Jo Malone: Wisteria and Violet

This past week has been incredibly busy so I am very sorry for my disappearance from the blog world, I would love to be able to be more organised and consistent with my blog. It really bothers me at times, I am working on it I promise!

On Thursday night, last week, I was invited along to a Jo Malone event evening for drinks, nibbles hand massages and to hear a little bit more on the new London Rain collection (here). So I wasn't all by my self I took along my friend C to join me.

The evening was lovely, we were greeted with a glass of champagne as we walked in the store and a very helpful lady took our bags to put away so we could actually move -we did a little shopping before it...oops. Unfortunately apart from one little Instagram picture (here), I didn't manage to get others. I didn't have a camera with me and my phone was nearly out of battery and I didn't want it to die completely!

After nibbling on a few yummy little marshmallow bites and fancy chocolate button type things, we sat down to have a very relaxing hand massage. The girls were very sweet and very knowledgeable about the products, she asked me a few questions before deciding what cream she wanted to use. She settled on Peony and Blush Suede, which I love, so I was very pleased. When she had finished she very lightly sprayed the back of them with a scent from the new collection.

The one she chose was Wisteria and Violet, the purple bottle, not a scent I would have normally gone for but I love it, and with the Peony and Blush Suede it is stunning! It is a gorgeous mix of floral and sweet that just works so well together. She explained that as with all Jo Malone fragrances, the scents are created for you to combine and make your own, unique to you.

The packaging of the new collection is beautiful, maybe one of my favourites. The bottles are the standard classic shape but each one of the four has its own colour and has an ombre effect. As suggested by the name of the collection, each scent is inspired by a type of rain you have Rain and Angelica (blue bottle), Wisteria and Violet (purple bottle), White Jasmine and Mint (green/yellow bottle) and Black Cedarwood and Juniper (black/grey bottle).

After trying them all out and having our wonderful hand massages we had fallen for the Wisteria and Violet scent, I already own Peony and Blush Suede so can continue to mix them at home for that beautiful sweet smell...even though if I am being honest I don't want to use it up!

Have you tried the new collection?



  1. The Jo Malone event sounds so nice! I did the hand massage at one of the stores in London, and it was sooo amazing :) I'm going to check out the new scents next time I'm shopping. I'm trying to be more consistent with blogging too... I want to post more frequently but there just aren't enough hours in the day!

    1. I know, I feel really quite bad about it all. I hate feeling that I am neglecting this site and all of you but its true, some times you just run out of hours! The event was lovely, I am going to try and go to a few more. It is also nice to find out little extra things about the products :) xx

  2. The event sounds like it was wonderful! I really like the packaging! It almost looks mysterious...hehe

    1. It is! It is some of my favourites that Jo Malone have done. It was a lot of fun, if you ever get the chance you should go along to one, its also nice that you don't have to buy anything if you don't want to. xx
