This week I had the delightful experience of attending Jo Malone #HappyKissmas Press Event, held in a Mistletoe filled room in the Library of The Dylan Hotel.
The room was completely decked out in Mistletoe green and filled with Jo Malone Christmas scents (Roasted Chestnuts and Pine & Eucalyptus), with candles flickering to the beat of a pianist playing Christmas Carols on a Grand Piano.
Christmas in September you ask? Yes, Christmas stock hits stores in October so it’s a necessary evil to hold the press events this early to ensure that they hit magazine deadlines for November and December.
So what can you expect this festive season from Jo Malone fragrances and gifts?
Jo Malone London is celebrating the Christmas party. Imagine a roaring fire and Chestnuts roasting. Candlelight. Mistletoe. Music and laughter. Thoughtful gifts, perfectly wrapped under a Christmas tree. Some of my favourites include:
Start Advent by opening the doors of the home of Jo Malone London for a scented surprise – either a mini fragrance or body crème. This caused a stir on WhatSheWears Facebook and rightly so, as it would be a dream gift for any girl to receive. (€320, in selected stores from November).
Giant Christmas cracker
Open the cracker to discover a Pomegranate Noir Cologne, a Pine & Eucalyptus Candle and a Mimosa & Cardamom Body & Hand Wash.
(£205, available October). There are also small Christmas Crackers (€38) available.
Pine & Eucalyptus
Create that Christmas scent for your dinner party or house party with scented candles (€52), giant Deluxe candles (€355), Room Diffusers (€74) or Room Spray (€52). Available October.
Create the scent of Christmas at home with everything from Roasted Chestnut Deluxe Candles to Bath Salts. Celebrate the gift of giving with the Limited Edition Pomegranate bottle of perfume (€110) to Christmas Crackers (small, €38) or a Jo Malone Christmas ornament (€28). Available October.
The experience was so nice that I didn’t want to leave – however, the goody bag we all received with a Pomegranate Noir candle made it that bit easier. So, now you know what my house will smell of this Christmas.
