This past weekend I was very much in the Valentine’s Day spirit and decided to splurge a bit on myself. I rode the train over to Westfield shopping centre in Shepherds Bush, I was highly impressed to say the least!
On to my purchase: I originally went in looking for an outfit for an upcoming fashion show… Had no luck with that. So I thought I would swing by Jo Malone London to get a whiff of some scents I’ve been dying to try. Upon walking in you realize this store is just pure luxury! from being greeted with a glass of champagne (super fancy right? or posh as the Brits say) to getting a hand massage, I mean I wanted to hang out in there all day long. I began browsing and to no surprise fell head over heals in love with a few scents (I knew this would happen which is why I’ve avoided going to this store for over a year). I left a proud (but painfully broke) owner of a candle and cologne.
“The essence of autumn. The sensuous freshness of just-ripe pears is wrapped in a bouquet of white freesias, and mellowed by amber, patchouli and woods. Luscious and golden. To uplift, to wind down, or simply to add an air of luxury. Transform the atmosphere with luxury and opulence”- English Pear and Freesia candle
“The essence of charm. Peonies in voluptuous bloom, exquisitely fragile. Flirtatious with the juicy bite of red apple and the opulence of jasmine, rose and gillyflower. Mingling with the sensuality of soft, blush suede. Luxurious and seductive”- Peony and blush suede cologne
I love how both scents are described as “Luxurious” couldn’t of said it better myself! I am totally obsessed with my purchase! I mean don’t we all deserve a gorgeous gift that makes us feel special from time to time? (this is how I validate my sometimes over the top purchases to myself).
Purchasing in the U.S? Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth avenue & Jo Malone store
Until next time my lovelies, – Gwen
You got the BEST scents in there. I think another good one is Wood Sage and Sea Salt, one of their newer scents. Awesome post!
Yes!!! I knew I made good choices! Did not smell that one (do not give me other options, I’m not allowed in that store, lol) thanks for stopping by hun!
I was a big fan of their now retired “Vintage Gardenia”. And since I do not live anywhere near a Jo Malone store (or a place that carries it either), I took advantage of our layover in Dublin last summer to find my new favorite scent. I thought for sure I would walk out with their Roses or even the one you got but I ended up with “Blue Agava and Cacoa”–never would have thought that would be the one. But I adore it!
Ah that layover worked out perfectly for you! Yes I too went in the shop thinking I was going to get something else but walked out with the Peony scent which is strange because I normally don’t like anything floral. But this Blue Agava one sounds interesting, might have to smell that one.
