Last night I popped down to Jo Malone’s flagship store on Sloane St, as a part of a Chelsea area shopping event.I have always been a big fan of Jo Malone, so was looking forward to speaking to one of their fragrance stylists to help come up with my own signature scent.

Fragrance is such a personal statement, and it can often be quite hard to find your perfect scent. The staff were wonderful, and introduced me to the idea of fragrance combining. Many of the scents at Jo Malone can be worn solo or layered to help create a truly individual effects. I have never been a big fan of floral scents, but was shown how it is possible to freshen a rich floral with a citrus zing – which it turns out to be just my thing!

With guidance from my fragrance stylist, I chose the combination of Plum Blossom and Grapefruit. Plum Blossom, is a limited edition fragrance inspired by cerise. It has the fruitful freshness of yellow plum, combined with floral blooms, creamy sandalwood and clean, white musk. This was offset by the more simple Grapefruit – creating my perfect summer scent.

Plum Blossom is available for £36.00 30ML.
All fragrance combining consultations are complimentary at Jo Malone boutiques.
