It all started with an invitation to experience Jo Malone at Amanbagh (a Rajasthani palace hotel close to Jaipur). We were asked to not to bring any toiletries and as I walked into the room, I perfectly understood why. My sprawling marble-clad bathroom (with twin walk-in wardrobes just btw) was adorned with every category of Jo Malone’s portfolio. The next two days, was when I truly fell in love. From larger-than-life installations of every fragrance of theirs, a gigantic JML box greeting us every morning, luxurious spa treatments, a sunrise safari experience and exquisitely planned gourmet meals, my favorite bit still remained going back to my villa and drowning myself in this new world of fragrances I had just discovered.
The JML team walked us through decoding a fragrance, their ideologies and inspirations and finally a concept that was extremely new to me, but I am now absolutely addicted to. Fragrance combining. If you visit any JML store there are fragrance stylists who will introduce you to this concept and follow it up with a luxurious scented hand massage.
From the scents, I am absolutely addicted to Wood Sage & Sea Salt and Peonies & Blush.
I created a little video about my experience, make sure to watch it at the end of this page. The quality isn’t as impressive as it was my very first try at ‘Vlogging’ but wanted to share it with you guys anyways 🙂
The Jo Malone London store is now open in Palladium, Mumbai and will be opening in Delhi shortly.
