a friend, a fabulous friend bestowed upon me me a big beautiful gift box full of Jo Malone goodies.
I was totally blown away with excitement! I defy anyone not to be when presented with a box over-flowing with Jo Malone products. She had chosen my favourite scent; the signature Jo Malone ‘Lime, Basil, Mandarin’ Sophisticatedly masculine yet modernly feminine.
The Body Creme in whatever scent you prefer is the ultimate in personal indulgence. Totally luscious and luxurious.
Gentlemen! Take note: it really is a wonderful gift to receive.
I recently experienced the Jo Malone ‘Birthday Treat’ - champagne and a luxurious arm and hand massage. You can also bring a friend so I brought my Mum along. We had a wonderful time with the girls in the Canary Wharf boutique. TheMiniOne was along for the ride too, and they treated her like a Queen. Bestowing upon her miniature carrier bags with little samples inside. Which, she proceeded to parade around the store like a pro-luxury carrier bag shopper on Bond Street.
Its the little things in life that make people happy, so if these can be injected with a little luxury then you have magic fairy gold dust. So for Mothers Day all I want is simple: to soak in a bath filled with Jo Malone Bath Oil. Happy Momma.
