Jo Malone London is a British Fragrance house renowned for its beautiful scents, candles, creams, soaps and more. Ever since the first store opening on Molten Street, London, Jo Malone now has 40 branches worldwide. Recently I was invited to it’s latest store opening in Bahrain at the Bahrain City Center for a private one on one to meet the team, learn more about the brand and discover my very own signature scent. What a lovely morning it was, spending it at the store with scents that awaken every cell in your body. I am very familiar with Jo Malone and being half English am proud to see this British boutique in our region.
After chatting with the very sweet Debbie and Sylvie, I got to experiment at the fragrance bar to narrow down my preferences. Each scent is crafted to be worn alone or layered using Fragrance Combining; a way to tailor scent to create your signature. A personal statement. It’s so great to see brands embracing our eastern jewel ‘the oud’ and using it in their fragrances but it was Jo Malone who was one of the first perfumeries to experiment with Oud and have an exquisite line of different Oud scents. Once I picked my 3 preferences, which was so hard to do as I kept changing my mind and loving everyone one I took a whiff of, we then went to the massage bar where I was given a luxurious hand massage combining the scents. The mixture was amazing if I must say so myself!!! I seriously couldn’t stop smelling my wrists and hands. The scent I created was Oud Bergamot mixed with No. 154 combined with Amber & Lavender body lotion! It really goes to show you how you can create your own unique personal scent just by the using the method of layering.
