The pursuit of...Jo Malone

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday and Happy 1st March!

I have been having a right old spring clean today...changing my bedding, dusting (yes, dusting..with a feather duster!), mopping, washing...spring is fast approaching and
it was such a bright and sunny day today to welcome the new month.  I love Sundays like this.

Yesterday, I went to a Jo Malone event launching their new collection 'Rock the Ages' and I thought I'd share some of the photos with you.

My friend and I went to Fenwicks in Brent Cross where we had a 11,30 appointment to be taken through the new collection and have a gorgeous hand and arm massage.

Greeted with a lovely glass of bubbly with the signature Jo Malone bow on the stem - how chic!
The new collection of 5 colognes which are inspired by british heritage are:

  • Tudor Rose & Amber
  • Lily of the Valley & Ivy
  • Pomegranate Noir
  • Geranium & Verbana
  • Birch & Black Pepper
Each lid of the cologne has a distinctive material to represent that era.  See the collection here for more details.

The 'Rock the Ages' cologne collection
I have always wanted a Jo Malone fragrance or candle.  It's a very luxurious brand with an excellent reputation and we were lucky enough to be taken through a very bespoke one-to-one service yesterday to find our perfect scent.

Decisions, decisions....

My black & white outfit from Zara matched the Jo Malone interiors!

Tudor Rose & Amber from the new collection - a sensual and rich fragrance

As mentioned before on my blog, I love the scent of roses and the Jo Malone 'Red Roses' fragrance is divine! I had this massaged on one arm with the body creme to match and build up the scent.  It lasted all day!
However, I wanted to purchase something that was more unique to Jo Malone as I could get a rose fragrance anywhere.
In the end after much sniffing, helped by our lovely Jo Malone associate, I decided to buy the Earl Grey and Cucumber scent and the classic Pomegranate Noir candle.

We got a little carried away!...

After our session we were each given a little complimentary gift of the English Pear & Freesia cologne.
Such beautiful packaging...perfect for gifting....(Mother's day is on the way!!)

My purchases, the gorgeous Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne and the Pomegranate Noir Candle

I loooove these chic black matchsticks that come with the candles.....Fabulous!

I seriously think that I might be addicted to Jo Malone now.  I already have my eye on one of their candles called Peony & Blush Suede - simply divine!

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend - I've got some photo's of the Burberry womenswear AW15 show that I took at their event at Regent Street on Monday where they had a live screening,
Will update and share with you all very soon.

Till then,

Love Ivy George x
