Perfect Scents

Jo Malone at Saks
Style Shout Out to Jo Malone for making perfect scents.

Jo Malone began making her signature scents in 1990 when she mixed ginger and nutmeg in her kitchen and hand poured the body oil into bottles to give to her facial clients as a "thank you" for their business. It's been said the Jo Malone company was born when one of her clients ordered one hundred bottles of the body oil to give as gifts at her dinner party.  As a result 86 of those dinner party guests called Malone to order her uniquely blended body oil.

I discovered Jo Malone when her fragrances first hit Neiman Marcus stores.  I immediately fell in love with the Grapefruit which is so crisp and clean.  The Orange Blossom is fruity and smells like SpringTime.  But my new favorite is the English Pear and Freesia.  It is so light and every time I spritz it on I can't help but smile.

Something I find fun about this line is the fact that the fragrances have been created to be combined so you can create your personal scent.  The associates in stores can offer suggestions or you can experiment.  And after all isn't that what style is all about?  Taking inspiration and finding what works for you.

Jo Malone's line also offers products like scented candles, scents for the home, body oils and skin care products.  I have been a fan for years and am sure that once you experience a spritz it will quickly make perfect sense for you too.

My Style Shout Out Tip:  The next time you visit Neiman Marcus, Saks, or Nordstrom have some fun with fragrance and check out Jo Malone.  It makes perfect scents!
