Jo Malone London Christmas is always a time full of surprises and sparkles. If you follow the blog, you know that this is one of my favorite perfume brands for which I often fall in love ! The British know how to celebrate Christmas with an even more magical twist – and Jo Malone is no exception : sumptuous packagings, crackers to put on holiday tables, ornaments to hang in the tree,…In short, everything is done to make us succumb and I must say that the packagings of this year are to fall ! It’s glittery, elegant, magical : in short, I’m a fan. Let’s go over the compositions of this year together.
Jo Malone London Christmas : The Colognes
Like every year, Jo Malone London surprises us with its fragrances – all the more so in these limited editions. The brand has two Colognes in limited edition : Orange Bitters and White Moss & Snowdrop (96£ the 100ml).
Orange Bitters is a fragrance that was released the first time in 2016 during their Merry Mischief campaign that you can find in this article. We are in a warm cocktail with Orange Bitters. This fragrance combines sweet orange mixed with a burst of ripe mandarin in top notes, bitter orange in heart notes and sandalwood and amber in base notes for a sensual touch. This perfume breathes definitively the month of December and Christmas : the oranges, the spices and this warm touch of the Christmas markets.
White Moss & Snowdrop is a new creation that dives us into an enchanting landscape with immaculate snow. This creation is made of contrasts. We have the snowdrop petals peeking through powdery snow and the freshness of the moss, pearled with drops of water that become iridescent under the winter sun. Greeting forest-fresh moss, iridescent under winter sunlight. A warm touch of golden amber, topped with a luminous burst of cardamom.
Each of these limited editions is also available in candles : Orange Bitters in a 200g format (47£) and White Moss & Snowdrop in a 600g format (126£).
As every year, Jo Malone London invites the forests in our homes with its Pine & Eucalyptus collection in the form of a diffuser (62£), a candle (47£) and a room spray (46£).
Jo Malone London Christmas : the gift sets
Jo Malone takes advent calendars very seriously and the brand is always great creating them. Admittedly, its price is not affordable for all budgets but it offers a nice selection of miniatures that has something to punctuate our all year ! Bonus of 2018 ? The presence of candles in mini format in the calendar.
The brand offers several gift sets to slide under the tree :
- Body Crème Collection (63£) : with three body creams in travel size. The fragrances that compose it are Grapefruit, Wild Bluebell and English Pear & Freesia.
- Woody Gift Set (109£) : which combines the Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne and the Black Cedarwood & Juniper Body & Hand Wash.
- Citrus Gift Set (62£) : combines English Oak & Hazelnut Cologne with Basil & Neroli Body & Hand Wash.
- Pomegranate Noir Collection (83£) : contains three versions of this perfume : 30ml Cologne, Body and Hand Wash and body cream in travel size.
- Miniature Candles Collection (66£): consists of five scented candles in travel size. The scents are the refreshing Grapefruit, the evocative Green Tomato Leaf, the warm Sweet Almond & Macaroon, the festive Frosted Cherry & Clove and the seductive Peony & Blush Suede. This composition is a true delight because it offers the opportunity to enjoy candles that are not in the permanent collection.
- Christmas Miniatures Soap Collection (36£) : offers a perfect duo for bath time. English Pear & Freesia and Blackberry & Bay team up for a fruity and juicy symphony. A nice gift idea for your guests…or for yourself!
- Cologne Intense Collection (88£) : if you want to explore the Intenses Colognes of the brand, this box is for you. It contains five deeply rich and sensual scents : the sensual Tuberose Angelica, the new Jasmine Sambac & Marigold, the timeless Velvet Rose & Oud, the warm Myrrh & Tonka and the aromatic Oud & Bergamot.
Depending on the shops, you can find other variations of gift boxes or, if you want to make a great gift, Jo Malone London offers a huge cracker over 200£ purchase to present your gifts.
Jo Malone London Christmas : crackers & stockings
The English and Americans are fans of crackers on holiday tables and Christmas stockings (socks usually hung on the fireplace) to fill with small presents. Jo Malone does not fail to innovate with its crackers or ornaments to hang in the tree !
