A very festive invitation arrived this month from the lovely team at Jo Malone, promising a sneak peek at this year’s Christmas collection. London is only just starting to feel autumnal, so I hope this doesn’t feel too early (OK, it is a tad…), though I know many of you will be as excited by its arrival next month.
Our setting is the beautiful Jo Malone residence, an elegant Georgian townhouse on London’s Gloucester Place, for a very first glimpse at this year’s dazzling collection.
Fellow magpies, bring on the baubles because this season is about to sparkle..!
Jo Malone is a brand synonymous with gifting, so much so I knew this year’s Christmas collection wouldn’t disappoint.
This year sees the introduction of new limited edition fragrance, White Moss & Snowdrop in both 3-wick candle and 100ml cologne. True to all of Jo’s limited editions, it is presented in beautiful pearlised glass. A perfect gift (to oneself…)
Fans of Christmas past will be pleased to hear that Orange Bitters makes a return, and sweet Ginger Biscuit has also resurfaced from the Jo Malone archives as a cologne this year.
Also returning are the classic Christmas cracker and tree ornament, both filled with miniature favourites.
And the ultimate countdown to Christmas, the signature advent calendar, also joins us for the holidays with a new look and 25 drawers of home and beauty luxuries.
Pomegranate Noir will always be my fragrance for the festive season and both it and (another favourite) English Pear and Freesia have had a sparkly makeover especially. I’m just imagining how beautiful these will look upon my dressing table!
They’ll be available exclusively at John Lewis and Selfridges, respectively.
So there it is. A first look at just some of what to expect from Jo Malone’s 2018 Christmas collection and I, for one, am on best behaviour between now and December 25th.
What is going straight on to your wish list to Father Christmas?
The All That Sparkles Christmas collection is available from October.
