Okay, fragrance addicts! You’ll be happy to know that Jo Malone London is coming to Manila in October 2015. They’re opening in Greenbelt 5 and I can’t wait to see what the boutique will look like.
What makes Jo Malone unique is that you can layer their fragrances to create your own signature scent. Their reco: up to three colognes max. You also have to mist the scents all over your body, not your pulse points, to allow the different notes to waft around you.
Everything smells amazing in the bottle, but you really have to try it on your skin before you buy. Fragrances react differently to your body chemistry, so what smells good on a friend may not smell as good on you.
When experimenting with Jo Malone colognes, you have to think of yourself as a “fragrance stylist.” They have over 20+ colognes in their collection (click here to see them all), so you can get creative with the combos you layer on. You can even collect the different scents, so you have a fragrance wardrobe to choose from.
An cool tidbit I learned was that Jo Malone also scented Kate Moss’ wedding. Yes, they do that! Because fragrances can evoke certain feelings and memories, it’s a great way to help you (and those around you) remember special moments. Wondering what Kate’s wedding smelled like? The model-slash-icon chose Jo Malone’s Wild Blue Bell—it includes a mesmerizing mix of vibrant sapphire blooms, lily of the valley, and twists of persimmon. Hehe, so if you want a Kate Moss-esque wedding, make sure you light those candles at your guest’s tables!
I’ve only seen the candles, fragrances, and body crèmes so far. I am in love the packaging (so luxe and awesome as gifts!) and misting on the different scents has certainly been an experience! I’m still trying to find the Jo Malone cologne that’ll work well with my body chemistry (Debbie says you’ll know immediately when it’s the one), so I can’t wait to try more scents when the boutique opens.
Are you excited for the Jo Malone opening? Any idea which scents you’d like to layer on? ♥
