This signature began with the brand’s modern classic, Lime Basil & Mandarin. Revolutionary in its time, the use of basil was unusual in the world of perfumery. To this day, each scent is characterised by a sophisticated simplicity with a surprising element. The clarity of Jo Malone London scents means they can be combined with one another to create something individual and unique. Whether it’s Cologne layered on top of another Cologne, over a rich Body Crème or fragrant Bath Oil, the art of Scent Pairing creates a tailored scent, a fragrance adapted to suit a mood or occasion.
The Jo Malone London Creative Studio is based in a Georgian townhouse in the heart of Britain’s capital. Scents are inspired by life in the surrounding city and beyond; British character, culture and history are intrinsic to each and every scent. It might be the adventure of a London Lark captured in Basil & Neroli, or days spent along the windswept cliffs of the English coast encapsulated in Wood Sage & Sea Salt. Each scent has its own story.
The Creative Studio works in uniquely close collaboration with some of the world’s most distinguished Master Perfumers. The process is immersive and the conversation daily, in order to bring stories to life and capture a moment in scent. Jo Malone London fragrances are composed to ensure the true beauty of their ingredients is allowed to shine. Ingredients are used in unexpected and intricate combinations, blending technical innovation and traditional methods.
With its iconic cream and black box, tied with grosgrain ribbon, the brand has become synonymous with gift giving. Always elegant, always appreciated, a gift from Jo Malone London, is a special treat for yourself or someone else, something eagerly awaited or gratefully received with surprise. Jo Malone London stores are designed to house a unique immersive experience with features such as the Tasting Bar where customers can explore ingredients, try layering scents and enjoy a signature Hand & Arm Massage. Every customer is greeted with warmth by a Stylist who then tailors their journey as they discover the World of Jo Malone London. Jo Malone London is a unique combination of timeless elegance, contemporary innovation and a touch of irreverence. This very British character pervades every aspect of the brand.
