Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I've searched high and low and haven't found a dedicated Jo Malone thread, but knowing how many of us enjoy JM products I though it'd be nice to have a place where we can share upcoming news and our favorites.

 

My all time favorite is Blue Agava and Cacao, followed by Peony Blush Suede.

I just picked up Basil and Neroli, which to my nose is a dead ringer for Bobbi Brown Beach! As I love Beach, I think this fragrance is going to be a new fave come the spring. It is different enough from Lime, Basil, Mandarin to justify owning both in my collection. Basil and Neroli emphasizes the Neroli while LBM is heavy on the basil and lime, which give it a more herbal edge.

 

EDIT: Updated Jo Malone and Jo Loves perfume collection (100ml, 50ml, 30ml, dry body oils):

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

About 2 weeks ago, Nordstrom had an artist in the cosmetics section hand painting perfumes. I picked up the Star Magnolia hair mist and had the artist paint some flowers on it along with my mothers' initials and a little saying so I can gift it to her for Mother's Day. I just wanted to share this to show everyone the beautiful bottle and to add that star magnolia smells MAGNIFICENT! 🙂

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Ooh I've really wanted to try this one- are there any other perfumes its similar to?

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

The opening is pure white florals, but the dry down veers towards Bobbi Brown perfume territory. I get BB Almost Bare and BB Beach notes after a couple of hours in terms of clean and mildly soapy notes, but the magnolia is still faintly detectable all the way until the end of the day. 

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@Madeline7 Nothing that I can think of is similar to Star Magnolia but I'm sure you can just write down the fragrance notes it has and try to find a similar one based on the notes if you wanted to get an idea of what it smells like. To me it's a combination of sweet and floral but I know that's real vague so it won't help 😐

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Oh that's beautiful!  What a lovely gift.   Your mom is going to LOVE it!

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@michelleshops Thanks 😉

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Darn it, I miss the bottle painting event again 😞 Beautiful! 

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@blackkitty2014 Oh no! I'm sorry about that 😞 They definitely didn't advertise it...I just happened to walk by and see a girl with a table full of fragrances and asked her what was going on. If they have it again, I will be sure to post on the deals thread to let everyone know.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Oh no, I don't mean to make you feel bad. Enjoy! I know Nordstrom uses to have some in-store event that they paint  /engrave the bottle. Somehow I always manage to miss it

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@blackkitty2014 I'll try to remember to tag you next time I hear anything about painting or engraving services!

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@gonerogue That is such a great gift! Making it more personal with a artist and the message, just makes it perfect! This is something you can wear and display! Awesome job!!!!!

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@imlostagain Thanks! I'm trying to introduce my mom to the lovely world of Jo Malone so this will be her first JM fragrance. I hope she likes it as much as we do!

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I just received my Star Magnolia and I concur, it is beautiful! It's floral but not overwhelming, and has a soft, soapy clean dry down that is perfect for the muggy Florida summer! 

 

Your bottle art is gorgeous @gonerogue! Did you also get the cute flower decoration to go around the top? I'm trying to figure out how to fluff out the detail since it got a little squished in transport 😕

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@LCResz Yes the artist kinda did her own thing because I didn't know what kind of flowers to have her paint and she went around the top and asked for my mom's initials to make it a little more personalized. Are you gifting yours as well?

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@gonerogue Got it just for me, as a teacher I'm appreciating myself this week 😉

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

@LCResz no harm in that! Treat yo self! 😉

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

Has anyone tried the Rare Teas collection?

Specifically the Silver Needle Tea cologne?

I got a sampler card in the mail a few days ago and it smells lovely. But it's $240 for 2.7 oz and $340 for 5.1 oz., which kinda (really) hurts me.

How was longevity? Normally, other Jo Malone fragrances last 3 to 4 hours on me, tops. I wouldn't mind as much for paying the heftier price tag if it lasts, say 8+ hours.

(Also, anyone know when would be a good time/where to buy it? I was thinking % off or $$ rewards cards)

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I really had high hopes for this tea collection.  I went and tried them out at Neiman Marcus counter.  I wasnt impressed.  Out of 5-6 of them, i think i like 2.  I dont think it lasts longer than the regular JM but double/tripple the price.  The price sure keeps me away from buying a bottle.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I tried a sampler of the Rare Teas when they came out. They all had pretty minimal longevity (2-3 hours).. i would have considered purchasing one or two if thry came in thr standard LE size and pricing, but imo it's way overpriced for what it is.

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

 @KatieBT or any other mods out there-- it doesn't seem like Sephora has the entire JM fragrances as of now. It's missing White Jasmine and Mint (which happens to be one of my favorites) and a few other permanent scents, like Red Roses, etc. Can we expect to see the rest of the permanent scents, or should we look elsewhere? Thanks much in advance! 🙂

Re: Jo Malone Thread: Share the News and Love!

I sure hope this comes to Sephora!
