Inspirational, talented, understated…what’s not to love?
I feel very fortunate, in my line of work, that I get to meet iconic women in the world of fashion and beauty. As regular readers of the Style Post you’ll know these have included most recently Amanda Wakeley OBE, and Alexandra Shulman OBE. Both women oozed drive, determination, passion and excitement for their careers; both women were inspiring, down-to-earth, honest and humorous. I can now add another woman who holds the exact same attributes – the fabulous Jo Malone MBE.
I have to admit I didn’t know too much about the Jo Malone brand. I’ve loved receiving a gorgeous candle or a body crème on occasion (all wrapped in the signature Jo Malone London packaging) but never truly ‘shopped the brand’. I knew even less about the launch of her new business Jo Loves (stunning white and red packaging by the way!). Her intention with this new business was to change the way we look at fragrances, how we apply them, resulting in gorgeous layered scents that make us feel beautiful .
I am planning to visit Jo’s stunning London store (on Elizabeth Street) to try out the Fragrance Brasserie Bar (who knew!). The bar runs through the store and allows you to create your own personal tapas selection. I cannot wait! If you would like to visit the store along with fellow style post readers simply click here by Friday 26th May and we can arrange a fabulous “Maggie Loves Jo” event – it would be a total joy.
Finally, if like me, you love an inspirational read and/or you’re a woman working hard to make her brand stronger every day – check out Jo’s story – simply brilliant (and obviously scented) – genius!
Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
